John Sousa

Character, likeable, energetic

Voice Description

---Fun and energetic for commercials and promos

I find that my voice is optimal for youth-related projects, such as commercials for toys and gadgets, breakfast cereals, sodas/sports drinks, fast food restaurants, and sporty but economical cars and trucks. As for promos, I'm at my best with projects for cartoons, sitcoms, video games and amusement parks.

---Professional for presentations and automation

I can tone it down and give you a nice straightforward read for training projects and phone messages.

---Warm and evocative for audiobooks and narration

Thanks to my background in theatre, I am well-suited to bringing characters and stories to vibrant life.

---------------

So here's the deal: I'm an actor. That's where most of my experience lies. I've done various stage plays and musicals, and a couple indie films. I'm relatively new in the voice over world, but my skills as an actor definitely translate to this medium.

Also, I speak Spanish and Portuguese, and I've worked as a Portuguese interpreter.
