Allam Forster

Relatable, generous, authentic conversationalist

Voice Description

Raised in New England by a Canadian mother and an English father, my voice does not have discernible specific accent. With a friendly and approachable intonation, my voice offers a genuine and honest sound. Whether I am selling a product or recounting a story from the past, I provide a sound of enticing comfort that is, first and foremost, relatable.

Growing up I was fascinating by videogames and television sales on channels like QVC and HSN. At the time, videogames rarely featured vocals. From these experiences I developed a variety of voices to give sound to what was otherwise only a musical endeavor. I also spent hours mimicking the assured and informational delivery of commercials, creating a presentation style that was professional.

My voice has been described as:
Relatable
Conversational
Hipster
Assuring
Comforting
Bright
Energetic

My Voice Experience

At Yale University I developed and hosted two podcasts that examine the personal narratives behind academics, artists and individuals. One of these shows, The Lower Frequencies, is still in production. This show illuminates the personal lives behind scholarly contributions and, in doing so, sketches a broader narrative about the development of an academic discipline.

My Training

I began to pursue my life-long dream of voice acting in the final years of completing a PhD in African American Studies and Film & Media Studies at Yale University. I have a thorough understanding of contemporary media and the importance of how recorded sound can represent different identities.

I have completed The Pit's Level 1 Improv class and workshops/courses with luminaries in the field including Robert Clotworthy, and Roger Becker, Andy Roth, Billy Serow.
