Radio/TV/Web Commercials


I have over 20 years doing radio and TV commercial announcer and character voices, e-learning courses, web videos, video games, overdubs, podcast announcer VOs, telephone prompts, and audiobooks, both fiction and non-fiction. I'm an expert voice editor, having done so in the radio and TV production business for nearly 12 years. If you need your other VOs edited, I'd be glad to help you with that. I have nearly 40 years of stage and on-camera acting experience, playing just about every conceivable character, from the goofy, comedic guy to Satan himself!

Marlin May narrated my hybrid Irish American memoir, "Confessions of a Shanty Irishman." It is not an easy book to read aloud since there are many voices, some of them Irish, and the book has a lot of dialogue which can challenge any voice over talent. Mr. May's delivery was warm, engaging and straightforward. The accents were suggested, which works well for an audiobook, and he was very professional in making corrections and meeting deadlines. He is a fine, expressive voice over talent, quite versatile, and I am sure will bring many books to life.

Marlin's rich, gravelly voice was perfect for "The Agency," a saga of greed and betrayal that follows the evolution of show business from vaudeville to Vegas to the corporate intrigue of late-20th-century Hollywood. Added to that, his smooth professionalism made him a delight to work with as well.

Marlin was a joy to work with when he recorded my books for
He not only has a great commanding voice but his suggestions for pauses,
music and timing helped make each audiobook a gem.
