CHECK OUT MY PODCAST FOR MY TOP 10 TIPS FOR SUCCESSFULLY GETTING STARTED ON VOICES.COM!!!
http://podcasts.voices.com/voiceoverexperts/2014/07/voice_over_experts_episode_163.html

Extremely versatile American English voice, age range 20-55, characters as well as a very commercial and current voice. Baritone/tenor timbre with impressive 4-octave range for high cartoon tones also; always professional and prompt. Typical "guy-next-door" mid-range, with great range for those needing a deep voice as well. I excel at reading scripts needing a conversational style. Perfect for young adult and middle age scripts, as well as a raspy, gritty senior voice. Strengths include: narration, explainer videos, whiteboard animation, corporate training, e-learning, characters, humor, witty, and conversational. I also book a lot of work in animation, video games, and projects needing cowboy, country, folksy, etc. I love to create original voices, but I am also able to imitate some celebrities. Just give me somebody and I'll work something up for you.

I excel at the following vocal types: Believable, Conversational, Friendly, Professional, Confident, Authoritative, Informative, Corporate, Animated, Natural, Announcer, Educational, Upbeat, Attractive, Warm, Genuine, Caring, Narrator, Knowledgeable, Sincere, Calming, High Energy, Amusing, Storyteller, Deep, and Motivational.

"William did a great job on our project. We had a very specific vision for the voice over and he went above and beyond to make sure we got what we needed. I'll add that the recorded audio sounded good too. I add this point because the quality of recorded audio can vary greatly. The performance and the quality of the audio go hand in hand."

"I was very pleased with William's performance. He has that rare talent to sound 'natural' as if he is really telling you something instead of reading it, the way your friends would talk to you.
As for working with him, he's fast and the files he delivers are of high technical quality, which hardly need mastering."
