First of all, he's willing to travel for the right work, so don't let geographic restrictions stop you from contacting him.
Because Joseph is a trained Voice Actor, he brings to bear the complete character, not just a quick booth read of a script. With that kind of depth, the spot is far more believable than when the drive time host knocks out the copy for your product.
An extremely keen ear for dialect and the ability to reproduce regional accents upon request. A large technical vocabulary, including military and medical terms, that can be brought to bear on industrial pieces with minimal rehearsal. Excellent Cold Reader.
