My voice is quite distinctive, recognizable, and extremely easy to decipher. I take great pride in using the English language correctly to communicate effectively, which means paying close attention to the pronunciation and elocution of a very large vocabulary.
I very seldom get a "What did he say?" response, unless the listener's hearing aid battery is dead. : )

I'm an experienced entertainer, having performed as a front man, lead vocalist and guitarist for the classic rock band "The Casuals" since 1963. In fact, we just completed a reunion concert in Okeechobee Florida. It's not unusual for rock bands to perform reunion concerts... but certainly not 53 years after the band was originally formed!
I've also performed with multiple other classic rock and country music bands, and now I continue to perform professionally as a musical duet with my wife, Karen. We are an award-winning duet called "The Mellow D's" with seven CD albums to our credit, and are honored to have been inducted into America's Old-Time Country Music Hall of Fame.
My wife loves live theater, and that has provided me with over 20 years of live acting experience in community theater and Christian drama groups.
I've also done a few radio commercials for local companies (all done gratis because my friend owns the radio station!).
And of course I've always been told that I have a wonderful voice, especially when broadcast over electronic media. (Frankly, that surprises me a little because what I hear when I speak is always much richer and fuller than what I hear coming back at me through speakers! But because it's not me that will be hiring voice talent, that difference is probably a good thing.)
So yes, I do have years and years of experience (and experiences! : )), but in the field of professional voice acting, I think I'd better create my profile as if I'm a complete "newbie".
I am a member of America's Old-Time Country Music Hall of Fame, and have received multiple awards and accolades from the Nebraska Country Music Foundation.
I am an Admiral in the Great Navy of the State of Nebraska. (Yes, I know, but it's true.)

Turnaround time is totally dependent upon the size of the job, of course. Anything less than a 60-second script should normally take no more than 24 hours. Lengthy scripts would of course require more time and attention.
The final objective of any voice acting project is to capture the listener's attention and convey the desired message in a pleasing, memorable, and complete manner.
My personal objective would be to provide a product that would fulfill those requirements completely to the client's satisfaction, in such a way that we all can enjoy the journey.
