i have recently been laid-off from a career in the retail industry, throughout which my voice-talent had been utilized for audiobooks, public-address [live and pre-recorded], phone-trees, public-readings [child and adult], event emcee, etc.
this experience, coupled with a passion for creating art through video- and audio-production, has led me to a exciting career in the voiceover industry
i am new to "voices.com", but not new to using my voice and recording talents to earn a living
my primary advantage over many competing voice-talents is that i own/operate a no-budget recording studio for "starving artists", so in-house i have the equipment and talent necessary to complete and submit final-product aiff files mastered to industry standards [or converted/compressed for online/digital use] ... i strong consumer background with voiceover for animation and voiceover for audiobooks, that is to say, years worth "researching" the results of voiceover work from across the industry [i'm looking at you, anime over-dubbers!]
throughout my life, especially in the customer-service industry context, i have been told "you have a great voice, you should be on the radio" ... i blush and thank and mumble that i would not know how to breaking in to that kind of industry ... i then explain that if they like me, they should hear my dad
after a lifetime of random strangers suggesting i use my voice for a greater purpose, i decided to put this gift to work ... so, uh, thanks, dad
i am a high school graduate who is self-taught in graphic-design, video-production, audio-production, music-composition, live-sound

negotiable, always fast, all equipment in-house
i have been doing audio- and video-production for many years, and as such have tonnes of equipment that proves useful for a variety of voiceover gigs ... i can easily add effects or foley for exciting radio-spots or dynamic auidiobook performances ... i can deliver finished voiceover work on a variety of media ... i can provide video-production services, including stock-footage and timelapse, as well as endless hours of background music, both from my library of personal compositions to quick overnight inspirations
here are sample rates for my voiceover work ... rates are, of course, only examples, typically the job specifies, o the following are generic non-binding quotes:
TV/radio spots = $111 per minute of finished spot
phone-tree = $11.00 per line [e.g. 'greeting' line,
complete list of menu options, etc.]
audiobook = $111.00 per hour of finished material
[extra for foley, additional cast]
pre-composed background-music = $11 per min.
