Doug Zanger

easygoing, indie, alternative, tech, natural, accessible

Voice Description

My natural delivery style lends itself to work that is unique and versatile. I tend to excel in indie, softer-sell or storytelling, humor being where I am most naturally comfortable with wide-ranging emotion being in close proximity.

In commercials, I can give a wide range of delivery and expression.

For narration, I am conscious of getting an emotional delivery, appropriate for the material.

For presentations/on-hold, I can give a sound, professional, yet younger delivery.

Recently, I have been doing much more work in the tech/digital category as it seems to fit the "engineer" mold.

My voice has been called, "Prominent, yet not intimidating. Unique, but very accessible."
