About Ben

I’ve been a working actor and voice actor for over 20 years. My style might best be described as gritty, blue-collar conversational Mike Rowe style commercial and narration, to warm, playful Seth Rogan type character reads, to polished and professional corporate presentations. Yup, that’s a pretty broad range. You can hear it all in the demo section. But, what my clients respond to most is that I bring an authentic, accessible and distinct male voice to their projects.

With a strong background in improv comedy, I began my voiceover career in Chicago working for industry leading ad agencies such as DDB Needham and Leo Burnett on accounts for clients including Anheuser-Busch and McDonald’s. After relocating to Los Angeles and working on television shows ranging from The Office to Criminal Minds, I added campaigns for John Deere, Trane Inc., Honda, Microsoft, Nationwide Insurance, Publix, Jared Jewelers and more to my client list. I’ve also voiced additional roles on the Halo and Final Fantasy franchises in the gaming world.

My return clients most appreciate my professionalism, creativity and positive approach to my work. After attending St. Ambrose University, I’m proud to have trained at The Players Workshop in Chicago, The Second City Training Center in Los Angeles and several top training programs for on camera acting also in Los Angeles. I’ve been on staff at Kalmenson & Kalmenson and an instructor at The VO Dojo, both in Los Angeles. In my own development, I’ve trained with most of the top Voiceover coaches in the industry over the years and am happy to provide a complete list upon request.
