The magic all started at Disneyland. While others were enchanted by Mickey and Minnie or Sleeping Beauty’s castle, Dave was drawn to the Haunted Mansion. He was not intrigued by the frightening aspect, but by the disembodied voice. Others screamed and gasped, but Dave spent the entire ride trying to mimic (what he was later to learn was the Legendary voice of Paul Frees). Instead of a dream coming true, a dream was born. He did not aspire to be a prince or a pirate. Instead, he was riveted by the human voice and its limitless range of capabilities. Dave had discovered his passion for voiceover. “The Happiest Place on Earth” gave birth to a lifelong dream.
As a team player Dave’s highest priority is the client. If he feels his own down to earth conversational reads are not right for the project, he will gladly provide the next artist with the opportunity. At the same time, he is a bit of a risk taker, and is always keen to try new things. At the start of his career, a naturally clear and engaging voice landed him a few gigs that may have been outside of his wheelhouse. Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Sangre de Christo mountains in Colorado, he played both a gun toting cowboy and the announcer at an old west theme park. After a stint on the radio, voice acting took over and the dream became a reality.
“We all hold the possibility of expressing our inner intentions, vision, and dreams through our voice.” Ray Davi
