D. Edward Curtis

Warm, pure, smooth and friendly lower register baritone.

Voice Description

My number one goal is to make sure you are happy with any work I do. I am completely open and receptive to direction and fully believe that your content is the star and key component. I try very hard to ensure the listener feels I am speaking directly with them, personally, and not talking AT them. Employing Ethos, Logos, and Pathos, I strive to make the script a part of me, and I, it.

My voice has been described as a warm, deep baritone/bass. I consider it very smooth and silky, but can be rough and a bit raspy if requested. For the most part, I have no discernible accent but as a lifelong resident of the Southern US, I can employ an authentic southern accent. My voice lends its self well to movie trailers, sports teasers, professional, technical narration/instruction, audiobooks, and documentaries.

My Voice Experience

Please don't be deceived by a relative lack of experience on my part. The fact that I am fairly new to the business may well be one of my most attractive attributes. Fresh and new very often catches more attention than the same stale voice one hears every day, associated with untold other entities. After all, when someone hears the voice of *your* project for the first time, don't you want them to hear *your* voice?".

My Training

I have degrees in
Medical Laboratory Technology;
Criminal Justice;
Computer Science;

I work with an accomplished theatrical director and acting/voice coach regularly.

Additional Skills

My diverse education affords me the ability to handle complex, technical, medical, legal and otherwise demanding scripts well. I have Pro Tools and Izotope production software and am able to record and edit as needed. I have a penchant for interacting with people and I believe that makes me easy to work with, as I accept direction and constructive criticism well. I have worked as an editor for a couple of local papers and as such am able to assist in composing/proofing scripts if asked. But I believe my greatest skill is the ability to get "inside" the material and convey with emotion and relaxed ease, the subtle nuances the author is wanting to convey, and in a way that resonates with the listener as honest and heart-felt and from personal experience.
