While at KKIS, he began performing independent voice-over work, and has since utilized his many character voices in nationally-aired radio & television commercials, as well as multimedia software. He voiced the role of the Robot Pilot on Deep Earth Exploration, a motion simulator dark ride at MGM Grand Adventures Theme Parkmarker in Las Vegasmarker.
