Warm Deep Business-like neutral

Voice Description

Typical speaking style is deep and powerful though warm and easy to listen to. It is well suited to corporate style presentations of which I have had a lot of experience (though not as a voice over and more in person for the companies I have worked for).

My voice has been described as beautiful by strangers. There was one time this was said by a random taxi driver in South Korea who obviously could not understand English and just heard me speak.
He commented to my Korean colleagues. Probably tells me I could go well as an English speaker in a non English speaking country advertisement.

This "beautiful" description was also expressed by a teacher in a public speaking course I attended.

Another funny story was more recent when an Australian police office pulled me over for a random alcohol check. After I counted to 10 into his measuring device he asked me whether I was on radio. I thought he was asking me whether I was on the phone while driving which is illegal. I realised instead that he was referring to my speaking tone. So I guess it could be expressed as radio like also.

Female acquaintances have also described my voice as sexy.

My Home Base

, Australia

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I can do corporate/ executive style voices.

I can move from my normal neutral style into a more deep Aussie accent if needed.

I actually grew up in western Sydney with a strong australian accent however having worked in Asia for many years I needed to become more neutral for their understanding.
This has become more the way I always speak now as I have continued my business career. Though with close family I do revert to my native accent.

My Voice Experience

My experience in voice is through having performed extensively as a corporate presenter in the sales and business development roles I have had in business. This has been in both large seminars to smaller presentations.
I will be honest that I have not done any actual recorded voice overs although I am hoping for the opportunity to do this.
One thing that may help me is that I have had a long association with music as a songwriter and recording musician. I do have an extensive Pro Tools HD based studio at home where I regularly record music and sing.
I would say my singing voice is not that good and people are surprised at how well I speak compared to how poorly I sing.
The key point is that I am used to having to sing parts to fixed verses and chorus sections which would translate to voice over work where you have a finite time to lay down a track.

My Training

Bachelor of Commerce - Economics

Associate Diploma in Electrical Engineering

Rogen Public Speaking certified

Musician and songwriter for 30 years

Private recording and mixing engineer

My Studio Equipment

Have a full Pro Tools HD v8 based studio at home in a treated space well suited for voice over recording.
Studio includes a selection of quality microphones that have been selected for my own vocal tone.
This studio is used for quite complex song recordings as well as personal audio for video production.

I recently helped my son with a school project which required a song to be written and recorded along with an accompanying music video. Although the video is poor the sound quality is excellent due to the studio facilities I have.

I can also perform guitar, synth and drum music tracks if required.
