Voice Description

Hello: I have a warm and sincere delivery that works very well for both commercial work and narration. At the same time, I have a wide range of characters and accents available that can bring a lot of fun to radio and television commercials, podcasts and animation projects and videogames. On the corporate presentation side, I have a lot of professional business and legal experience and can work with you to deliver a top-quality piece.

Thanks for thinking of me, and I look forward to working with you.

Best,

Mark
