Rick Jelinek

Persuasive, Sophisticated, Authoritative, Sexy

Voice Description

Here's how some of Rick's clients have described his voice:
Distinctive, sexy, authoritative, confident, rich, warm, believable, professional, sincere, cool, sophisticated, smooth, charming, friendly, dramatic, ominous, playful, persuasive, and unique.

Whether you need a top shelf corporate, medical or technical narration, the guy next door, or the best in characterizations, Rick can get the job done with super-fast turnaround without sacrificing quality.

His voice is capable of being clear and concise with excellent diction and enunciation. And he can do it in any way you'd like whether that's warm, friendly and smooth, or edgy and deep, with just the right amount of rasp so you don't just hear his voice, you feel it.

My Training

I'm equally comfortable editing audio files as I am in front of the mic. I've voiced and produced fully finished audio in over a hundred spots for one of my best clients, ranging from announcer to tons of different characterizations. Being a musician has also given me countless hours recording experience, as well as mixing and mastering tons of projects. I've also produced many different audio/visual projects for a major retail outlet. I've been responsible for creating and developing commercials and writing the scripts for these as well as voicing every one of the characters, editing and producing the fully finished projects.
