Patrick Michaels

Genuine, authoritative, guy next door, characters

Voice Description

I cover a wide varied of voice styles, from intelligent and authoritative to flat, dry, wry; sarcastic smart-ass; urban blue collar or hapless nebbishy nerd.

My strong suit is "real." I'll make your dialogue, narrations, ad copy and announcer copy sound like they're being spoken by a real person – a friend, co-worker, the guy next door, your family doctor, or the family member across the table.

I also specialize in super-fast disclaimer speed.

I can easily translate from French, Spanish, Italian or German into any style of English: street, colloquial, formal, academic, etc.
