I started working as a voice over artist after finally deciding to listen to my wife. I have always enjoyed performing and entertaining others, and in 2014, I decided to make voice acting my full time career.

My Pledge to You
When I first started this narrating journey in 2013, I had no idea what I was in for. I was working a manufacturing job that was not providing for my family's needs even though I was working full time AND mandatory overtime on the weekends.
A decade later, I have performed close to 300 productions and am still going strong. No matter what was going on in my life, I always strived to be different and challenge myself with each new book, not willing to do the same thing over and over again. I have met amazing authors and narrators who taught me what makes a story more whole and believable to the human ear.
Now, technology–specifically AI Voices and Machine Learning Programs–are being used to cut out actors. Some are harvesting voices from Librivox or just straight up stealing a person's voice without their permission.
In light of these new developments, I felt it important to reassure my audience and establish this pledge:
I pledge never to use artificially intelligent (AI) voices in any of my performances, nor will I ever work with an AI program to narrate one of my own written works. I will always hire actual human beings for the job.
We narrators are professionals and have spent years honing our craft to give you, the listener, a deeper, richer, and more immersive experience. Let us entertain you like nothing else can.
