My voice over career began nearly 20 years ago when, as a young actor doing theater, commercials and small parts in film and TV, I voiced my first video game. I found it to be an absolutely thrilling experience. Voice over work is my favorite type of performance and I have had the priveledge of working for many major clients over the years.
In the voice realm I have done everything from corporate to commercial, ADR, dubbing, syncing, animation, radio plays, audiobooks, and narration… if it needs a voice, I have done it On this page you will find a massive archive of VO samples for your consideration and entertainment. I have included paid, professional work and other stuff just for fun. I am constantly updating, adding and improving this page so check back often and feel free to leave a comment at the bottom.

ACCENTS & DIALECTS North American
Being from the United States makes North American accents more easy for me to isolate and duplicate that any others because I grew up with them. There are many, many more accents and dialects in North America than most people (inside or out of America) know. California surfer, New York mafia and Southern hick are staples but there is such a wide range, and I am I bit proud that I can do most of them at least to some degree.
ACCENTS & DIALECTS UK / Ireland
Despite having lived in the United Kingdom for over a decade and being a British citizen myself, I still struggle to identify and master many of the dialects of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. The few samples here are the best of my UK accents.
I try to do a whole range of European accents without making them cliche or trite (although I can do that too!)
Accents are tricky because you want to be subtle but accurate. The key to doing accents well is in knowing the dialect. This is difficult to master until you spend real time in the place and/or with the people from the region.
Eastern European accents mostly means “Slavic” – meaning all the many languages that come from former Soviet bloc countries. Speaking helps in my ability to know the subtleties and variety of accents out there.
Most VO jobs call for generic “Eastern European” accents and sometimes the challenge is to humanize the accents so that it doesn’t sound villianous or stupid. However there are many slavic accents each with it’s own dialect.
International meaning all the accents which don’t fall into the North American, United Kingdom or European categories. For now you will find my general Australian, Russian and South African accents here for your consideration.
Animation is one of my absolute favorite things to do in voice. Although I haven’t done a lot, I do love the variety and drastic departures that it allows for in vocal performance. I have quite a few samples listed here that either represent an emulation (some might say, “omage”) of an existing, beloved cartoon character and, some are just characters of my own creation. Zowie!
Announcers come in many shapes and there are lot of expectations around how an announcer should sound based on long-standing conventions. However, the modern approach is to keep it light and personable. Most clients are moving away from the strong “movie-trailer” voice and into a more friendly and casual, yet iformed vocal style.
In these samples you will find both styles represented.
Audiobooks represent a specific form (or niche) within the realm of voice work. It requires a lot of patience and practice to get good at delivering vast amounts of text with consistency. Additionally, there are often many different characters to voice in an audiobook, each requiring a subtle adjustment. Audiobook is a little harder but more rewarding because of the finished product that results. Here are a few segments from audiooks that I have done. Although, I haven’t yet, done very many.
Commercial work has changed over the years. Long gone are the days of “hard-sell” announcer style commercial voices. Today, clients are generally looking for very personable, likeable and natural deliveries. These can be very difficult to pull off overall because it requires a sparkle of life within a contained vocal profile.
Corporate VO is “bread and butter” work that is great for keeping the lights on. I’ve done plenty of corporate VO jobs that usually come in the form of internal, promotional, instructional, or other such videos. The work can sometimes be difficult because you want to bring some life to text that can be technically dry or instructional while at the same time, making the client happy. Here are a few samples where the client was happy. I say they were happy because they paid me.
I don’t do celebrity impersonations per se and, for the most part, you won’t be fooled that these impressions are the real thing but they get one close to the character, rhythm, and vocal quality of these famous personas.
Perhaps it would be best to think of them as “a’la” – as in, voice impression a’la Sean Connery or even “esque”, as in Trump-esque.
Ultimately I am just trying to showcase here how I am able to perform based on a large variety of the world’s most iconic figures/voices.
(plus, they’re just fun to do!)
NARRATION / DOCUMENTARY
Narration and documentary work is a lot of fun to do because essentially you are driving the story and you are the trusted “friend” of the audience. In other words its a responsibility.
Video game VO has evolved dramatically over the years. There are even awards now for video game VO artists, which is amazing. It seems that in the past, character voices we’re something of an afterthought. Most of the emphasis was on the game play, graphics and all those relevent elements.
Now, the voice acting in video games has become as integral to the production value of the game as any other element. Particularly now that we even see “A List” Hollywood actors doing voices.
A majority of games are in the first-person shooter/military/war realm and therefore that is primarily where my voice work in video games has landed. Although, I have managed to do a few other interesting voices along the way.
Here's a sampling of my voice work that includes the original video clip that my voice was built around.
