Steven is known for his rich, versatile voice. Steven personifies the warm guy next door yet can embody a variety of character voices and accents as well.

Steven's voice runs the gamut from animated, authentic, authoritative, believable, calming, commanding, confident, conversational, corporate, crazy, creepy, easy going, edgy, educational, enthusiastic, evil, excitable, fast paced, forceful, friendly, geeky/nerdy, genuine, Gen X, Gen Y, gritty, high energy, hip, humorous, informative, inspirational, manly, motivational, ominous, playful, political, professional, reassuring, romantic, rugged, scary, scientific, sincere, smooth, snobby, spooky, stodgy, straightforward, technical and upbeat.
