Charles Minkoff

Warm, Voice of Authority, with Humorous Edge

Voice Description

If one word could describe my voice it would "range." I can tailor my delivery to whatever the project requires. For narrations and presentations, I can provide the voice of authority or a deeper, warmer, smoother voice. For commercials, I can range from "that deep voice you need to remember" to the everyman or a more comic delivery, as needed. In addition, if the project needs an accented voice, I can provide a light Southern accent which ranges from indeterminate to Mid-Atlantic or a New York standard accent. Otherwise, my voice is neutrally accented, but can be adapted as needed for other regional accents.

Additional Skills

As a former research scientist and practicing patent attorney, I am comfortable with complex subjects and projects. I am completely familiar with scientific concepts from the fields of biology, physics and chemistry, and thus able to speak about them comfortably. As an attorney, I am completely comfortable with legal terminology and concepts.
From both professions I am comfortable with adjusting my delivery for both professional and nonprofessional audiences. As a scientist and a lawyer, I must be able to convincingly explain complex concepts to people who may know little of a topic, but must make difficult decisions regarding the subject matter. In addition and particularly as a lawyer, I must convincingly convey both information and emotion to persuade my audience to my arguments.

Payment Methods Accepted

• Personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders in my local currency
