Not Political. Just American.
Chris has maintained a voice career over 2 decades because he solves 3 main obstacles that businesses face.
Time: 84% of Americans agree they need more time to spend with family and friends. Save time by bringing Chris onboard to be ‘the voice’ of your company’s advertising, promotional, or e-Learning projects because Chris delivers before the deadline – every time.
Energy: Because you’ve saved time going with Chris and not enduring the complicated process of using a third party Casting Site to hire a voice, you have extra energy to put into other things that your business craves.
Money: Save 10-20% of your voice budget by hiring directly through Chris versus a Casting Site. Plus take advantage of discounts Chris offers to repeat clients, and even monthly retainer agreements ensuring you will save money.
My American Values
Independence: Americans are very proud of being self-reliant, and Chris is no different. We can not truly be free if we cannot take care of ourselves and be independent. Chris understands that if he puts in the hard work, this creates his independence! Having these values inspires Chris to deliver you the best. He brings individualism to every project he’s assigned to, and that’s important!
Equality: Just as all men and women should be treated equal, Chris also believes that all businesses should be treated equally. His continued A+ Rating with the BBB shows that he treats clients fairly, with dignity and with the utmost respect and professionalism that they deserve.
Individualism: The truth is, everyone is different. Everyone has a different voice, a different reading style, and a different set of skills to bring to the table. Just as each script is unique, Chris brings his individual style – lifting written word, to life!

Always ask yourself a few questions:
Do they voiceover full time or is it a hobby?
In 2 years will that part-time voice that you hired still be around?
