Voice Talent - US English, native speaker, neutral accent

United States - Tests: 12 - Portfolio: 4

(NOTE: Rate is for one hour of finished product. I will adjust this rate to fit your project!) I am building my portfolio on the strength of nine years of on-air and production experience in radio. Please review the jobs I have produced to date. USA born, raised, and based. Neutral accent, thanks to broadcasting school. Mature adult male voice, moderately deep, definitely authoritative. I have experience in various industries and professions. Technical jargon does not scare me. Foreign and regional pronunciations are not an issue. I am capable of utilizing medical terminology. I use Mixcraft 7 recording software and a professional desktop microphone, both installed in an up-to-date PC with ample resources. This set-up is in my home office/studio, and I control the background noise. If I cannot shut it off or admonish it to stay quiet, I can equalize it out of the track. My work ethic is simple - if I have the script, I need to get it recorded now. I will tell you that I can turn a project around in 24 hours, but don't be surprised to receive it sooner than that. College degrees in Marketing/Management and Business Administration, both with high academic honors. Genius IQ - former member of Mensa. You can let someone else learn and make mistakes on your time, or you can hire me.

Philippines - Tests: 11 - Portfolio: 2

Don't you just abhor misplaced apostrophes, superfluous commas, and unprofessional typos?

I guarantee high-quality work promptly delivered and specially created to meet your project specifications. I aim to provide quality work to clients in the areas of writing and editing, data entry, and business services. I have a general background of financial accounting, statistics, and have been exposed to annual reports.
