    Voice Over Artist/Digital Nomad

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    PLEASE NOTE: I will be traveling from about July 28 through July 31st so will not be available for new work these days. Once I have arrived at my destination, I will update my availability. Thank you. Over the last 10 years, 4 of those years working via oDesk and now Upwork I have been a voice over artist and developed a wide range of different voices for a growing clientele. From upbeat radio tag promos for sales, medical voice overs for employee instructional videos, corporations that need a voice for power point presentations, voice for You Tube, audio book recordings, on hold phone message recordings, Instructional Design, audio production/editing my list keeps growing and I keep learning as I go and do my very best for clients always. Clients have been many and varied from large corporations to small businesses and start ups. 24 - 48 hour turn around time depending on length of projects and what I am already working on. NOTE: My hourly rate posted is ONLY for administrative type work, not voice overs. For voice overs I am more than glad to give potential clients a quote. Clients usually pay as a bonus, milestone or fixed rate for these. I will do two re-dos of recordings at no charge. After the second there is a nominal fee. I also welcome the opportunity to assist clients with personal assisting, email handling, transcription, etc. however my first choice is and will always be voice over projects. My ONLY three primary ways of responding to potential new clients are through Upwork, direct email, skype and directly by phone. I am fortunate to have great clients that have become long term and continue using my services. I absolutely love Upwork and the projects-both challenging and easy that have come my way and continue to as a result. It has been and continues to be a wonderful journey into the world of freelance.
