Easy to work with and versatile voice actor with friendly, believable, conversational, mature, and enthusiastic voice
Jeff's voice is versatile. He can make it deep, enthusiastic, trustworthy, sincere, and mature. He can make it more friendly and conversational. Or, if necessary, his vocal quality can be more "announcer-like" if the project calls for that. Having given lots of presentations before live audiences in his career, Jeff's overall sound is smooth, warm, and professional.
Jeff's voice is ideal for audiences "who weren't born yesterday" (i.e., baby boomers and others age 50+) and are looking to hear from someone who is credible and genuine. For this reason, he would be an excellent choice for narrations, e-learning, corporate training, and product explainers for anyone who's middle-aged or older. For example, Jeff recently completed a short video promo for students who attend the University of Delaware's Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. In that instance, he wrote most of the script as well... one of his other skills.
Having spent several years in the health care industry, Jeff is also conversant with medical terminology, be it clinical or insurance-related.
Jeff trained with a distinguished voice-over coach and talent, who once worked closely with Mel Blanc of "Bugs Bunny" fame. More recently he trained with Tommy Griffiths, a nationally recognized and utilized voice actor. (See his website.) He has also had additional training in audio engineering techniques used for voice-over work.
Jeff's degree was in Radio-TV-Film from Temple University. Throughout his career he has worked in the communications field, handling anything from speaking engagements, to newscasts, to training programs, to writing assignments, to consulting.
His credits include newscasts, disc jockey work, and keynote presentations to large audiences.
Throughout his career, Jeff has had vast experience in working with or on behalf of middle-aged baby boomers and seniors. He wrote a book on that topic, too, entitled "Successful Marketing to the 50+ Consumer" (Prentice-Hall).
As a baby boomer himself, Jeff would be highly credible if you are interested in reaching the GIGANTIC and growing age 50+ market... and how can you NOT be-- even if you are selling baby food. (Hello, grandparents!!) He has an excellent overall marketing and communications background, is creative, and an excellent writer.
In addition to doing voice-over work, Jeff has excellent "in-person" performance skills honed throughout his career. (See above.)

My Voice Experience
Below are two recent client testimonials:
"We were very impressed with the quality of Jeff’s work. He has a very warm, inviting voice that was perfect for our project. Plus, he turned around our voice-over in less than 12 hours. You can’t beat that!"
Marty Katz, Sr. Director of Communications & Marketing
Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee Counties (FL)
"Recently, I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff Ostroff to create a 30-second voice-over ad for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of Delaware in Wilmington. I wanted an ad that was dynamic using both pictures and spoken words to highlight the feel of this unique program designed for people 50+ to stay intellectually and socially engaged. This ad was created for our webpage at www.lifelonglearning.udel.edu/wilm and for our Facebook page.
I chose Jeff to create this piece for several reasons. One is the quality and clarity of Jeff’s speaking voice. The other is his ability to work with my concept. Throughout the process, which was very quick, I had multiple opportunities to evaluate test samples and offer feedback. I am very pleased with the final product and the short turnaround time it took to produce it.
I highly recommend Jeff's services."
Carol Bernard, MS
Manager, Osher Learning Centers, University of Delaware
In addition to the training referenced above, Jeff continues to hone his voice acting skills through web-based training and other studies, plus via receiving guidance from long-time, successful voice-over pros.
