About

I'm tired of hearing it, what a great vocal tone I have, how authentic my New York accent is and how I could make money with my Lothario like voice. Time to put their money where my mouth is. You gotta eat, right? Yeah, me too, and this New York rent is breakin' my balls. So I got the Blue Yeti microphone and I record stuff for friends on an old version of Adobe Audition or the windows recording software that gives me multiple file format output options. You see, ten years ago I used to DJ on a shoutcast radio station with my own rock and roll show and it was ball. As a goof, I'd do space news for the online video game the radio station was based on. That's when it started. The fans telling me I should be on the radio and what a beautiful voice you have and you should be an announcer and oh and oh... So I'm workin' phone support for a tech company. For ten years I keep hearing this, not on every call, but a lot of calls, more than once a week. Sometimes women telling me what a damn smooth, sexy voice I have or a guy tellin' me my voice is so this or that (commanding, assuring, authoritative, blah, blah). Ten years I'm hearing this over and over and over, week after week. To put me over the top, yesterday this one lady tells me, Damn, I'd listen to you read the back of a cereal box just to hear more of your voice! Of course, this pisses off my wife and yet, begs the question. Why not? I'm just like everyone else trying to pay the bills and get ahead so I can own my own house someday. Screw it, I'm doin' this voice acting thing. Nobody needs to see my ugly mug and maybe I can make enough to get a freakin' house already and quit this renting crap. If I get lucky, I get to be a voice on some movie or show that makes it big. So that's that and that's pretty much all I wanna say about myself. Oh yeah, I like my privacy.

Service Overview

Voice Over

I live in Queens now, but I'm Brooklyn born and bred. I got a natural Brooklyn accent for anyone who needs an authentic voice for their production or project. I'm the real deal. I do a real nice newsy, announcer voice if you want that too. I'm Tank Rollins for FNN and this is what's happening in your Universe! And the voice, narrating the About section titles, yeah, that's me. If you need an English accent, I do that one real good, too. I been hanging out in Irish bars since I was 14 (I was tall for my age) and listening to their BBC stuff on PBS Channel 13 since I was in diapers watching Sesame Street, so I can do that high brow accent and the cockney. Even a little Irish and Scottish is known to fall outta my mouth when I've had a few. Anyway, send me a script and if its not three miles long, you'll get it back in two days or less, as per my stated availability. I work as fast as possible and can send you RAW wave files, MP3. Tell me what format you need, I'll get your tracks in that format. You want to record live on Skype? I'll do that too. My wife does a great Marilyn Monroe and loves reading sexy stuff out loud. Lemme tell ya, I love it too.
Anything I won't do? Politics. I don't want nothing to do with that toxic crap. I just want to do fun stuff and nothing else, you got it?
