Experience

I have several years of freelance experience as a voice over artist. I have a home studio where I record, edit, and produce the final product. For audiobooks, I am an Audible Approved Producer with ACX (Audiobook Creation Exchange) where I have narrated several fiction and non-fiction pieces.

I've also provided narrations for business presentations and am a volunteer at the Carnegie Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (under the auspices of the National Library Service, NLS) in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA, where I narrate, edit, and produce audiobooks for patrons of the library.

My main delivery can best be described as middle-American, adult and authoritative, but I do have the flexibility of performing other deliveries including voice characterizations and impersonations.

Testimonials

In terms of effusive praise for the narrator: I just want him to know that I had auditioned 22 local actors in my region, and no voice jumped out at me. I had specific things in mind when looking for a voice. I have been in radio broadcasting for more than 40 years, and I knew what I was seeking. I knew immediately that his voice was the right one. This was a tremendous amount of work, and I appreciate not only the narrator, but also the ease with which this project moved throughout the entire production. With my radio experience, I know what goes into making ten minutes of recording work, much less eight hours' worth. (I do a two-hour weekly radio show.) I was impressed with every step of the way during this project. Perhaps the most difficult thing for me was what I called audio proofing--listening to the recording and carefully ensuring that the book made sense on an audio level as well as on a visual level. Thank you for an excellent experience. I would definitely recommend your services strongly and without hesitation to other authors.

After listening to this book I will be a permanent fan of Joe Farinacci. He's not particularly varied in his voice performance but he's very comforting and easy to listen to. Very important Book for me.

The connection between Stone and Jana is heart warming. This made me cry! Now the spy aspect was intense. I was on my seat and couldn’t put it down. Joe did a great job with changing voice with the characters.
