Jim Edgar

Warm, Conversational, Intelligent, Regular Guy

Voice Description

While physically located in the San Francisco Bay Area, my voice has been heard in many places throughout the world.

I've provided broadcast-ready voice tracks for radio and television commercials, narrations, web videos, eLearning and animated and video game characters.

My basic vocal tone is warm and mid-range - great for caring or conversational spokesperson; Intelligent, knowledgeable and approachable - the helpful teaching expert for training needs or educational and technical narrations.

For your video games and animated adventures, I can provide countless characters to love or hate - from over-the-top mad scientists and caffeinated nerds to more focused and dangerous folk to populate the universe of your imagined world.

I regularly deliver quality audio on time or better, and am always happy to provide auditions specific to your script.
