So before you ask, here’s the answer to the very first question I’m always asked when the subject of voiceovers comes up:
No, I’m not directly related to the famous Don LaFontaine. It’s an uncommon name, though, and my relatives on that side of the family shrug and say that they’re sure he’s some kind of distant cousin. Yes, I met him many years ago, and was charmed and blown away by his one-of-a-kind voice.
However, as I think you’ll hear in this demo, I’ve also got a big deep “Voice of God” that works well for movie trailers, commercials and scaring the cats.
Also, I’m about a foot taller.
