Jim Cosens


Voice Description

For narrations or corporate work, my voice is best described as warm and genuine, confident and informative.

When it comes to commercials, what is it you need? If it’s a rugged Chevy truck sound, just listen to my demo! But if you would rather have more of the "guy next door" or something in between, that falls naturally in my wheelhouse as well. Because as a voice actor my job is to give you options; to give you exceptional reads within the context of your project that hopefully will give you the solution you are looking for.

My Voice Experience

I have had the distinct privilege of having a great career with a Top 10, Fortune 500 company managing training and learning activities around the globe. Yeah, it’s been pretty cool! As part of this role, I have provided voice-overs for many of our internal training programs on topics ranging from leadership development and corporate policy initiatives, to manufacturing strategies and lean concept principles.

In addition to my corporate work, I also provide voice-over services for a wide variety of external customers, both domestic and international that require professional, customer focused voice-over products. I have voiced projects ranging from commercials for small family owned businesses, to promotional campaigns for large multi-national corporations. All delivered with the same focus on customer satisfaction.

With extensive experience in the corporate world, I am very much in tune with what is required and what it means to meet customer expectations. When deadlines, tight budgets, and high performance expectations are the norm, it is nice to have a voice talent who has been there, done that!

Thanks for your consideration. Let’s begin working on a great project together!
