For big jobs, my specialty is self-help or motivational audio books. I have completed three audio books to this point, and while I have done voice mail systems, readings for ESL classes, and a variety of other recordings, audio books are what I enjoy most. When not involved in recording an audio book, I like to do instructional audio materials for business or education. These tend to be much shorter, and I can use them to fill in the gaps. I do not apply for these jobs while working on an audio book. Please note that when I send audio files, they are edited, polished, and ready to publish. I should also note here that, although I now live in Ecuador, English is my native language. However, I do speak Spanish moderately well, and can read it very clearly, albeit not with a native accent. Natives say that my Spanish is very easy to understand.
Depending on the script and the need, I can sound authoritative, guy-next-door, friendly, serious, and believable. I have a strong scientific and technical background, and can read technical material in a way that is easy to understand. If the script is right, I can have a lot of fun with a hillbilly accent!

In a professional sense, I have only about a year of experience doing voice work, but I have decades of experience making presentations at work and speaking as a lay minister at church. I recently retired as a civil engineer, and decided that it was time to turn my hobby into a second career.
I first spent several months learning the fundamentals of audio recording and editing on my computer, and in the last eight months I have completed three audio books, all in the self-help field, as well as several other smaller jobs.
The first book I completed was "Massive Muscle Building - Your Ultimate Guide to Massive Muscle Growth".
The second was "Visualfestation - How to Visualize and Manifest the Life of Your Dreams!"
The third was "The Most Complete Student Success System - Better Grades in Just 30 Days"
In all cases, I have received top-notch feedback, both for my reading, and for being prompt and easy to work with.

Audio books, 4-5 hours of finished audio (ready to publish) per week. Jobs of 3000 word or less in 24 hours.
I can turn your book into an impressive and enjoyable audio book. With the profusion of MP3 players, there are millions of people who would rather listen to your book than read it, assuming it is "read" in a manner that is easy to understand and follow.
Not only do I read it, I edit and polish it up so that the audio files I record are ready to be published. And if you find anything in the files, errors, background noise, or anything else that you are not satisfied with, I will fix it cheerfully and promptly, at no additional charge. My top priority is that you be delighted!
Gordon is a true professional to work with! He voiced-over my e-book exactly as I specified it and his communication as well as work delivery was very fast. Will definitely hire him again for future projects!Adi Crnalic - Author of Massive Muscle Building - Your Ultimate Guide to Maximum Muscle Growth
I cannot recommend Gordon enough. He did an exceptional job with narrating and recording my audio book. Gordon is much more than just a narrator, he is also an excellent professional proof reader. Gordon caught five "missing" words in my final manuscript after it had already been proof read several times by my editor. Gordon was a pleasure to work with, and he turned the project around ahead of schedule. I will never forget the first time I listened to my own book being narrated by Gordon, it was amazing and I knew that I was very fortunate to have found him.Pete Adams - Author of Visualfestation - How to Visualize and Manifest the Life of Your Dreams
We were very pleased working with Gordon. He was very professional, flexible, responsive, and had the expertise to produce a quality product on time. He was very open to any feedback. He was self directed and did an excellent job. Any issues he found in our source material, he quickly noted for us to make corrections. He caught things other reviewers didn't - he has a very sharp eye. We would certainly work with him again, and highly recommend him to others. He was great to work with and his output was excellent.Rick Kamal - Producer of The Most Complete Student Success System
