Over 20 years Studio, Radio and Television broadcast experience in medium to major markets throughout Europe while in military with the Armed Forces Network (AFN) Radio & TV. Writes jingles, poetry, and screenplays. Does voice characters (diverse young & old). With experience in various media production areas and a background in Radio, Marketing and Advertising, including having worked both on-staff and as a freelance consultant at various agencies. Keith Jay draws on a range of skills to bring unique perspectives and offerings to the voice overs industry.
A native of the Central Florida Orlando Area, Keith got his start in voice overs in the late 1990s, a path found from a life of activity in radio, performing arts and the music industry. "I'll always love singing and play acting on stage and writing and stand up urban poetry, but working behind the mic is probably what comes most naturally to me as a voice over actor,"
Keith remarks upon completion of his home studio in 2005. "Aside from how it can be very comfortable to approach from having a singer/songwriter's, stand up poetry, and play actor background which helps one learn the physical controls like mic proximity, placements and breathing, with voice overs it's not so much about performing - it is about the art of storytelling.
