Events don’t sound like they used to. Whether it’s live, virtual or hybrid, your event is an opportunity to deliver an outstanding audience experience. That’s always been part of my job as voice talent.
At live events, the work I do announcing is a conduit between the action and the audience, or the performers and their crowd. It can be subtle, simply reinforcing audience response. Or it can be theatrical, part of the spectacle.
As a kid, I was an artist… and an actor. As a grown-up with a real career in voiceover and as a live events announcer, my acting has become billable. That’s what I’m up to here, for example. No, that’s not my typical demeanour!
Father/son duo at Champions Rise MMA event. Very cool for me to anchor the worldwide TV streaming desk as my son, Jay, announces in the cage and provides broadcast commentary — a unique live event announcing combination.
I’m big in Germany and other parts of Europe! As a voice talent, you get to work for people everywhere, delivering global English reads. And the Europeans seem to like my deep, smoky, Monster Trucking voice.
