Extremely versatile American English voice, age range 20-55, characters as well as a very commercial and current voice. Baritone/tenor timbre with impressive 4-octave range for high cartoon tones also; always professional and prompt. Typical "guy-next-door" mid-range, with great range for those needing a deep voice as well. I can imitate John Krasinski in the Esurance commercials, Josh Lucas in the Home Depot commercials, Mark Elliot from the Disney Home Video Trailers, and many more! I excel at reading scripts needing a conversational style. Perfect for young adult and middle age scripts, as well as a raspy, gritty senior voice. Strengths include: narration, explainer videos, whiteboard animation, corporate training, e-learning, characters, humor, witty, and conversational. I also book a lot of work in animation, video games, and projects needing cowboy, country, folksy, etc. I love to create original voices, but I am also able to imitate some celebrities. Just give me somebody and I'll work something up for you.
I excel at the following vocal types: Believable, Conversational, Friendly, Professional, Confident, Authoritative, Informative, Corporate, Animated, Natural, Announcer, Educational, Upbeat, Attractive, Warm, Genuine, Caring, Narrator, Knowledgeable, Sincere, Calming, High Energy, Amusing, Storyteller, Deep, and Motivational.

I am always professional and only put out high quality voice work. I am honest and courteous. I LOVE what I do, and it shows! I take pride in getting the read right the first time... but I'm very flexible regarding adjustments the client wants to hear. It may be your project, but it's my reputation. I take both very seriously! Please feel free to inquire anytime! I'm extremely accessible --- day or night.
I am a seasoned audio producer! If you would like music and/or effects, please let me know. I'd be happy to help!

From Olga Kosova
Perfect interpretation for the project and extremely easy to work with. I would definitely recommend and use William Dougan for future projects.Artifact 2613
From Carlton Hickman
William did a great job on our project. We had a very specific vision for the voice over and he went above and beyond to make sure we got what we needed. I'll add that the recorded audio sounded good too. I add this point because the quality of recorded audio can vary greatly. The performance and the quality of the audio go hand in hand.Andrew Penziner Productions LLC
From Andrew Penziner
I was very pleased with William's performance. He has that rare talent to sound 'natural' as if he is really telling you something instead of reading it, the way your friends would talk to you.Eelke Dekker Film & Animatie
As for working with him, he's fast and the files he delivers are of high technical quality, which hardly need mastering.
