Highlights

With his warm, sensitive, friendly baritone voice, Joe "Zunardo" Jankowski opened JoeKat Voice-over LLC for business in June 2016, quickly establishing a reputation as a reliable voice actor who delivers professional results in a timely manner. Based in the Columbus/central Ohio area, Joe "Zunardo" uses the Harlan Hogan VO-1 microphone, running through an Aphex Channel pre-amp and a Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 interface. He works in a dedicated studio room built with insulated walls and ceiling and carpeted floor, greatly reducing outside noise. The inside walls of the studio are covered with Auralex acoustic foam tiles, which allows him to produce excellent audio quality, free of echoes.

Joe began developing his natural vocal skills with over 25 years experience as a public speaker, special-events emcee, and classroom facilitator for the U.S. Postal Service, where he retired in 2016. In August that year, Joe completed a rigorous 22-week Voiceover Pro training program with legendary coach Ron Allan at his Big Voice Productions studio in Gahanna OH.. Since then Joe has voiced over 20 commercials for TV, radio, and Internet broadcast, and has been hired to voice eLearning courses and on-hold phone messaging for several companies.

Joe takes direction well, providing reads with the following feels: professional, middle-aged, senior, friendly, normal, corporate, conversational, powerful, neutral, charismatic, heartfelt, dominant, uplifting, informative and informational, approachable, inspiring, business man, light-hearted, gritty, warm, authoritative, natural, articulate, authentic, clear, narrator, blue collar trucker, confident, and everyman. He can also provide a voice in the style of iconic characters for animation or for holiday or seasonal spots, and provides an American accent, a General American accent, and can also do a German accent or Irish accent, or general European accent.

He recently spent 5 months as a weathercaster on RadioForecastNetwork.com, doing daily forecasts for over 20 radio stations in the U.S, and still fills in when needed. He's currently a volunteer reader with the VoiceCorps.org reading service for the blind, recording a weekly one-hour program for the past 3 years.

in addition, Joe is a well-known public-address announcer in the central Ohio area for college and high school sports, with over 21 years experience. He has worked the microphone for several NJCAA college tournaments events in men's and women's basketball and women's softball, a Columbus City league high school men's basketball championship, and one OHSAA state semi-final football contest.
