Mike Baker

Voice Description

I have a naturally very deep and resonant voice, which I can also modulate into the upper baritone range in an easy, conversational way. Conversely, pitching it way down into true basso profundo territory is no problem either.

My voice is ideally suited for narration, explainers, and corporate training videos and presentations, but I've done commercials and characters as well.

My voice has been described as gentle, deep, sexy, thoughtful, authoritative, cool, pleasant, educational and flexible. And low. Did I mention low? ;)

My Voice Experience

I have been voicing internal company trainings and presentations for over a decade, for clients including Apple, Cisco Systems, Juniper Networks, IBM, EMC, Microsoft, and other tech giants.

I have also done public service announcements, radio commercials and video game characters for smaller concerns around my home base in the San Francisco Bay Area for many years.

I strive to provide a client response and project turnaround time that's measured in hours, not days, so you can keep your production moving without sacrificing quality. And my strong working knowledge of grammar, diction, and vocabulary as well as my easy-to-work-with attitude makes direction easy and efficient.

I also have a versatile music and audio background that can add just the right touch to any recording. If you're looking for original, custom music tracks for your productions, my 20 years of experience as a musician, composer, singer and producer - plus my studio full of instruments and professional audio production gear - can set your project apart from the others.

Finally, and most importantly, I'm all about making your job easier. From our first contact to finished audio delivery, I'll take your production from concept to reality with simple, respectful efficiency. My goal is to make sure that the voiceover for your project is just plain handled.
