Dave Wollert

Guy next door with comedic timing & Offbeat

Voice Description

My natural voice is in the baritone range, with a distinctive disarming tonal quality that keeps me from coming off like a read-anything-for-money announcer.

I come across as the non-stodgy guy next door when doing a heart-to-heart straight on announcing, or narration.

I've done a fair amount of stand-up and comedic corporate hosting and that experience comes through in my ability to bring the humor to life in comedic spots, and breathe needed life into straight ahead spots and presentations.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I don't do impressions, but I've helped a lot of clients cut through the clutter with something you might call "Don Pardo With Less Money & More Humor" -- it's a big, resonant guy who doesn't quite realize how funny he sounds.

My Voice Experience

I sold a lot of hot dogs as the over-the-top and frequently funy Voice of Wienerschnitzel's Wienerdude Campaign for six full years.

Keeping our pork theme going -- I delivered a range of performances from heart-to-heart to pretty darn crazy for four years running as the California Voice of HoneyBaked Ham.

I sold a lot of marginally more healthful protein bars as the decidedly authoritative and frequently funny Voice of Promax Energy Bars.

I've also delivered long form narration for a number of clients, including: Nature Made Vitamins, Idaho Milk Products, and The Adventist Health System.



My Training

I rose through the ranks of America's ad agencies and achieved the grand exalted title of Creative Director at Bozell & Jacobs -- which I'm reasonably sure had nothing to do with the eventual demise of Bozell & Jacobs.

Along the way I worked for D'Arcy MacManus & Massius as a staffer on Budweiser, Michelob, Southwestern Bell, Coleman, and an array of other blue chip accounts. Later in life, I worked on a half dozen other key D'Arcy accounts as a freelancer.

I've produced well over one hundred radio spots for a wide range of clients, so I know prospective clients are looking for someone to bring their work to life -- not someone to rewrite the copy.

I've also done on-camera work for Wienerschnitzel, Mattel, and HoneyBaked Ham.

My Studio Equipment

I will record demo tracks at home and e-mail mp3's to interested parties. When hired, I'll record finished tracks at a local studio. Since I've produced well over one hundred radio spots as a writer/producer, I'm fully capable of working with engineers to come up with an effective finished spot, or finished track.

Additional Skills

Stand-up comic.

Former professional keyboard player.

Longstanding member of The Writers' Guild Of America -- Credited Writer of five, original produced screenplays, and writer of numerous network television series and specials.
