Michael's investment in his studio and related equipment means a clear, noise-free recording every time.
Michael's voice has been described as "Fatherly, like the World of Disney announcer from the 50's and 60's", calming, genuine, sincere, believable, relatable and educational. Michael also has a unique "growling voice" that conveys anger and a dark sense of foreboding along with a lighthearted "guy next door" conversational style in his wide range of immersive and compelling voices.
As a non-union voice over talent with an in-home studio and quick turn-around times, Michael can provide voices from sexy to sarcastic and from silly to sincere. Michael also offers full production services for some projects along with copywriting and editing.
