and on the web at

I love to be the voice that grabs the attention of an audience. No matter the size of the project, my passion for this business is what drives me. The ability to create a voice or character that a client needs excites me and continually motivates me. Having the answer that someone is looking for will forever be gratifying. My goal is to not just voice a project, it's to provide client satisfaction. Your project is my top priority and providing top notch quality and service at all costs is something you can expect.

Russ’s voice has been described in many ways!
Many of the Voice styles you can hear include: friendly, genuine, natural, authentic, guy next door, smooth, middle aged, corporate, business, educational, knowledgeable, compelling, authoritative, announcer, hip, funny, cool, urban, youthful, confident, sexy, animated, conversational, funny, enthusiastic, sincere, believable, country, folksy , southern, slow, calm, educational, , relatable, sophisticated , high energy, motivational, hard sell, soft sell, caring, sincere, attitude, smart, tough, deep, movie trailer, deadpan, serious, storyteller, TV Host, booming, cocky, attitude, angry, confident, dynamic, amusing, funny and more. The most common feedback from clients is the same; "ADAPTABLE" & "DIVERSE"

~Many projects require a unique sound that can't quite be pinpointed, sometimes clients are looking for something DIFFERENT and that is what Russ specializes in!!! Sometimes you might not know how to describe what you are looking for, but you "know it when you hear it". That is what we want to help you develop and find!

Style variations and sounds are great for projects. Russ can produce top quality English accents sounding native for any demographic or area of use.
