Smooth, Villain, Cartoon, Character, Falsetto
My typical speaking voice is smooth and calming and is what I typically use in projects involving commentary or passive suggestion.
For character acting I have a wide falsetto range, such as a baby or a mouse voice, as well as the ability to manipulate my voice into several villain archetypes such as loud and commanding or silver tonged as well as a few less stereotypical voices that still sound evil.
I can lightly alter the tone and pitch of my voice to sound more like a teenage male. I can easily crack my voice at will for a more stereotyped male teen performance.
For commercials I would likely use a slightly deeper than usual tone with a more playful positivity.
If needed I am an able throat singer/speaker and can do a good deal of vocal sound effects. Gaining skill at being able to speak in two voices at once for a demonic horror effect.

My Voice Experience
For as long as I can remember I have been developing different voices and impersonations.
More recently I have started doing video game commentary on YouTube at youtube.com/johnyliltoe . Aside from general commentary I also include voices for characters in games where the characters have text but no voices. With over 25 different series I have done a variety of difference voices.
I have also done Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) videos simply speaking gently into the microphone to induce relaxation in listeners.
I have watched a handful of videos on YouTube by different vocal coaches, but I am largely self taught through experimentation.
My Studio Equipment
I use a Blue Yeti USB Microphone and record and publish using Audacity.
I am a capable story writer and story teller. I am able to improvise a story to tell on the spot with little to no guidance.
I am an experienced communicator having 3 years of community support experience and 6 years of inter-office communication working for Disney Online Studios Canada.
I have 2 years of quality assurance experience and value quality in everything I do.
I am an video game, cartoon and anime enthusiast. I do not wish to limit myself to this type of work, but I am very familiar with the standards found in each.
