When you work with me, you can expect to work with someone who is focused, has a great voice and a natural feel for what tones, pitches and rhythm will work well with your script. 

However, you can also expect to work with someone who can (and will) put their ego aside and take direction. I always strive to improve and a big part of that is being teachable. I’m very teachable!

You can expect me to maintain a professional and enthusiastic attitude even when the going gets tough.  And most importantly, you can expect top quality results that are delivered on time, every time.

What a Voice Over Artist Can Do For You

In a nutshell, a professional voice over artist can take your script and bring it to life!  Voice over artists are actors who are trained to use their voice in a way that sparks a connection with the listening audience and commands their attention.

So how exactly do they do that?

Let me explain.  In everyday conversation, people use different tones and pitches in their voices that reflect their mood or their emotions.  A voice can sound friendly or hostile, abrupt or polite, gentle or harsh, bored or energetic, confident or nervous depending solely upon the tone of voice being used.

The tone of voice is not only a reflection of the speaker’s emotions, but it’s what stirs up emotions of the listener and produces a reaction to what’s being said. 

A soothing tone of voice can calm nerves and actually slow down the beating of a heart.  A harsh voice can cause someone to burst into tears or ignite a fist fight.  A voice emitting a monotone can (and most likely, will!) cause the listener to roll their eyes and tune out. 

Do you see the pattern?  The tone of the speaker’s voice conveys an emotion that instantly sparks both an emotional and physical reaction out of the listener!

So how does this apply to voice overs?

A professional voice over artist combines their acting talent with their ability to vocalize a wide variety of tones and pitches and applies it to how they present your script.   

But that’s not all. 

A professional also knows when to speak softly or raise their voice, when to pause and when to speed up.   They know that every little nuance in their voice is going to have an effect on the listening audience and trigger a reaction from them.

Whether the purpose of your message is to entertain, sell a product, provide information or supply directions, it needs to be vocalized in a manner that obtains the desired reaction from the listening audience. 

In other words, the voice presenting the message needs to match the purpose of the message.  And a professional voice talent can get it done with results that are nothing short of amazing.
