Hi there, I’m Crystal Place. I’m a full-time Global Voice Over Artist and Producer who offers professional voice over services for a variety of projects for clients around the world. I thoroughly enjoy what I do, so if you have a project you’d like voice work for that is not listed, please feel free to drop me a line and tell me about it! I’m always happy to provide you with your own free custom audition upon request.

After more than 14 years in the business, I’ve come to understand what clients need and should expect from a polished, professional voiceover. I also came to realize that what really delighted me was using my voice, interpreting and creating, to fill the needs of my clients. More and more I learned that this work really is my play. I delight in playing with my voice to get just the right tone – whisper, smile, sarcasm, warmth, joy, concern, excitement, sincerity, humor, depth, storytelling – that my clients want for their projects. And I enjoy collaborating with them to give them everything they were hoping for when their projects grew and flourished in their imaginations.
I do work for commercials, E-learning, corporate videos, tutorials, training, phone prompts, industrials and a host of other voice services you may find on my website Place Narration.
I look forward to providing great, professional voice services to you and your team! Drop a line anytime.

I usually record and turnaround short-form projects with 24-48 hours depending on how booked I am.
My voice is often described with words like “bright, sweet, warm and conversational.” Other common ones are “smart, friendly, unique and playful.” Whatever your needs might be, I’d be happy to provide just the read you imagined for your next project. Whether it’s a fresh, organic voice to share your new product with the world, a friendly, girl-next-door read that invites them in, a hip, 20 or 30-something that’s got the scoop, a user-friendly voice that can engage people simply and clearly with complicated technical terms, a real-live conversational read that delivers your story, capturing your “readers” from chapter to chapter, or a fun and playful voice that engages children and parents alike – I’m your gal. I do this full-time, and because I love it. My work is professional quality, and my background lends me the skills to identify the various needs of my clients and their projects, (and happily adjust until they are, frankly, thrilled with the results).
It is my goal (and pleasure) to delight my clients, and I enjoy the challenge of executing reads just as you were hoping for, (and surpassing your expectations is always fun too). I offer competitive rates, have flexible availability, take direction well or can self-direct and provide a finished file. I also have professional ISDN or SourceConnect access, and can connect easily to your studio – anywhere in the world. Most recently I’ve done work with clients in Israel for phone-prompts (yes, they “traveled” all the way to the U.S. to find the perfect voice for their phone system!), a multi-national products and services trading company based in Switzerland, and for a learning device company (with nearly every word in the English language) for adults in Korea. I am a storyteller at heart, so if I had to choose a favorite method of delivery, storytelling is mine, but really I just adore the wonderful variety of work I get to do. (It sure keeps the days interesting!)
