As I mentioned before I have spent much of my life between Canada and The Caribbean, and my ability to switch on and off accents from across the Caribbean and also have a generally neutral accent has worked to my benefit. I have also been able to reproduce other international accents fairly easily, I generally can make my English sound like I have a hint of an accent from almost anywhere in the world. While no one from Australia will cast me as the next Crocodile Dundee, I can effectively make people believe I originally came from some other country. My neutral accent is clear and my diction is perfectly understandable, and with proper direction I can go from Sedated to Hype as required. I can work with or without direction, but I generally work best with a clear idea of the project and the purpose behind it.

I have done just a couple VO projects, voicing corporate videos for an insurance company, as well as some ads and read for reports on the radio on an ad hoc basis. I get a call every couple of months for my accent work, because having spent many years in between Canada and the Caribbean, I have, among other things, a variable Caribbean accent, that can be turned up or down (or off) depending on the clients requirements. My regular speaking voice is pretty neutral accent wise, and I can do other accents fairly easily.
At one point I was involved in a radio station which had me doing pretty much every job imaginable, including voicing, production, writing etc. My regular day job is in AV production for corporate events, so my background includes all aspects of audio, lighting, video staging etc. generally as the Technical Director, but I can wear pretty much every hat in the business to varying degrees.
Having a production background, I own a great variety of stage mics as well as a couple of studio mics. Favourites would be the Sennheiser 935 and Shure Beta 87a for stage work and the Rode NT1A for studio.
Computer & Software
I have both Mac Pros and hyped up PCs that I use for Audio and Video work along with the full suite of Adobe Creative products, including Audition CC.
I have access to a wide variety of production gear.
Internet or FedEx... pretty much anything you need any where in the world is possible.
Varies greatly on the project of course, but most work should be within a matter of days, sooner if required.
If you are looking for a versatile voice, both in accent and register, who is comfortable with technical and medical terms, does his research and works exceptionally well with direction, then I would certainly be an asset to your project.
Voice Over Clients
While I have had some experience in this area, I am new to doing this as another profession. The companies or events I have worked for would not register with most people as they were very local. I hope to add some know names to this list shortly.
