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. He has also had training in audio engineering techniques 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.)
