My Voice Experience

Clients have used my voice for commercial, corporate video, explainer video, e-learning, documentary, movie trailer, infomercial, promo, training, business presentations, show openers, sales, website. The plural of these words are commercials, corporate videos, explainer videos, documentaries, movie trailers, infomercials, promos, business presentations, show openers, sales, websites.

I have done TV and radio spots for several companies, Narrations for training and for documentaries, I've used character voices for business audios and commercials. I have also done several Don LaFontaine - type movie trailer voice projects. I am skilled at keeping the audience interested without sounding too announcer-like.

Ernie is a great voice-over artist! We've used him on two projects and have been very impressed with the results. Not only did he get the final content over to me super fast, but he was able to achieve exactly what we were looking for. Highly recommend him to anyone!

I began in voice over as a part actor for a promotional audio tool on CD. Since then, I have participated in live paid speaking events with audience sizes ranging from 200 to 5,000. These speaking events have been recorded live. I have also created 30 minute scripted audio promotion tools that were directed, recorded, and produced by me. I have experience with web site audio, phone messages, promotion, and I am fortunate enough to be doing voice over work full time now from my home studio.
