John Fernandez

Versatile Character Voices

Voice Description

I have a versatile range of sounds, ethnicities, regional dialects and characters that I can portray.

My affect can be smooth, calm and soothing or bombastic, abrasive and, at times, downright annoying (think Gottfried or nearly any car dealer commercial you've ever heard) and anything in-between.

Given the right copy, I can tell a story and will "take you there" - just close your eyes and listen.

My Voice Experience

Absolutely none yet. I've just finally decided - after all of the chiding of people who have heard me - to put this to some use and see if I can succeed. Yes, I've done some telephone answering machine stuff for friends and for myself of course but not yet anything professional. I'm anxious and eager.

My Training

Again, none. I did some acting in High School but I doubt you want to hear about that.
