Mid-deep tone; professional; British accent.
As a trained voice, I am used to varying my voice to suit whatever script comes my way. As a presenter on Radio, I presented up-beat music shows e.g. a breakfast show, as well as laid back shows e.g. music for lovers. Both examples demand taking the voice from one extreme to the other to suit the mood of the programme. I have also been used for narrations on documentaries and also have experience as a presenter of monologues where the inflection and range of the voice is crucial.

My Voice Experience
I trained as a broadcast voice and worked in the Nigerian broadcast industry, primarily as a Continuity Announcer, News Reader and Disc Jockey. I was part of the presentation department of the first FM station in Nigeria back in the eighties and, I have to stress that it was essential to be one the best to have been considered for that role which I carried out for five years before returning to the UK to further my education.
Whilst in the role, I also got involved in other forms of presentation. I was regularly doing voice work on documentaries and other productions for radio as well as participating in radio dramas, as skill set that I particularly enjoyed as it required the ability to bring characters to life as was dictated by the script writers.
Please, also listen to the demo "Who is Tunji Babatunde?" which also tells the story of my experience.
My exposure to the spoken word started in secondary school in Nigeria with Oral English lessons - I attained an A-grade in both Oral and written English at O-level. When I broke into broadcasting, I trained on the job as apprentice and then formally at the Radio Nigeria Training School in Lagos, Nigeria. I also have a degree in Media Production, which was embarked upon to expand upon my experience and training.
My Studio Equipment
I record all of my work digitally on computers and then master and export to MP3 or WAV formats as well as CD or DVD if requested. I can also deliver jobs via cloud based services like Google drive, One drive; Dropbox etc.
I KNOW that I can deliver whatever the script demands and respond accordingly to direction in studio or based on the specifics of a programme synopsis. Whilst away from the broadcast industry, I have endeavoured to continue using my voicing skills whenever the opportunity arises.
As a Computer Systems Engineer (that's something else I do for bread and butter), customers and colleagues alike have always noted and commented on the quality of my voice. I have been known to lend my voice to work phone systems to add a professional touch. My voice messages on my home phone and mobile are also testimony to my yearning to continually exploit the training that I have received in the broadcast industry.
Going back to experience as a Systems Engineer, I have gained an added benefit based on the fact that the world as a whole and, certainly that of broadcast and media industries, have become more computer centric. My computing experience has served me well in terms of being knowledgeable in all things technology as presently leveraged in the industry.
