Characters, Emcee, Announcer, Friendly Deep Male

Voice Description

I've been told I have a great voice since I was a teen. Imagine Johnny Cash meets Walter Cronkite. My voice is boomy and deep, strong and articulate.

I can be animated and wild or extreme just as I can be the conservative announcer. Accents can be performed too. I do India, British, Midwest, and mid Southern.


I studied voice and diction and had professional training.

Presentations can be done casually or I can speak in an articulate manner, neutral or friendly.

Commercials can vary wildly, from the stereotypical monster truck ad, to friendly articulate, conversational, neutral or friendly

Characters can be soft, mean, surfer/hippie, conservative or accented.
