About

I'm an experienced voice-over artist, award-winning screen and theater actor and published writer. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I now live in Houston, Texas. I'm a former high school history teacher and retired U.S. Army soldier who served as a military broadcast journalist and public affairs supervisor. As a screen actor, I have completed over 65 projects within my first three years of acting professionally. Add up all of those experiences, and you'll see that people have been paying me to talk for over 30 years - and counting! I have honed my voice-over abilities through all of these jobs, especially my two decades as a broadcaster, and with training from Such A Voice, LLC. My voice is described as friendly, intelligent and versatile and I have a professional voice-over studio in my home. I'm well-experienced and well-grounded in the fundamentals of voice-over work, both technically and artistically, but I also love to stretch as an artist. I'm always looking for new opportunities and even greater challenges. I really hope we can work together!

Voice Over Testimonials

“We had a great experience working with Dave for a project that depended heavily on voice over performance. He took direction well, but also had a firm sense of what we wanted and came in prepared.

Owen Schwartzbard, Edwards Media

Dave McClain is a man of many talents and voice acting is in fact one of them. He took direction with ease and improved lines when he thought it was necessary. He is a great asset to have on any production you are creating.

Sakibul Neeloy, film director and producer

“I worked with Dave when he was starting his broadcast career in the Army. His articulate voice overs and on-camera work were always professional. He continues to deliver high-quality products with a great attitude.

Jeanette Perez, former U.S. Army Public Affairs supervisor
