Lawrence Todd

engaging, confident, friendly, articulate, learned

Voice Description

Long-form narration: Fiction
I go for an engaging but smooth tone with most fiction. I want the listener to "buy in" but without spoon-feeding the book to them.

Long-form narration: Non-Fiction
The titles I've done so far for non-fiction present an argument, and I make it my job to convey that argument clearly and convincingly.

Radio spots:
Because most listeners are used to the smooth deejay voice and ultimately annoyed by the "Fast Eddie" voice of commercials, I go for a resonant, smooth, and even soothing voice with most of my radio work.

eLearning / Screencasts:
No matter how informative, tutorial or information videos can put people to sleep, so I try to keep these fast-paced and lively. I sometimes go for conversational, as if the watcher is listening to a co-worker explain the matter.
