As you will see from my client list, I form long-term relationships with my clients. We work together over the years to find the best ways to promote, explain or market their product or company. I work really hard to give my clients exactly what they want and, in most cases, throw in a little something special that they don't see coming!

Starting with commercials, I've been lucky enough to work in some of the most prestigious studios in Santa Monica, Venice, Burbank and NYC. I have served as the voice of Honda, Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey's Circus, Nascar, Sizzler, Time-Warner Cable and Cashcall Mortgage* to name a few.

Next, my promo work! I formed a close relationship with Warner Brothers in Burbank, CA where I got to work as their international Promo announcer for Warner TV. Here I promoted great shows like the Big Bang Theory, Two and Half Men, The New Adventures of Old Christine and many others to audiences literally all over the world! So whether your promoting a book, a TV show or a feature film- I bet I can help spread the word!.

On the animation side of the biz, I trained under the legendary Hanna Barbara Casting Director Susan Blue. I then went on to gain valuable experience working with great companies like Disney and LeapFrog. For Disney, I voiced the 25th Anniversary reboots of classic cartoons like "Lady and the Tramp" and "Jungle Book" to name a few. I then worked for Leapfrog as not only a VO artist, but also as a co-writer and producer as they launched their LeapFrog LeapPad book series. For middle school students that meant working on their "LeapFrog Lit Bits" series where I voiced great characters in the "Great Gatsby", "Hamlet" and "Huck Finn". For young readers, I got to he play tons of fun characters in their young reader adventure series. My ultimate dream was to be Walter in "Walter the Farting Dog"!

I also work regulary with great companies like Hewlett-Packard, Mazda, Kia, LeapFrog, Astonish, ProCurve and Oracle talking about everything from engines to insurance to construction to supercomputers!

Do you have something to try outside of my experience above? Great! I love a challenge! Let's get started!

Service Description

This is my attitude with every project I undertake large or small! I give every project 150% with no exception! That means unparalleled communication, prompt service, a professional can-do attitude, not to mention THE most important thing- a great SOUND!

Having been an industry professional for 8 years I haven't seen it all yet, but I'm sure workin' on it! I've been fortunate to work at some of the most prestigious studios in the country alongside great pros like Kiefer Sutherland, Kathryn Morris, Donald Sutherland, Anthony LaPaglia and Martin Sheen to name a few. More importantly, I've been privileged to work on projects as of all shapes and sizes...and found that each one offered a unique learning experience and opportunity to work with great people! I bring a winning can-do attitude to every project and am happy to wear whatever hats you need from voice over artist, to co-writer, to editor, to collaborator. I can't wait to add you as a client and friend! LET'S DO IT!


I've had the pleasure of working with BJ for a few years now and have found him to be a true professional both in and out of the booth! He typically nails the read with his audition, but we bring him into record in the booth anyways because we truly enjoy his company... He understands nuance and inflection, takes direction extremely well and has a sixth sense about what we're after in terms of delivery. When we're in a pinch, Brent has recorded quickly via phone patch from his professional grade home studio. And even when he's thousands of miles away, if we need him; he figures out a way to make it work and get us what we need ASAP. I highly recommend Brent (as long as it's not for a competitive brand). ;)

Matthew Coates - KOVELLFULLER- Ad Agent for CashCall Mortgage(current client), Time-Warner Cable, Sizzler and many more

Tony Durkett - MEADSDURKETT- Advertising Agent for SoCal Honda

BJ does an awesome awesome job for us and we've been more than happy with his work. Thank you for all of it! I've been nothing but pleased with all the work you've done with the LeapFrog Lit Bits books!

"I think he made this product! I can't imagine having recorded the 8 books we completed with anyone else. He's a great voice talent and it's always a pleasure when we work together.

Tom Mott- TomMott Studios-Advertising Producer for LeapFrog's LeapPad Reading products

When I have a high profile project for HP or Oracle, Brent is my go to guy! I have worked with Brent for the last 8 years servicing the many divisions of HP and Oracle. He just gets it! Whether it be SuperComputing or Printing or Commercial Brent delivers the goods! Industrial sales video, customer testimonial, or live

John Lawrence -IWC- Advertising Agent for multiple divisions of Hewlett Packard

I've worked with Brent for the last 8 years in the world of Voiceover as a an end-to-end VO producer and agent. I can say without hesitation that he is one of my most bookable talents! He is reliable, prompt, consistent, professional and most important versatile! Whether your product is food or electronics, whether your genre is videogames or commercial, Brent can do it all!

James Mandell- Owner/Agent VoiceOver LA

BJ's work on "The Wire" series was rock solid! He immediately grasped our unique project needs (TV narration for the visually-impaired) and fit right into our team! He was a ton of fun and an absolute pleasure to work with!

Justin Sohl- Hollywood Access Services

I call BJ "Sophie's Choice" because his reads are all so solid that it makes it very tough to pick the best one. Whether he is promoting one of our comedies like "Two and A Half Men" or "The Big Bang Theory" or one of our dramas like "One Tree Hill", Brent brings some "special sauce" to every single promo!

Nick Hyman- Producer for Warner TV International

"I've worked with a lot of talent in the voice over world and I can honestly say Brent Schraff is hands down one of the most talented vo artists I've ever worked with. He is able to handle everything that is thrown at him with total professionalism and ease. With a natural gift for pacing and amazing breath control, he is simply a pleasure to work with. BJ is one of the best voices in the business and I would go out of my way to work with him on any given day". - BOBBY SELVAGGIO-OWNER
