I understand that your project is very important to you and your time is limited. Below, you'll read only the most pertinent and important information you'll need. If you don't have a lot of time, just read the bold parts.

My voice is highly in demand in today's consumer market. I'm a 25 year old professional voice over actor or voice talent (whichever you prefer). Internationally recognized and trusted brands like Adobe, AT&T, DreamWorks, Red Bull, NBC Universal, Sony and Chevrolet have been absolutely thrilled with how my voice can get their clients to react both emotionally and actively to their projects. That's why they give me 5 star reviews and keep coming back to me again and again. Before you continue...

You are the pilot of your project, and I am your co-pilot.

You care for your project more than anyone else which is why it's important for you to work with top quality, highly qualified people. That's why I am here to make your job easier and to assist with whatever you need and require. Moreover, I have rigorously studied, practiced, and broken down commercial copy (a rarity among other talent) with well-known, top VO coach, casting director, and agent Nancy Wolfson. With that in mind, I am more than capable of flying this thing myself if you are unsure about what you need from the voice over in terms of delivery, style, and other factors.

On top of that, I have meticulously put together an audio engineer approved recording space. I have a sound booth designed specifically for voice over and have acoustically treated it. I am also capable of producing, editing, formatting, and delivering top quality professional recordings in any file format of my voice with my recording software and studio setup.

If the voice over you need is for your business and personal project, your customers, clients, friends, and family will be extremely impressed with your product after we work together. If the voice over is for a client of yours, your client will come back to you again and again because you offer superb quality across the board, especially when it comes to voice over talent.

From nationally televised commercials, to online explainer videos, to radio promos, to audiobooks, to long form training videos, and beyond, I can deliver exactly what you need in style, performance, and delivery of your copy.

HEADS UP: My voice is VERY IN right now. Just ask Nancy Wolfson. Seriously. Ask her. Her website is

#### Voice description: Very contemporary, millennial, hip, fresh, laid back, generation Y (gen Y), textured, emotional, wry, sarcastic, friendly, believable, 20-something, and authentic (early 20's to mid 30's)

My voice is highly in demand right now. My sound targets that key, cool, young, millennial, Gen Y demographic (a.k.a. most of my friends and peers). It's also very in demand for projects targeted at older audiences to create that hip and knowing edge.

Hidden piece of information

What many people don't know is that I graduated summa cum laude (highest honors possible) and Phi Beta Kappa (honors society) with a 4 year degree in psychology from St. John's University in Collegeville, MN (a perennial top private college in the midwest) and minors in business management and Spanish. Hopefully, this will put you at ease knowing that you are working with someone who works VERY hard in all aspects of life.

My studies and research in psychology have given me valuable tools to really dig deep and find out what really makes people tick. This helps me to pry open the vault that is your audience's psyche and really get them to react to your script.

##### To really reach your audience and get them to react to your project, the best way to reach me is through my contact submission form on the right side of my website at Head over there now before you forget. Or you can simply email me at

Good luck with all of your projects, and please don't forget to hit the heart icon to favorite my profile so you can come back to me in the future.

Have a wonderful day and happy casting.

Narration For Travel Channel National Television Series

I had the pleasure of hiring John Lano to be the narrator of two recent series which ran on The Travel Channel. I recommend John highly for any production looking for a young, energetic, expressive voice talent. He was very willing to give the script several different “reads” and was extremely accepting of coaching to get us the exact style we were looking for. He handled difficult pronunciations exceptionally well, and even with the hardest of foreign names John was spot-on, closely following our pronunciation guide. In addition to his great-sounding voice, John was a consummate professional. He was early for every recording session, stayed as long as it took to get through the scripts, which tended to run long since each program was an hour. John was also very willing to make narration changes on the fly when the producer asked for those and did not hesitate to ask questions when were unclear about our instructions or needs.

As an added bonus, John was able to record pick-up track from his home studio which delivered a very high quality voice over. That saved our company time and money by not having to do those additional recordings in the main studio, and the narration from his home system blended in perfectly with the rest of the recording.

I hope to hire John Lano again in the near future and recommend him to others looking for a professional narrator for either short commercial projects or longer broadcast / web ones.
