Jacob Serlen

announcer, narrator, sarcastic, conversational

Voice Description

My voice has a traditional narrator smoothness, a baritone that conversationally keeps the text flowing. I sound like I have a natural excitement and reassuring smile when pitching commercial products. Scaling back the pep but keeping the intensity is my ideal delivery for corporate presentations. As well, working as a comedic performer, I can easily flow in and out of off key characters with specific character traits (ie sarcastic, drunk, stupid, arrogant).
