About Michael Ursu

Completed over 130 JOBS on Voices!

My voice has been featured in commercials [Nerf, GMC, Discord, Toyota], e-learning [Walmart, CVS], video games, podcasts, films, audio dramas, AND on the radio. Conversational, authentic, natural, casual, and bold. I can get real fun and cartoony as well!

Aside from VO, I'm a SAG-eligible actor and music composer [B.A. Occidental College]. Produce my own songs and write for commercials and films. Also well versed in sound engineering. The whole package!

Service Overview

Voice Over

When you hire me, you'll get high quality audio recordings, lightning fast response + delivery time, and clear and concise communication. I've got professional grade gear and a professional grade attitude. I also love what I do, and I think you'll love it too!

Whether it's me providing you three solid yet distinctly different takes on my own, or us having a live-directed phone/Zoom/Source Connect session, I guarantee you'll be pleased with the results. There's a reason I have repeat clients, and there's also a reason I've worked with brands like Toyota, Nerf, Walmart, GMC, Discord, Keystone Light, CVS.. the list goes on.

Aside from voice-over, I'm a SAG-eligible actor whose been doing commercial/print work for 5 years now, having worked with clients like McDonalds, Crypto dot com, Sparkling Ice, Fender, and Yamaha. I'm also a multi-instrumentalist and composer, having scored shorts, films, and commercials, as well as playing in a touring rock band for 3 years.
