Voice Over Testimonials

Ed is a tremendously versatile and gifted voice talent and actor. Apart from his incredible range, he also shines as a generous and inclusive person who's helped me immeasurably. Ed gave me a push to develop my voice-over skills which has been a source of growth and reward. Listening to Ed for years is an inspiration to tear thru the envelope and forge beyond the mundane to tap the heights of creativity. He makes it look effortless, like Eric Clapton playing guitar, but never underestimate his capacity for hard work. Delineating a character is the key to Ed's endless ability to entertain extemporaneously. But where others read it off the page, Ed is also a captivating writer who has that rare ability to tell any story, effortlessly and with brilliance so many aspire to but never achieve.

Trudi Daniels Drew & Mike Podcast, Ed worked with Trudi in the same group.

We use Ed for numerous radio spots for our clients. He is extremely talented and always a pleasure to work with. I'm impressed with his range of characters and voices, which makes him a very easy choice to hire. I would absolutely recommend working with Ed on any voice talent needs.

Ashley Edwards Marketing Director at Beacon Hill at Eastgate Greater Detroit Area

It is common knowledge that Ed is exceptionally creative and has mastered thousands of voices but did you know he is extremely prompt? In the 15+ years that I have worked with Ed on voice over sessions he has always shown up early and prepared.

Skill Overview

Audio Mastering

Video Game Narration, many different authentic dialects.

Video Game Characters and barks.

Impressionist with a vast repertoire

Real Person reads for retail. I'm an actual Voice Actor, not a Deejay. My credits include Film, Television and Stage so I scale the performance to the end user audience you are seeking to reach. IMdB credits and a SAG-Aftra card that is always current. Radio spots without the radio announcer sound. Unless, you need that. Music and Voice? I got you. Though I don't currently have access to a licensed library, but there are tracks available online for an additional fee. I have a good ear and can choose to match the read.

Imaging Vox Trax only.

Sound Matching is my specialty. If you have a read that you seek, but don't know who it is, or can't afford, I can approximate the way I have specialized in doing for nationally syndicated Sketch Comedy productions for years.

ADR is also in my skillset.
