While relatively new to professional voiceovers, I have been actually performing voiceovers for plays and YouTube videos for close to 10 years. My vocal talents range from Teens to Adult/Senior with some character voices thrown in for good measure! Vocal ranges from mimicry of known voice artists (e.g. Mel Blanc, Ted Cassidy, Don LaFontaine, Peter Cullen) to some celebrities (Barry White, James Earl Jones,Bee Gees, Eddie Murphy, Adam West)

Mark Summers for Job #54345 Eddie Murphy Sound-alike Acceptable work was produced in a good turnaround time. Good communication with an understanding of the different approaches needed for the voice samples. We'll do business again, for sure!! Thank you.Apr 25, 2012
Philip Ramage for Job #29231 A very brief resume Rod,
It's nice and clear and the Scottish "lilt" is about right. My only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the rate of the voice-over is a little bit slow. It could have been spoken a little bit more quickly, as one would in normal conversation, but I'll accept it as is.
