The Computer Guy:

If you're looking for the pencil-necked computer geek
with my name (and who looks a lot like me except for

search engine optimization

The Voice Over Guy:

And then there's this completely other Nelson Goforth out there
who's a commercial voice over actor, but we won't even talk about
him -- though he won't shut up. Listen to his voiceover demo.
