The Voice

Joe presents a wide range of vocal skills, ranging from your friendly guy-next-door to a powerful, serious movie trailer introduction. Whether you need to draw someone into another world with skillful characterization or deliver information quickly and efficiently, Joe can be that voice for your project. With practical linguistic experience and formal education in Russian, Arabic, and German, Joe can emulate a wide variety of accents (not limited to those three!) as well as achieve convincing native pronunciation of words in other languages As a matter of fact, his first voiceover job was acting as a cartoon panda bear speaking Arabic to children learning their numbers - how's _that for versatility? Need a southern accent? A tough guy from New York or New Jersey? Mob boss? Marvin the Martian? A smooth, classy British accent? Throw Joe a curveball and ask for something new and fresh. He loves a challenge and doesn't mind sounding a little ridiculous every once in a while! In his demos, you'll hear: British, Irish, Smurfs, Animal from the Muppets, Marvin the Martian, JFK, redneck, Russian, southern twang, and more! With the ability to easily switch between hip young adult and confident, authoritative middle age, Joe can capture that Generation X or Generation Y sound you're looking for and uniquely adapt it to your movie trailer, video game, commercial, or radio ad. Explainer videos, mobile app advertisements, and e-learning are also a snap - Joe can absorb technical terms quickly and deliver them like a pro!

The Customer Service Years of military service has given Joe a rare sense of respect and professionalism as well as the ability to multi-task and time manage. No matter how many projects he may be juggling at once, yours will always seem like it's the number one priority; you'll receive fast, efficient, and open communication, ample opportunities for direction and feedback, and a polished, finished product in record time. With a turnaround time that's measured in hours instead of days, your project will shoot to the forefront of the ever-closing windows of opportunity.

The Extras (Why They Call Him the Modern Renaissance Man) Not only can Joe provide you with a diverse set of voice options, he can also give your project original music to bring it to life! Whether it be a video game soundtrack, a film trailer score, or a catchy ditty that will stick in your customers' heads, Joe can do it all from his studio. Professionally trained on several live instruments and a rising star in the audio engineering world, Joe has received international acclaim for his work at OverClocked Remix, where he goes by the alias XPRTNovice, and high praise from experts in the industry. As if that wasn't enough, Joe is also a professionally published fiction author. With works appearing in over a dozen publications online and in print, Joe is available to skillfully craft dialog, professional copy, compelling narratives, and more! Does your script need tinkering? Translation from technical jargon into layman terms? Joe has the skill and experience to make it happen.

My professionally-outfitted studio provides both quality and timeliness, and I have a versatile audio background that can add just the right flavor to any audio recording.

Get the right voice for your production with my versatile range of voices and moods. And direction is a snap thanks to my strong working knowledge of grammar, diction, and vocabulary as well as my easy-to-work-with attitude.

As a bonus, if you're looking for original, custom music tracks to fit your needs, my studio is filled to the brim with instruments and high-quality loops and samples for any genre, backed by over 20 years experience as a musician, composer, and arranger.


Well done job. Immense professionalism and patience, especially in this particularly difficult client we were handling. Two thumbs up for Joseph. It was truly a pleasure working with this gentleman.
