About Good Voice Studios
I have a natural matter-of-fact, instructive tone that can be understated, calm, even avuncular. This helps me come across as precise, intelligent, serious.

I work from a dedicated VO studio and can easily connect with you for remote collaboration through Source-Connect, IPDL, Zoom or Skype.

Once upon a time, at the start of the 21st century, I remarried, became a stepparent to three boys, and started a weekly newspaper–all at the same time. This despite having never owned a business, worked on a newspaper, taken a journalism class, sold advertising, or been a parent.

The internet revolution began to obliterate the newspaper industry. At home, my new wife and two of my step-sons developed life-threatening illnesses.
Somehow, with the help of family, friends, and a little humor, I eventually found my way through this attempt at making a small fortune.
