Steve Bell

A cross between Steve Erwin and a Gentleman

Voice Description

A disctinctively different 'down under' sound.

I was born in New Zealand to English parents, and I have been living in the United States now for a number of years.

Everywhere I go people comment on my voice and ask me where I am from. It is most commonly described as a cross between Steve Erwin (The Crocodile Hunter) and a British Gentleman.

Personality is of course a big issue too, and it is important to have a great sense of humor. In fact I've had people say "We love working with you Steve, because you just come out and say what we're all thinking, but wouldn't dare to say out loud!" I'm not sure if that's a compliment, but hey, I'll go with it.

Strong scientific and technical background. Ideal for tech narrations.

My Voice Experience

Technical Background

I was selected straight out of high school to be trained by New Zealand's prestigious Physics and Engineering Laboratory, in the government's Department of Scientific and Industrial Research (DSIR). This was the NASA of New Zealand!
ived had our academic qualifications as well as the best work experience available. Through the DSIR I learned that there was nothing that couldn't be done - it just took time and dedication.

When I was 22 I started my own company, Digital Design Ltd. This ultimately brought me to the United States.

Over the years I have enjoyed building custom electronic equipment for clients, developing custom software, and running business websites and communication systems in a secure networking environment.


Moved to the United States

I was getting more work in the United States than in New Zealand, so I moved here.

In 2009 I became a US Permanent Resident.

I have lived and travelled all over this incredible country; Texas, Tennessee, Colorado, Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC, and of course New York and California.

The people everywhere have been wonderful to me, and I have made some fantastic friends.


Started doing Voice Overs

Everywhere I go in the United States I get the same two questions. I can't even go through a fast food drive thru without being asked:

"Where are you from?"

"What are you doing in ...insert name of town... ?"

So may people have commented on my voice and said that I should be on TV or radio, that I decided to set myself up, learn as much as I could about voice acting, get some wonderful guidance from those already in the industry, seek out great coaching, and see where it all leads. The response has been fantastic.

Many people have described me as a cross between 'the crocodile hunter' and a gentleman.

Personality is of course a big issue too, and it is important to have a great sense of humor. In fact I've had people say "We love working with you Steve, because you just come out and say what we're all thinking, but wouldn't dare to say out loud!" I'm not sure if that's a compliment, but hey, I'll go with it.
