Gritty: Instantly recognizable, once heard. You either love it or you hate it, but you never forget it. As well as an industry recognized perfectionist in 'direction' of others and production, I can pretty well carry off most requirements myself.
Often used for station stings; perfect deepish cinema trails; comedy; DVD docs: controlled educational documentaries. I can quite easily change my voice and accent on the fly and perform most styles from warm to blaring rock promos. Whatever accent or how perfect, good ears still know it is me. Which is a double edged sword.

I resemble my reputation.
As well as self voicing client's requirements on request, daily I produce and direct voices in any other language, but mostly English and Arabic, live or linking by ISDN or Audio TX over IP. (It is a gross amateur myth that different languages require different direction in a commercial sense).
My entire existence is voice and studio production of everything from catchy music jingles, SFX, commercial and documentaries in my own commercial facility.
The tool is the voice and the way it performs.
I have personally voiced commercials for almost every corporate name you might think of. Promos; TV; radio; long story corporate DVDs and a fair amount of comedy acting when time permits.
Good solid scripts, written for voice are equally important but few clients understand that, thus present clichéd ProNoun virus ('WE' - 'US' - 'OUR') infected babble, which many voices might record in silent protest, despite it potentially impairing their performance through no fault of theirs'. Thus, for perfection, I sometimes might respectfully suggest you change a word or the flow slightly without detracting the essence.
Like a precision lock, you'll hear and deeply feel it, when it clicks, then you know 'it is right'! If it isn't I will not present the job.
Started as a ship's Disc Jockey while serving in the Royal Navy and even did link-ups with BBC Radio. On leaving the Navy in the 70's I continued as a performing DJ and producer, breaking off for university and studying electronics/communications.

I don't know what this bit means. I know I have dozens of endorsements on Linkedin from people who I have genuinely worked with or know me by media. (Not sure I agree with the casual tick a box past time on Linkedin, but so far, all the endorsements I have received are pretty kosher as far as I can assess.Admaze Media WLL
