There's a reason I have a perfect 5-star rating here. Hire me and find out why! I've been a secret-agent space werewolf, military leaders, sinister aliens, and young warriors in Richard L. Sanders' "Phoenix Conspiracy" Audiobooks. I've been a disgruntled cop battling the zombie hordes in the hit game "Contagion". I've also breathed life into countless mind-numbing medical and technical training videos. I’ve played at the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media circles as a musician, podcaster, and freelance producer. I own my own studio and have been producing my own material for over seven years now. I tend to experiment with my sound a lot, but unless I'm screaming or snoring people tell me they love my voice. I’ll take their word for it, but you can find out for yourself by listening to the samples or contacting me. All I know is that I have a voice that can do many things, most of which involves talking. My specialties are: Intense promo reads (movie trailer, sports commercial, etc.) Audiobook narration (with or without character voices) Highly technical reads (I can manage convoluted polysyllables from medical or technological training copy) Sarcastic, Denis Leary-esque reads

Mark Shaefer for Job #155350 Voices - Battleship USS IOWA This project was very time demanding. A long script approval process caused this one to last well beyond what we are usually accustomed to but Matthew was very patient and very cooperative. The staggered delivery of scripts required Matthew's time flexibility and availability and he was always able to deliver as needed. Audio quality is top notch and file delivery is very organized. We will be very happy to work with Matthew again and seeing how well he manages a project as complex and unorthodox as this one, we can confidently say he will absolutely rock anything else.
