Taj Shareef

Warm, Youthful, Trusted Neighbor of Friend,

Voice Description

For commercials and narration I have a naturally youthful, but crisp deep voice appropriate for playing voices 20's- mid 30's. My voice conveys warmth from a brother or trusted neighbor. I also have a vocal sound of an urban, techy young man.

For IVR systems and E-Learning my 20-30's vocal range and non-regional accent can be applied to any number of systems for a great range of companies. A natural warmth and human sound that can be professional or more youthful in a fun new startup kind of way.

For Animation I have an expanding list of characters ranging from Old men, dragons, stoic samurai, or demons. I can use the bass in my voice to create a number of characters
