Jackie Bales

Storyteller, Narrator, Conversational, Warm and Friendly

Voice Description

I've worked as a voice actor for over 20 years and am known for versatility and directability.
I often use my voice in the lower range -- warm, confident, smooth and professional in narrations, documentaries, medical narration and eLearning, for example.
I also like to be comfortable, laidback and conversational in my delivery, especially in commercials.
However..for infomercials and other types of commercials, if needed I can easily kick up the pitch and speed for an exciting, energetic read that gets people moving toward the phone.

My Voice Experience

I have over 20 years experience in the VoiceActing world, with clients ranging from national and international companies, down to local mom and pop enterprises. I've done everything from commercials to documentaries and in-show narration, to eLearning and online medical narration for doctors. Basically I'm a storyteller--and that's how I approach all my work.
Clients include: Atlantis Paradise Resort, US Army, IBM, Depend, the Palace at Versailles, Office Depot, Ryder, Baptist Health, University of Florida, New You Red Carpet Hair Products by Nick Chavez and many more.

My Training

I spent quite a few years in broadcasting (TV & radio news in Miami, Tampa and Reno) prior to becoming a voice actor. Right out of college I worked behind the scenes in TV production and as a Booth Announcer at a TV station in Sacramento.
In addition to VoiceActing, I currently do On-Camera work as well--primarily as a host/spokesperson and interviewer. I'm also a Pledge Host at South Florida's PBS Station, which requires live adlib and teleprompter skill.
I've given a lot of thought and spent a lot of time understanding the art of VoiceActing, and have studied with David Goldberg, Dave Walsh, and Marice Tobias just to name a few.
Because of my lengthy history in Voiceover, as well as OnCamera Hosting and Interviewing, not to mention my college major in Communications with a minor in English, I'm a skilled communicator. I can write scripts, and can polish them if needed, especially helpful to international clients who want American localization to their scripts.

My Studio Equipment

I have my own fully equipped home studio, complete with a WhisperRoom, a Neumann TLM103 mic, Audient iD14 DAW, and a MacBook Pro using TwistedWave to record on. I also have a Shure KSM27 mic and ProTools with an mBox2 as backup equipment, along with an iMac. You can connect with me and direct and/or listen in via Skype, ipDTL or SourceConnect.
