Nick Josten has a warm, deep, gravelly voice that captures the listener's attention. His range reaches from the booming movie trailer voice to the welcoming guy-next-door voice. Nick's voice has been compared to the All-American archetypes like Sam Elliott, James Earl Jones, or Morgan Freeman.
As a former teacher, Nick knows how to patiently and calmly explain any information in a relaxed and friendly manner. As a librarian and information professional, he became comfortable using technical language from almost any field.
Nick's extensive experience in the theatre and with improv comedy means he can provide varying reads for your project. As a writer Nick cuts to the core meaning of the copy to give the best possible interpretation.
