Jerrod Haarstad

Professional, Textured Guy Next Door

Voice Description

CUSTOMER SERVICE FOCUSED

My primary goal is make sure you are 100% satisfied with the services I am providing you. I will not rest until you are completely satisfied. I provide broadcast quality voice over with 5-star service.

DYNAMIC, VERSATILE, PROFESSIONAL ARTIST

Whether you're looking for the conversational, believable guy next door or a fresh take on an out of the box character read, my voice is what you are looking for. I have voiced everything from National TV spots with professional commercial reads, to IVR for bi-coastal companies, to unique characters for animated projects.

I bring a wealth of versatility to the table. With a natural age range of late 20's to mid 40's, my dynamic male voice brings a textured, energetic flair to your project. I have a natural guy next door feel that creates a sense of trust with your audience base. Years of improv and acting experience have allowed me to build up a multitude of three dimensional characters. From the standard Southern Redneck Twang to the Mid-West to the New York East coast to the California Surfer Dude, I can hone in the right type of character to bring some life to your read.

With a background in the technical / IT field, medical field and business fields, I can handle even the most complicated technical reads to ensure the proper message and tone is conveyed and delivered.

My voice is a natural fit for all types of Commercials, Characters, Audio Books, Infomercials, Interactive Gaming, Corporate Presentations, Training, IVR Phone Holds/Telephone, Tutorials, TV/Radio, narration, and more!
