Strong, smooth, soothing, these are just some of the S words that describe but one of Jonathan Schwimmer's voices. Grabbed by the arm and commanded to 'record that voice' one too many times, Jon's performance history is as varied as his voices.
Jon's extensive performance background started at the Second City Chicago, training for improv and using his voice to please audiences. Eventually he nabbed a disc jockey spot for Wilmette's 88.1 WNTH where he beamed into North Chicago's homes every Wednesday. 'Vini, Vidi, Vici' he said as he walked off to college and right on to the set of Out on a Limb, Columbia College's Emmy Nominated sketch comedy show. Performing both on-camera and in the sound booth, Jon garnered a reputation as both a versatile voice and painfully funny actor.
The reputation spread that soon after he was given his own TV show, a travel show to explore Chicago's streets and reveal it's offerings. Next, live TV came into the fold and Jon found himself sitting in the anchor's seat for Columbia College's live TV/Webast coverage of Manifest, a year end celebration.
And while all of this was going on, Jon was giving presentations on Apple Computer's software and hardware to folks of all types at Apple's flagship store in Chicago on the Magnificent Mile.
A dedicated, versatile worker, Jon can provide you with precisely what you'll need: a young, earnest voice actor with a varied background who can give you the voice that you want and work with you to make your project exactly as you want it. Send an email about your next project now!
