Voice Description


Due to my exceptional service, my clients are accustomed to receiving a high level of attention in every interaction; whether it’s live during a recording session or communicating project specifications via e-mail. From our first contact it will be clearly evident to you that you made the best choice for your project. Your overall satisfaction is my ONLY concern.

I am committed to doing everything possible to ensure that your needs are met. Because of my impeccable communication skills you will always have clarity about your project; from the point you hire me, to the handing over of deliverables, to the post-delivery follow up.


My voice has been a part of a number of corporate marketing strategies. Businesses have chosen my voice for new product launches, product line re-introductions, promotional videos and public service announcements.

I was most recently chosen to be the voice of The Columbus Dispatch. A regional news organization whose re-branding efforts included a variety of television and radio spots.

I've also been selected by pharmaceutical leader Johnson & Johnson to narrate Public Service Announcements. These animated videos discussed the important subject of prostate cancer.

Do you need an experienced voice for your project? Do you like working with people who put you at ease? Do you enjoy the feeling of knowing that your concerns are not only being heard but acted upon? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I’m your ONLY choice. Contact me today!


My voice is a strong baritone with a highly authoritative and persuasive characteristic. It embodies confidence and power with tones that are warm and inviting. My versatility enables me to smoothly transition between roles requiring an urban contemporary voice to those that specify a Middle American sound. I can voice professional corporate needs or be relaxed and display humor when it’s called for. I've been told my voice has some resemblance to that of Barack Obama.

Being raised by immigrant parents my home was filled with influences of Latin America and the Caribbean. While I don’t speak Spanish fluently I am able to read Spanish copy. I’m also able to do an “Island Dialect”: West Indian, Caribbean, Jamaican.

I can effortlessly move through my various styles; turning them on and off like a faucet! When versatility is required, look no further. Reach out to me today!

Feedback from clients have noted my dependability, flexibility and ease to work with. Please see a few comments below:

Horatio Baltz Visual Designer at Company Confidential

Cecil is not only an invaluable talent, but he is also very easy to work with and maintains a level of professionalism and reliability far too scarce in his line of work. I used Cecil's unique voice narration for a creative project. He took the time to fully understand my concerns, references, and creative direction. He made sure to address my edits in a timely fashion, and I was more than happy with the results and grateful for such a smooth experience.

Anna Beltran VP and COO, Framedia Inc.

Very professional, on-time and a pleasure to work with! Will definitely get your services again :)

Nigel Woodberry Editor/Producer/Photographer

Cecil did voiceovers to support the branding campaign for the City of Lee's Summit, MO. He did a great job, offering different types of reads in a very timely manner. The stakeholders here at the City were very impressed with his work.

Josh Skehan Video Producer, Entrepreneur, Marketer

Cecil hit the mark on our video project, making our clients and us very happy. Easy to work with as well. I recommend Cecil.

Additional Skills

My presentation skills have been honed as a result of my 25 years experience as a professional sales person in the commercial printing industry.

Attention to detail and methodical follow-up was key to my success in these endeavors. This work along with my training has prepared me well for the rigors of doing voiceovers.
