Voice Description

Thanks for checking out my profile. I was born and raised in the Middle East and then traveled around the globe until my family and I immigrated and settled in Toronto, Canada in the early eighties. Now I am living my childhood dream, which was, living and working in Hollywood, California. My love and dedication to my craft started as early as the age of 8, where I used to make and imitate different and weird kind of voices. All the students in my school then, would insist that I do them over and over again. My love to voice over world came out of observing my dad chanting in in all kinds of ceremonies. I am experienced voice over artist and a professional actor/director. My voice is deep, sexy movie premier/trailer kind of narrative voice. My voice range from young adult to middle age male. I am able to do French and Arabic accents. For a few years I did radio dramas for CBC Radio Canada. I have been mastering my voice for a few decades now, studying and working with top voice over teachers and casting directors.
