Versatile, British, Multilingual, Character, Fun

Voice Description

Friendly, flexible, and bursting with creative energy.

Characters and accents - both regional and international - are a particular speciality, but also controlled and professional for straighter reads.

From podcasting to party songs, video games to e-learning, I am your talent.

My first language is English, but I also have a wide range of vocal skills in Italian, French, German and Spanish. I love playing around with different accents within and between, these languages - e.g. a Frenchman talking Italian, a German speaking Spanish, or various Indians talking English.

Comments from recent clients:

"We have used Rajiv on two projects now. His talent, work ethic, and attention to detail make him a tremendous asset to any project. We will definitely be working with him again."

Art Perper, President, Perper Design Associates, Inc.

"Rajiv Hasan was a joy to work with. His vocal talent is superb and his instinct is rare. He understood what we were looking for with very little direction. He gets the essence of a piece, then applies his incredible ability, flexibility and cooperation to make it even better than we imagined. We worked with him from across the Atlantic, but the distance was never a factor. Rajiv just nailed it. We look forward to working with him again."

My Training

A lifetime of mimicry led me to send a tape to the BBC some years ago, which proved to be a springboard into the world of voiceovers. Working with the likes of impressionist John Culshaw and director Richard Wilson (of Have I Got News For You), was a great help in developing my talents as a voice actor.

I have also spent the last eight years honing my voice skills as a presenter, promo maker and sports commentator on local radio.

Recently enhanced my skills through Gary Terzza's training scripts.

I have a BA Honours Degree in Italian and French, and have also studied German and Spanish to a high level of verbal fluency.
