Ellwood Davis

A voice that always draws attention....from strangers to casting directors.....

Voice Description

My voice is very warm, resonant, and gets the attention of everyone in the proximity of where I speak. A natural bass/baritone that has been critiqued by several voice over trainers and casting directors as a natural for voice over work. Considered very sexy by women, and it is by far my greatest gift. Very smooth, natural, and professional. I have given many presentations, and was an Executive Vice President for three years at the Metropolitan Washington Airport Authority in Washington DC. I have a very professional appearance, and have done background acting in the HBO series VEEP.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

My voice can be so commanding it will remind many of Darth Vader, if I choose to go there. I cannot claim to have mastered many dialects, but I can imitate Popeye for short burst of scrip.

My Voice Experience

2013: I did voice over work for ISEECOLORLIVE, a internet-based media firm in Baltimore MD
