Philip is american, but has has lived in Europe for thirty years, working in various aspects of media and advertising, and his voice has been chosen to represent many internationally recognised brands. His voice is deep and masculine in tone, yet still warm, personable and friendly, as though speaking to guests in his home.
His first and primary consideration, is being selective about the types of entities and advertising he lends his voice to, choosing only those he feels to be ethical goods and services, products that better people's lives, or long recognised, traditional brands.
He's also an accomplished singer and musician, giving him an experienced and seasoned voice that sound engineers and ad account directors always enjoy working with. In a sea of aggressive, north american male deejay voices, Philip's delivery is honest, believable and personable.
Although he does a darn good north american deejay when asked.

"Life is my teacher. I left home at 16 and have traveled and lived in Europe for 30 years. The people I have met and the places I have been have all added to my spectrum of awareness and to my vocal range, while always remaining aware of and in touch with my roots as an american."

Please not that Philip lives in Greece, and ideal times to contact him are business morning hours in North America - which is afternoon in the Mediterranean. Philip can then prepare your piece for your next morning's review. Philip is also happy to work via Skype, with early morning until mid afternoon's North American time being optional - philiplavere is his Skype ID
Philip is great to work with, not only for his talent as a voice actor, but because his experience and technical engineering skills mean that we are hiring three people in one. There is no need to book a studio, or pay a sound engineer - which is a big plus for our budget!Premium Media, Athens
Byron Nikolopoulos, Producer - Director
We always enjoyed having Philip come and record in our studios, so will miss him now that he's pursuing his career on the web. He was easy to work with, and always willing to try what we suggested, meaning we could always deliver what the clients wanted, and often times more.Power Music Studios Athens

Philip is very flexible, easy to work with, and takes direction easily. He has often made valuable suggestions about the copy we were working on, that improved the resulting ad piece. Definitely a great asset to any project, and a voice to die for!Panache Events, Toronto
