About

Looking for a dynamic voice talent with great range? Someone who is easy to work with, takes direction and delivers broadcast-quality recordings on time? Look no further - that's me!

My signature sound is casual and conversational, like the guy next door, but range goes all the way to announcer and Voice-of-God. I do promotional spots, instructional videos and tutorials, podcast bumpers and IVRS.

Every company and organization has a story to tell. Let's team up and tell yours!

Senior Manager, Communications

I led corporate communications and affairs for Jeppesen, a significant company in aviation. This provides an advantage because I have deep experience in developing communication strategies and plans, which only enhances my voice over work, because I have a firm grasp of what a business needs to accomplish to be successful.

Jeff Cochran

When starting my Podcast, I knew that I wanted a polished Intro and Outro completed by someone that was a professional voice-over artist. As soon as I found Mike Pound with Mike at the Mike, I knew I had my person!
Mike sets the bar high for professionalism, confidence in recording, and always reliable.
I could not have thought of a better voice-over artist to provide the intro/outro for my podcast!!

Kelly Goering Founder, Evolving Smart

Mike on the Mic—such an appropriate business name for #Pound. I worked for Mike Pound at Jeppesen/Boeing for 8 years and our most loyal, favorite customers always knew Mike as the “Voice of Jeppesen.” As a senior manager of communications, Mike not only led the communications strategy for our top aviation company, he also collaborated with the marketing of our industry-leading service and products. From video training to webinars to voice-overs and even the bi-lingual customer service answering system, Mike made himself available to be “the voice,” due to his talent for speaking in a deep, commanding voice that never wavered to indecision or panic—really important in the aviation industry. When you hear his voice, you trust him.

What impressed me most was not that he made sure he was a communications expert about what he was talking about and what he “narrated” at any given time but that he knew his audience and knew what and when and how it needed to be said. That is true voice talent.

I miss working for Mike and his tempered, cadenced strategic leadership. And I admire that he turned his passion of “messaging” to customers and clients in a corporate world into a voice over career.

You'd do well to listen to him!
