What makes you pay attention to the message in a television or radio ad? Depending on the medium, catchy music, arresting visuals, and clever copy might contribute. But if the message stays with you, it’s due in large part to the voice. And it’s not just about the voice being pleasing to the ear; the voice needs to sound “right” for the words being spoken and the message being conveyed. It must be knowledgeable, confident, and persuasive for that topic. In short: it needs to be genuinely engaging.
FREE SAMPLES: Whether you need a straightforward narrator or a very specific character voice to help your message “stick,” I am happy to provide a few brief audio clips to see if we’re a match. Listen to my samples below, and you may hear a voicing that sounds right for your content. Then just e-mail me 1-3 brief paragraphs of your script, along with any other particulars about what you want to hear, and allow me 1-2 business days to provide sample WAV or mp3 format demo clips. (If you need faster turnaround, or another format, please contact me first to confirm availability.) When you engage me for your project, I am happy to go into a professional recording studio, or if your needs are simple and your budget limited, I can record at my own home studio. I always recommend a fully-equipped pro studio when your budget allows, but it’s often not needed for eLearning audio clips.
Either way, I record the finished voiceover script, tweak the audio clips as needed, and deliver the clean final audio files to you via e-mail in Mp3, WAV, or other agreed-upon format. I don’t typically provide background music or sound effects, as they aren’t usually needed/wanted in most eLearning voiceovers. But of course we can add some, if it’s right for your project.
NOTE: These SoundCloud files are provided using HTML5. If your browser does not yet support HTML5, I encourage you to download the latest browser or an alternate one; you’ll have a much richer experience on the web (and on mobile). If you would like to hear a broader sampling of my voiceover work, please visit my Acting site.

VOICEOVERS RATE: Each project has different requirements. I can quote by hour, page, or by full project. Please contact me directly with your specific project needs. You’ll find I’m not only competitive, I’m surprisingly affordable. Thank you!
