While Don Leslie has a signature sound that is deep, authoritative, velvety and resonant, his vocal range is extremely diverse. His is a multi-dimensional voice that allows editors a multitude of choices. A voice that weds words to emotion--almost disappearing when necessary or giving the written word the chance to soar above the mundane.

I've done thousands of TV & Radio commercials for products like Ford, Rolaids, General Electric, Thomsen's Wood Protector, Mercury Engines, Revlon, Chase Bank, Disney, Burger King, etc. Hundreds of Promos for Networks such as NBC, ABC, HBO, CBS, TNT, TBS, PBS, Bravo, ESPN, MTV, History Channel, A&E, etc. Over forty Audiobooks, many of which were on the NY Times Best Seller list, Movie trailers for over forty films including "The Eye", "Mirror Mask", "The Holy Land", "Alex & Emma", etc. Dozens of political spots, many for Grey Davis in his campaign for re-election as Governor of California, Over a thousand training, sales and promotional corporate narrations for companies such as Citibank, Unilever, The Gap, The New York Times, Nike, Barclay Bank, etc. And dozens of fun characters in the video game arena.
I attended the Univ of California at Berkeley and the Univ of Oregon; my major was physiological psychology. But upon arriving in New York City, I was bitten by the acting bug and spent the earliest part of my career doing theatre: Broadway, Off-B'way and Regional Theatres around the country. Film and Television followed. Then in 1990 I discovered the world of Voiceover and realized that I enjoy being in a sound studio as much as on a Broadway stage or in front of a camera.
