A compilation of some favorite projects.
I have been a SAG-AFTRA Voiceover performer since before there was a SAG-AFTRA, 2004 to be precise. Always a consummate professional, I provide prepared, intelligent and responsive reads to make you sessions a breeze and your spots pop. In addition, my long history of theatrical work, and childhood passion for mimicking cartoon voices can bring your animated characters to life. Coaching and demo directing services are also available.

"I've been fortunate to work with Brian on a number of animated shorts. Brian is the most versatile, energetic, and personable voice over actor I have ever worked with. Brian is an asset to any production he is part of."
Cheryl Ross Mitchell (Quicksilver, Freelance Producer)
"For a Millennial sound with attitude, Brian's your guy. Regardless of how dense or complex the copy, Brian makes it come alive. He's definitely a "go-to" guy."
Michael Spencer (Alight Solutions)
"... we produce videos that could easily end up feeling pretty dull. Brian is one of my go-to actors for taking this dry content and adding life. He can take a video about benefits enrollment and make it fun. Or serious. Or quirky. Or straightforward. Whatever mood I'm looking for, Brian does something brilliant and somehow ends up conveying an approachable tone and delivery that just draws people in—He speaks with clarity and always comes prepared to nail the project on the first take."
My passion for the craft of voice over, and a long history of teaching naturally lead me to become vo teacher, coach and most recently a demo director. I teach Voiceover at Columbia College Chicago, and the Acting Studio Chicago, and I have taught workshops for University of Illinois Chicago, WIRE School of Music, and Dominican University. I'm also a private VO coach and Demo director.

"Brian is an absolute pleasure to work with, putting me at ease the entire time and cheering me on every step of the way. He really cares and it shows; I have done some of my best work with him."- Clayton Margeson
"I loved working with Brian. He's a great coach and I really appreciated the positive and collaborative environment he engendered - really trusted him, his taste level, his choices in scripts, his coaching and felt like I could do my best work with him at the helm. My demo is great and my agent loves it, too!"
"Brian really understood how to challenge everybody in class according to their individual needs and styles. He assessed and refined my strengths and helped me to identify areas I can improve to become more well rounded and prepared for a career in voice over."
"I had no experience with voice over work before the beginner’s course with Brian, and I didn’t know what to expect. Brian fosters a supportive and encouraging environment, and I felt I was comfortable pushing myself and let myself take risks."
