Neighbor, Commanding, wide range, sexy, masculine

Voice Description

"A professional voice that transcends in range from the power of authoratative leadership to the comfort level of your next door neighbor"

-Charles Michael, Director, The Voice Bank,NYC-

My voice naturally leads the audience to believe & trust what I am describing. I have a very wide range with a natural low resonant quality. I can also be mysterious, soft, melodic, convincing or funny. My ability to display comedic timing & sensitivity to the script comes naturally. In addition, plenty of women have described my voice as very sexy!

I am a true professional that will heed the direction of the producer & / or director in order to deliver first take material. That's my guarantee!

Thanks for listening,
Mark

My Voice Experience

I was approached some time ago by friends who were beginning a start up natural health company. Due to my background in media & television production, they asked if I would help them produce some seminars for video and audio distribution. Long story made short, I wound up writing introductions for each topic and recording myself doing the voice overs for budget reasons. Shortly thereafter, people would hear me speak and recognize my voice from all over the country and tell me how much they liked it.

Eventually I took the hint and began voice over training with the Voice Bank and Edge Recording in NYC and as they say, the rest is history.
