Born in St. Louis, MO, Dennis made his stage debut, with the aid of much greasepaint, as Fagin in Oliver at age 18. After receiving his BA degree with honors from Southern Illinois University, he toured the country from Alaska to Alabama acting in Shakespeare, performing in regional theatre dramas, and playing it for laughs on the national dinner-theatre circuit.
During a decade in New York City, Dennis was able to elude both a day job and Broadway stardom while launching a successful 30-year career in voice-overs. He has been heard in hundreds of commercials, narrations, recorded books, radio dramas, and computer games. He is also a trained Benefit Auctioneer. Dennis makes his home in Seattle, WA with his wife and two sons where he continues to perform for the stage & screen, and, of course, the microphone.
