I am an American voice talent with over 27 years of experience including countless voice overs for clients all over the world as well as on USA major market/network broadcasting outlets. My credits include voicing numerous explainer videos, iPad apps for children, slide presentations, several audiobooks, radio/podcast promos, DJ Drops, documentaries, animation characters, dubbing for ESL videos, voicemail phone greetings and so much more!I currently work for a radio station as the main voice over talent as well as afternoon drive host and news anchor so voicing commercials is something I do every day! I do all of my voice work from my professional home studio so that I can provide a fast turnaround to save you time and money while producing optimal quality results. I can get most voice over projects completed in 24 hours including revisions until you're 100% satisfied! Your file can be delivered in either wav or mp3 format. If you have a large voice over project send me a message with your requirements and I will give you a custom quote within 24 hours. Need to get an idea of what I sound like voicing your script or one for your client? No problem! Drop me a note and I can do a short custom demo for you!!! Looking for a great voice? You just found one! Mike
