Portland, Oregon, US
As a professional actor as well as a VO artist, I understand that VO is not merely speaking in a nice voice. I have a deliberately-cultured ability to establish a situation, backstory, persona, purpose, conversational other, and outcome that inform VO performances to make them real. My voice is higher-register and smooth. It is very non-threatening, so both males and females are very comfortable hearing it and even compelled to listen.

VoiceOver provided any way you wish, as any character you wish. I am a native English speaker (west coast USA), as you will hear from my demos. Most of my work is in English, but I have worked in French as well. Please know that I have developed the following personas specifically for VoiceOver work and can use them as a basis for the majority of my engagements. However, I am absolutely not limited to these:
College professor [Everyman with an education]
Chaplain [Everyman with a heart]
Businessman [Everyman - business sophisticated authority]
Hardware store department supervisor [Everyman with authority, yet blue-collar]
Slightly flip/goofy guy (think Hugh Grant) [Everyman - loveable bumbler]
Pharmacist with great sense of humor [Everyman - approachable, make-you-smile authority]
Baby boomer, very comfortable and secure [Everyman - comfortable baby boomer]
