My Voice Experience

I started in Australian Radio and broadcast media in 1987 as a Music Station Announcer and worked in the Radio industry until I was laid off due to budget cuts in 2013, Voiceovers and copywriting have always been my forte, with narration, explainers, phone IVR's, corporate training audio and radio and TV imaging the types of voice work that is most familiar to me.
My company 'Steve Mc Media' was born in 2013 and I've never been happier running and administrating my own freelance voiceover, copywriting and production editing business from my home studio in Melbourne, Australia.
I've worked with a wide variety of clients, from regional and provincial Radio Stations, ad agencies, media production houses and corporates as well.
Narration, web content, e-learning and phone IVR's has become my 'bread and butter' in this freelance lifestyle that seems to have chosen me and I absolutely love it!
I help my growing list of clients to sharpen their image and vocal message with an honest, efficient, good value approach, a fast turnaround, on budget and with a minimum of fuss.
