In his demos, you'll hear: British, Irish, Smurfs, Animal from the Muppets, Marvin the Martian, JFK, redneck, Russian, southern twang, and more!
With the ability to easily switch between hip young adult and confident, authoritative middle age, Joseph can capture that Generation X or Generation Y sound you're looking for and uniquely adapt it to your movie trailer, video game, commercial, or radio ad. Explainer videos, mobile app advertisements, and e-learning are also a snap - Joseph can absorb technical terms quickly and deliver them like a pro!
