My voice has been described as hip, youthful, upbeat, trustworthy, conversational, professional, and most of all, versatile. I am able to render strong and compelling characters using a variety of dialects for your animation and video game projects. I can deliver whatever tone your script needs, be it quirky for commercials, authoritative for corporate presentations, or warm and reflective for narrations.

I have a passion for voiceover and embrace a strong, professional integrity. As my client, you will be my #1 priority and receive the finest quality results for your project. I'm not satisfied until you are!

Here are testimonials from some of my prior clients:

"Jared is an absolute delight to work with. He’s friendly and easy to direct. But we liked him most because he really understood the character we needed him to voice. He was funny and nailed many of the character’s lines on the first take, totally exceeding our expectations. He switched tone in an instant going from sad and dramatic to cocky and fun, depending on where we were in the script. We expected professionalism and got it. We expected him to give our character life, and he blew us away."
- Kit Rees - Owner, Squishy Animation, LLC

"Jared was very professional, and easy to work with. He made the entire process seamless, and his voice was a perfect fit for the documentary film I was producing."
- Clark Kidder - Author. Historian. Film Producer.

"We’ve been producing television commercials for many years, it’s rare that you come across a talent that has a tremendous range, that cares, that understands the needs of the client. That shows a sense of urgency whenever it’s needed. Everyone here at the Alan Ladd Group can’t recommend Jared Martzell enough. He is one of our Voice Over go to guys. Jared is a true pleasure to work with. "
- Alan Ladd - Owner, The Alan Ladd Group

"Jared is an outstanding voice actor. He recorded a variety of characters for one of our videogame titles, going from loudmouth detectives, to nervous police interrogation suspects and a whole other range of characters in-between. He also delivered a few hilarious improvised lines which boosted these characters to a whole new level. If you're looking for a top quality voice actor, both in terms of acting, as well as in the ability to follow direction and recording guidelines, this is your man."
