Derek Botten has many years in front of a microphone recording radio/TV commercials, instructional videos and presentations. He has also gained traction in recording audio books and documentaries. Derek has a friendly, casual read and can easily offer higher energy, urgent reads. Do you need custom characterizations with or without the addition of regional dialects? How do you hear the character you have created? Southern dullard? Irate Scotsman? Menacing Russian? Comedic Brit? Let Derek Botten create a memorable character for you!
I have an expressive, pleasant straight read with excellent diction and enunciation. Full time voice actor with speedy turnaround times!

We are glad we chose Derek over the 60+ people who responded. He gave us multiple range and takes until we nailed down the narration we needed. His turnaround was super fast, as well. A++, would hire again.

5 star service! Great job from Derek Botten! He gave a unique read in the audition that was perfect for my project. He was extremely quick and we got it done the same day. Great job!

Jitterbug Media, Georgia

Derek was great to work with: prompt, funny, easy-going, and took direction well. He also delivered a wonderfully energetic read of a very technical script that was exactly what my client was looking for.
