Trained theatre actor with an emphasis in dialects, trained in commercial voice acting at Kalmenson & Kalmenson, official voice of Digital Ideas, LLC (Marketing & Media company based out of Las Vegas, NV), currently the voice of all Ventura County Community College District radio spots.
As a musician, and first a singer, I am trained to be very versatile with my voice. From cutesy "bubble voices" to blood-curdling screams, along with my natural voice (highlighted in my Commercial Demo), my range is extremely wide.

Recordings can be done at my home studio for quickest turn around time. These will be done on a Blue Yeti Pro USB Mic. If you desire studio time, I have access to various professional studios in the area, and can use these facilities for a small fee. I will always supply you with a free sample recording from my Yeti Pro so you can decide if the quality is satisfactory.
During the recording you may listen over the phone - feel free to give me directions, or just tell me what you like and don't like. I can also do the recordings on my own, which then I will give you 3 to 4 different takes.
Most jobs can be done within a 24 hour time period, however booking studio time does sometimes require a bit of extra time. The final files can be delivered however you like, in whatever format you need.
"Working with Jacob has been great. He quickly grasps the style we want, and is quick and professional in producing the excellent quality voiceovers we need. Jacob takes the time to deliver extra takes which is tremendously helpful. His audio and video editing skills have also come in handy. We have used him for years, and quite frankly, he is irreplaceable. Highly recommended A+++"Digital Ideas, LLC
