Chris MacDonald

Conversational, Guy Next Door, Professional, calm

Voice Description

My voice and delivery have a warm, conversational, guy next door quality. It lends itself to a professional and articulate read. These combinations work well for narrations, e-Learning, corporate videos, and more.

I can bring a biographical story, or historical narration, to life; telling it in a manner as if I was the person who had gone through the experience.

And if you want something a little different, I am also very good at dry humor and putting some snark into reads.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

My voice has a neutral accent. It has a combination of mid ranges that can make a piece sound energetic, youthful, or like the guy next door; but can also provide a low end rumble and growl to bring out gravitas and weight when needed.
