Michael B Shaw

Character Specialist with humor, whimsy and wit

Voice Description

For narrations, my traditional speaking voice is warm and charming with considerable resonance. For animation, I have a range of levels from baritone to soprano with many accent angles. For commercials, your wish is my command: wacky or mid-American or youthfully appealing.
For educational or documentary audio, my tone is both scholarly and accessible.
