Highlights

I approach your script - whether a commercial, training or educational video, or video game character - as a storyteller in the tradition of Garrison Keillor and Paul Harvey: I aim to get to heart of your message.
Twenty-some years ago I left the acting profession to raise a family. We live on a 3-acre spot near the woods. I record in a small studio next to the house with an isolation booth I built myself.
As a Native North American English speaker, I can offer you expressive and clear diction, pronunciation and enunciation. As a boy I lived in Germany and traveled in Europe & U.K. and finished schooling in the heart of the Mid-West, near Kansas City, Missouri. These experiences trained my ear for accents and inflections. I'm a non-union voice over performer with university, conservatory, & professional acting experience.

"Jim was absolutely amazing to work with! He 'got' the concept immediately and delivered a spot-on voice-over with the perfect inflection and impression we wanted. I cannot recommend highly enough, and I can hardly wait to find more projects to work with Jim again!" -- Risa Demasi, Grassland Oregon

"Outstanding! Just what we wanted for this project from Jim. His voice was perfect for our character voice and would highly recommend him. Very fast turn around time from start to finish." -- Jennifer Pickard-Bostrom, Green Community School

"Jim was very easy to work with. He not only had the talent to do the job we needed, but we wound up getting his end of the project ahead of the deadline. Very professional and provides exactly what we needed at a better quality than several of the people we had auditioned." -- Tejah Pownall

Service Description

You'll find my voice to be like the guy next door, your next door neighbor, explaining how to fix a lawn mower, like a professor from your favorite class, and like a dad telling the kids to "keep it down back there!"

But don't forget that I'm classically trained, so if you need more sophistication, I can do that too.

What most clients ask for is neutral American English without accent.

I can also give you

Western: cowboy
MidWest: slight or deep Ozark hillbilly
Southern: slight or genteel
Transatlantic: like old-time movies

In addition, because of my years of experience in technology, I'm at ease with technical instruction, business presentation, corporate video, white board video, and other types of explainer video. I've read a lot of it and learned how to make it interesting with my voice. If you need to make your dry tech training come alive...
