Rafe Sampson

Versatile full-time professional with great range

Voice Description

A Voice Artist with elastic pipes for over 25 years.

"Real. Natural. Comfortable. Like your favorite jeans."

Those are the words of clients. Clients hailing from six continents over the past couple of decades. In my own words, I'm a versatile and experienced Voice Over Artist. It's what I do (and enjoy). Not a hobby or a part time job. I create voice overs for commercials, corporate branding, video, whiteboards, product demos, animation (dozens of characters), telephony, and a lot of e-learning.

I'm also a skilled copywriter and producer with multitrack experience. Can even splice tape!

You can hear demos, learn more about me and see photos of the studio on the website http://sampsonmedia.com.
