Hi there, I'm Will. I’ve spent the last 10 years exploring the artsy-science of storytelling and persuasive speech, and put in many a late night to streamline success in the voice over industry (commercials and cartoons). Over the past 5 years, 200+ repeat clients in 23 countries have trusted me to speak for them, to be an advocate for their brand.
For years, I've spoken for other people...now, I want to teach others to speak for themselves. Maybe you're trying to gain greater confidence in speaking, maybe you're looking to modify your native accent, maybe you want to regain your old voice after a stroke or injury, maybe you want to build a sustainable career in acting/vo like I've done. Whatever you're after, I can help.
Serving burgeoning and veteran VO students both online and in-person (300+ hours of individual and group coaching). Selective coaching in areas of P-ESL, accent modification, public speaking, and health-related rehabilitation.
Serving the international market (200+ repeat clients in 23 countries), with a specialization in commercial and corporate storytelling.

Was looking for a speaking coach to help me become a better GM and storyteller. Will is an honest-to-God Matt Mercer. I’m 20 sessions in and my friends already notice a huge difference. Thank you!!
Will walked me through each step of building a VO business: technique, marketing, professional standards, you name it. I got my first paid job today and I owe a hell of lot to Will’s training. If you want a coach who will go the extra mile and will celebrate your success without reservation--look no further. He is a superstar.Show More
