My Voice Experience

I started my career as a voice artist while I was pursuing my engineering, with singing songs in Hindi for animated series and animated movies of Walt Disney production in Mumbai 2006.. then ventured into dubbing for animated series and movies. Eventually lent my voice for TV and radio spots/ads and jingles. And have never looked back. I also do IVR in English and many Indian languages.
I am a singer pursuing Indian classical music for more than 20 yrs now, therefore i have tremendous control over the volume, level, breath and clarity of my voice which is very helpful for voice overs also. Will be interested in any music project too.
I was also an RJ with a Bollywood radio station in London called Zee radio.
I moved from Mumbai to New York and now settled in Singapore therefore working from home suits me the best. I have a full fledged home studio set up with good gears, just enough to produce good quality voice overs.
