Born & raised in Western Michigan, I am a "true" native speaker of "broadcast" English. I find it amusing that my friends - and even my family - often do not realize they are listening to my voice when they hear it. That's because of my radio and television (announcer) experience, where I learned to say and feel the copy, not just read it.
My voice appears on many Voice Processing Systems, where my prompts are preferred because the timing and consistency allow multiple prompts to be put together in a convincing and believable sentence. How this applies to traditional voice-over work is that, even if additional copy is read years after the original, the sound will be consistent. If you're developing software, such as video games or educational programs, elemental phrases can be played back-to-back and can still sound like a fluent sentence. Add random selection of multiple readings of the same phrases, and your users won't be bored by replays of identical intonations!
Christian Ministries are important to me, so if you're a bona fide church or other Christian organization, and if your project speaks to me, I will be happy to provide excellent service at extremely favorable rates.
One more thing - I have a Filipino wife who helps me make sure my Filipino/Tagalog voice work sounds perfect.

Worked as Top 40 DJ, Talk Radio host, and have recorded thousands of Voice Processing (Automated Attendant, Voice Mail) prompts, Message-On-Hold, and PABX announcements. Since my radio days, I still do typical "promotional announcements" as well.
TESOL Certified (That means I am a certified English teacher for students who speak another language as their primary means of communication), Bachelor in Computer Science
Computer & Software
Windows based, excellent processing speed (A MicroSoft tech recently told me it was the ''Best I've ever seen!'') - Adobe Creative Suite CS6
5.1 Surround Editing capability
Email, Download from Amazon Server for larger files (MP3, WAV, etc.), CD/DVD if required
24 Hrs typical, faster if necessary
Copy editing, straight/dramatic read with alternative versions if I think you might appreciate the suggestion ;)
I can also add voice over to your video if you desire, although that takes a bit longer than the 24 hours!
Working with Steve has been great. We get the sound files needed very quickly and he even takes the time to do multiple takes which we can choose from. He has a confident and authoritative voice which can be quite emotive when the need arises. The best part is that his voice and rendition of material gives an air of quality and reliability to our announcements.Word for the World Christian Fellowship
