Born in Detroit, Jonathan Lockwood cultivated his talent for voicework over a fifteen year career in radio, (but please don’t hold that against him!) He was also a writer and producer, winning a boatload of creative awards, most notably a National Gold ADDY and the $20,000 Radio Mercury Award. (Hear them on the Demos page of his website.)
This led to the opening of The Lockwood Agency, an advertising and creative agency originally based in Flint, Michigan, but later Los Angeles and Phoenix.
While Jonathan still takes on the occasional creative project, the majority of his time is spent on voiceovers and narrations from his home studio in the magnificent high desert, central Mexican town of San Miguel de Allendé.

As a fulltime voice talent, I am available anytime for quick turnaround. 24 hours no problem.
As someone who himself hires Voice Talent for a variety of projects, I've concluded that the thing we producers are usually looking for...is a good actor. Someone who can actually "hear" you when you tell them what you're looking for.
A good voice is good. A voice that can give you what you're looking for is, well...worth it.
