Mike Aguirre

Upbeat, Friendly, Young, Intense, Guy Next Door

Voice Description

I offer different vocal dynamics depending upon the project.

Need an average neighbor or guy next door? I can offer a friendly, warm delivery.

Does your project require a bit of an edge? I have a "tough as nails" character vocalization that will do the trick!

Are you searching for a late teen or young adult voice to appeal to a younger demographic? Look no further! I have the perfect character that is youthful, energetic and upbeat.

Perhaps you require a knowledgeable sales person to narrate your latest how-to video, sales presentation, or demonstration? I can draw on my years of experience in sales and use that to bring you a confident, clear, concise delivery that will put a professional finishing touch on your project.

My Voice Experience

I have been a freelance VO artist in the Southern California area since 2006. I have done commercial VO work for companies all over California. Some of my clients include Red Bull, Nitro 2 Go, McDonald's, Telemundo, Adelphia (now Time-Warner) Cable, plus many more.

I have recently been involved with ADR (Automated Dialog Replacement) AKA "dubbing" projects, specifically for Japanese Animation. This adds a layer of difficulty to performance, as one must not only stay in character, but you must match lip flap of characters who were originally animated in Japanese. This work is very technical voice-wise, but I love it, and welcome the challenge it provides as an actor.

I have recently completed character work on a few video games, but cannot release the names of the projects due to Non-Disclosure Agreements.

I have taken several college level acting classes and have performed in several regional community theater productions.

My Studio Equipment

I have access to a state of the art digital recording studio courtesy of James R. Alburger. Jim has over 30 years experience (and 11 Emmys) in sound production and design and he won't let anything out of there unless it meets his strict standards - that's a GOOD thing!

In addition to MP3, WAV or AIFF files, I provide recordings done in most any format, deliverable via my FTP site (or yours), or CD shipped to your location.

Additional Skills

I have over 10 years of sales experience which I feel brings a level of credibility when performing dialog for sales presentations or demonstration videos.

I have a BA in Computer Science and currently work in the information technology field. I also have previous experience with medical technology. Because of this experience, I am very comfortable with pronunciations for technical specifications and medical terminology. This has been an immense help on past projects.

I've played guitar for over 20 years, and also have experience with music and sound production.
