I have a naturally warm and deep voice. I can be very authoritative and am often told “You have a very believable voice” My voice also has some uniqueness to it. Consequently, people know who they are talking to quickly if I’ve spoken to them before. I constantly get the remark “I know that voice”.
I can also be very conversational, and have done many warm and friendly “one person to another” narrations. I announced on a major Los Angeles based FM radio station at one time and can adlib from that experience.
Recently many of my bookings have been that of an older gritty voice for westerns, truckers, and train engineers.
Lastly, I can put a dramatic edge to the read that cuts through background audio which has helped me book trailers and promos.
I am not the least bit “set in my ways” and always welcome direction from clients, and will re-record a script until everyone involved it happy with the final read.
I have over 25 years of background in the audio industry from esoteric equipment to speaker design. Many of my interests revolve around technology so I’m very much at ease with industrial or medical copy.
