My name is Jon Menefee and I've been doing professional voice over for the past 7 years.
I've got a knack for hitting the right timing, tone and inflection in scripts as I've been a video editor for nearly 10 years and know what editors and engineers are looking for. I've been on both sides of the mic, giving and taking direction, which gives me another slight edge on reading voice over.
I've got a pretty wide range of emotions and tones I can hit but my MAIN voice is "Hip, mid-20s guy". I've also got a few characters up my sleeve and a pretty solid Australian accent (on top of my American one) but my forte is definitely narration.

I started doing voice over nearly 7 years when I was editing commercials and needed temp narration.
Over time, I fine tuned my skill (while working with and learning from top name voice actors) and began "winning" the voice work over the auditioned talent! After that, I landed many sessions in the booth and began to take it more seriously by taking some coaching and acting lessons as well.
My major area of expertise is narrations for commercials and trailers. I've done over 40 trailers and national tv commercials in the past 6 years. Considering this hasn't been my full time job, that's a pretty decent amount.
I studied video production at the Art Institute of California in 2002, where I graduated and later became Sr Editor of a major advertising agency. This allowed me to test out my voice skills constantly with many different project types.
