You can contact Donny directly at Donny@DonnyVoice.com.

Donny has voiced over 2,000 projects, including commercials, radio imaging, Whiteboard animation videos, corporate narration and training, E-learning modules, telephone/on-hold/IVR recordings, and more.

*BACKGROUND*
Donny's ability to nail voiceovers isn't an accident, since he's also been broadcasting, giving public presentations, and using his voice professionally for a decade. His 8-year experience as a successful advertising sales executive also helps him understand the importance of meaningfully reaching customers with your product's story.

When he isn't recording or narrating, Baarns serves as the Spring Training play-by-play voice of the Oakland Athletics. He's part of the Triple-A Omaha Storm Chasers broadcast team, and calls college basketball in the winter.

*BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY*

Donny comes from an entrepreneurial family, so he loves working with other business owners and action-oriented people. He's prompt, reliable, and easy to collaborate with. Most projects are delivered within 24 hours. Donny prides himself on communicating openly and honestly with clients, and treating them like business partners.

When you work with Donny, you'll have peace of mind that your project will be completed smoothly, and in a timely fashion.

*STUDIO / AUDIO & TECHNOLOGY*

As a client, you have a right to demand top-quality audio. That's what Donny delivers. All of his voice recordings use a Sennheiser MD-421 II microphone for world-class sound. His studio is equipped with a Presonus AudioBox, StudioOne digital audio workstation, and Izotope RX5 (the audio editing software used by the world's leading audio professionals).

Donny is not only the son of an entrepreneur; he's also the son of an audio engineer. His voice recordings reflect that, and help separate him from the competition.

*ADDITIONAL SERVICES*

Donny can provide production music and sound effects to create a fully finished, world-class product.
