Buzz's voice has swagger, confidence and gravitas. Most projects require a read that feels like a real person, not "announcer-y."
His specialties are comedy, sincerity, characters, and the "Celebrity Read," not meaning impersonations, but the style of read you hear from movie and TV stars when they are a brand's spokesperson.
Buzz’s voice has been compared to Adam Baldwin, Nick Offerman, Dennis Leary, Dennis Haysbert, Jeff Bridges, Clint Eastwood, Clancy Brown, Ron Perlman, John Goodman, Bryan Cranston, Sam Elliott, Ed Harris, Jon Hamm, J.K. Simmons, David Harbour, Kiefer Sutherland, David Morse, William Sadler, George Clooney, Alec Baldwin, Mike Rowe, Matthew McConaughey, Robert Downey Jr., & Vin Diesel, but…his voice is distinctive, versatile and unique.
