About Michael Stout

20 years of advertising writing, casting, acting, and producing gives me a unique ability to deliver professional voice results in almost any style. My timing comes from producing hundreds of radio and TV ads. I also have a passion for storytelling and narration. My raspy voice has a gravitas that sets me apart from most of the other voices in the market. And my genuine, down-to-earth attitude and style make me relatable to a broad range of audiences. I know the business, the timing, and the demands to deliver the right performance in the right time and tone.
