A two-time Emmy Award–winning voice actor (first for his portrayal of Professor Behdety in the 2003/2004 season of Tutenstein, then again as The Doorman and his dog Hundley on the 2009/2010 season of Curious George), he has been in hundreds of productions ranging from original animation, anime, video games, celebrity voice matching, and movie trailers. He is known for playing the voice of Han Solo for Lucas Arts, Doctor Neo Cortex in Crash Twinsanity, Crash Tag Team Racing, Crash of the Titans and Crash: Mind over Mutant (replacing Clancy Brown), The Doorman and Hundley in Curious George, Dr. Polaris, Batman as Dick Grayson in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Ecliptor in Power Rangers: In Space, the Wolf Duke Org Zen-Aku in Power Rangers: Wild Force and Captain Cold, General Nardoc, multiple characters in Justice League Unlimited, and Calypso in the "Twisted Metal series".

He is also known worldwide for his anime voice work playing roles such as Kenshiro from Hokuto no Ken Fist of the Northstar, Sanosuke Sagara from Rurouni Kenshin, Goemon Ishikawa XIII in Geneon's dub of Lupin III part two, and Crim from .hack//SIGN. He has provided the voice for Japanese voice actor Makio Inoue's two most well-known characters, Captain Harlock and Goemon Ishikawa (although Harlock was played by Koichi Yamadera in the newest series, and replaced Pete Capllan after Harlock Saga). He is a singer, composer and lead guitarist in his band, LeXLang. He also has a band alongside with fellow voice actor and close friend, Bentley Mitchum named The Velvet Box. He is married to fellow voice actress and founder, Sandy Fox. Together, they perform in an acoustic duo called Butterfly.
