Doug Turkel

Real, conversational voiceovers. Not an announcer.

Voice Description

Real person, friendly conversational voice overs. The kind of voice that sounds like someone you know, and someone you trust. The guy to call if your script calls for someone who's "Not an announcer." The guy next door. I'm often called to narrate corporate tutorial or educational videos when they want it to sound friendly and relatable, but still professional.

You know how every time you show up at a cocktail party, there's always that one beefy guy with the "Monster Truck" voice who hears what you do and explains how everyone tells him he should do voiceovers?

I'm not that guy.

I'm the guy people go to when they specifically don't want that guy. I'm like your brother-in-law (the one you like),
only with a Pro Tools based, ISDN-connected studio and some sweet Neumann and Sennheiser microphones.

Over the years, I've quietly become the voice behind more than 10,000 spots (really!) and a couple of TV networks.
And I've trained with some of the best: Orkin, Tobias, Wolfson, Fraley.

I've developed a strong roster of regular clients like MasterCard, NBC/Telemundo and McDonald's, and I've done it
all from my home base in Miami.
