Mike Quirk

Warm, Friendly, Character Specialist plus Accents

Voice Description

I'm an all American everyman with much more to offer: a Very warm, friendly and natural sound -- "a trusted friend" for commercials. Or I can be the fun and energetic man's man; add a little sarcasm, and I'm the voice in your head that tells you what you need to hear. Plus I've got a warm, deep sound that is knowledgeable yet approachable for narrations. Professional presentations shine with my smooth and conversational style. If you need an over the top sell, I've got the energy and spark to wow you with a completely believable effervescent exuberance and intensity. Add to that my multitude of unique characters plus variety of accents, and you have in me a one man library of voices at your disposal.
