Real Non Announcer Pleasant Voice, strange voices

Voice Description

Dear Potential Partner,

I am a conservatory trained actor and musician (Brooklyn College Conservatory and American Conservatory Theater) and have toured the world with West Side Story, Jesus Christ Superstar and The American Folk Theatre. As a voice actor, he has been the ‘guy next door' voice for numerous national radio and television campaigns, including Proactive, Arbys, Countywide, Shaklee and Lexus.

I can also be seen as an on-screen actor most recently featured in nation-wide ads for IBM.

Additionally, I am a 4th Degree black belt in Jujitsu that still practices regularly and volunteers for underprivileged children.

If my audition isn't exactly what you had in ear, I am certainly willing to do another take and take pride in my ability to interpret feedback and direction to satisfaction.

I have a professional studio (see below), complete with all the top-end gear necessary for FULL production of outstanding voiceover realization.

I can deliver audio in any format you like and share it with you from my email and/or DropBox, or any FTP service you might have.

Although I live in San Francisco (and occasionally New York), I am often in Los Angeles and given the correct circumstances, am willing to travel to studios elsewhere.

For more samples of my voice and a reel of my acting work (as I often work as on-camera talent), please visit my website; http://www.realvo.com.


Sincerely,
Steven Menasche
