BELOW.) Jeff has studied with two outstanding voice-acting coaches; most recently, he trained with Tommy Griffiths, an internationally recognized voice-over artist and coach (who does training programs for voices.com).

Both Tommy and Chuck can be found on the web.

He also wrote a highly praised book on that topic, "Successful Marketing to the 50+ Consumer" (Prentice-Hall).
Having spent an entire career in marketing and communications-- with a tilt toward the healthcare sector-- Jeff is familiar with almost everything in that realm. Having written a business book and authored "fee-paid" articles and reports, he can also offer FREE proofreading for pieces that are under 250 words. In addition, his fee includes two revisions.
Jeff's degree was in Radio-TV-Film from Temple University. Throughout his career, he has worked in the communications field, handling anything from speaking engagements, to newscasts, to training programs, to writing assignments, to consulting.
As a baby boomer, he would be particularly credible if you are interested in reaching the GIGANTIC and growing age 50+ market... and how can you NOT be-- even if you are selling baby food. (Hello, grandparents!!) He has excellent overall marketing and communications skills, is creative, and an excellent writer and proofreader.

I am Alessandro Pinna, President of MV International. I had the occasion of watching the Video of our network that you developed and whose narrating voice was provided by your person. I express my deepest and most sincere satisfaction about your work and, particularly, I note that your voice was perfect, in both tone and cadence, for the purposes of the Video. I am sure this will provide a substantial added value and contribute to the success of the product. While commending you again for your contribution, I take this occasion for expressing the hope that we might cooperate again in the future.MV International (Italy)

Recently, I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff Ostroff to create a 30-second voice-over ad for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Delaware in Wilmington. I wanted an ad that was dynamic using both pictures and spoken words to highlight the feel of this unique program designed for people 50+ to stay intellectually and socially engaged. This ad was created for our webpage at www.lifelonglearning.udel.edu/wilm and for our Facebook page.University of Delaware
I chose Jeff to create this piece for several reasons. One is the quality and clarity of Jeff’s speaking voice. The other is his ability to work with my concept. Throughout the process, which was very quick, I had multiple opportunities to evaluate test samples and offer feedback. I am very pleased with the final product and the short turnaround time it took to produce it.
I highly recommend Jeff's services.
