Mike Paul

Young, friendly, conversational, relatable, warm, natural, real, authentic, non-announcer

Voice Description


Today, companies like State Farm, Honda AT&T, among many others, are branding themselves with a warm, young, friendly, real, conversational sound. If this is what your brand calls for, you've found the right guy. :-)


When PBS launched its new PBS KIDS 24/7 TV channel in January 2017, they trusted Mike to bring his high energy A-Game to make the big announcement to parents and children on PBS stations nationwide. ExxonMobil wanted to enlighten consumers about energy, so they called on Mike to help explain complex topics in a way people can understand. BlueCross BlueShield chose Mike for his relatable, conversational sound to teach people on how to make more informed decisions about healthcare. The USAA relies on Mike to keep its employees engaged as they learn about its information management systems. Philips needed to inform and motivate its sales team, so they turned to Mike for his informative, inspirational feel. When HP Enterprise wanted to pitch the benefits of its DevOps services, they trusted Mike to bring that relatable but smart tech guy vibe.

Speaking of Mike: my professional, friendly demeanor and ability to quickly adapt to changing direction helps make every recording session run smoothly. Ongoing training means you're getting the very best, every time you book.
