My Voice Experience

My clients can say it much better than I can:

"Matt is a great resource for our company. In addition to the fact that he is extremely talented, he has always provided us with prompt service and was willing to do whatever was needed to make the project the best it could be." Joe Taylor, Sleepy Creek Studios

As a kid, I had a knack for voices and I guess you could say it all started there and then continued through school (Speech Team, School Plays, etc.).

I used to be a Production Director for several Illinois radio properties. Not only would I voice many of the commercials, but also write, edit, produce and direct talent.

I wasn't your typical music over announcer "radio guy." I wanted my commercials to be effective for the client and also engaging for the listener. Whenever possible, there was a narrative involved that made the spot memorable and drove business to the advertiser.

Today, I'm working for myself. Recent projects have included commercial work, short films, industrial safety and corporate communication.

If you want more specific examples, please don't hesitate to contact me. I'd love to work with you!
