My Voice Experience

Bob has been a voiceover pro since the Mid-90's and can get your projects turned around in as little as a couple hours if needed.

Working out of his professional home studio means he’s available at a moment’s notice to fire up the Telos Zephyr ISDN Codec to give producers and clients the exact read you need.

His versatile range has allowed him to lend his voice to a wide variety of Radio/TV Commercials to Corporate Narrations and E-Learning Courses to the voice that keeps your clients company while On-Hold.

You've heard his voice locally, nationally and around the world for clients like Disney, Rubbermaid, Oreck Vacuums, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Steak Umm, Motorolla, Wyeth/Pfizer and Briggs and Stratton.

Finished projects can be delivered via email, FTP site or on CD if needed.

My Training

Bob began his career as a radio announcer in 1989 and became a fulltime v/o pro in 1996. Never fear, the "announcer voice" can be disengaged to fit any commercial...or turned on if you need "Don Pardo"

Telos Zephyr 9202 ISDN Codec
