I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
34 years as a Speech-Language Pathologist (recently retired), more than 20 years as a stage & film actor and over 20 years as a trained singer has given me knowledge and insight into the mechanics of the voice and speech. This wealth of experience has also helped in my development of character voices (male, female, mature, extremely elderly, creepy, bright, exotic, etc). My acting and singing background has enabled me to develop good emotional range to my voice. Currently, I am voicing podcasts for AIRS-LA (an audio internet service for individuals with visual challenges). I have completed a 2 book audiobook project for Redwood Audio, an imprint of McGraw-Hill and I am able to produce retail quality audio books from my home studio. I recently received a diploma as a Certified Medical Narration Specialist. I can, also, serve as a proof-listener for audio book narration productions.

VOICE DESCRIPTION
My voice has been described as youthful, cheery and not sounding at all like a “mature” woman…but let’s not go there. My youthful cheery voice is filled with intelligence and warmth. I can tell the story inside of a narrative in a conversational, down to earth and matter-of-fact manner. My voice can display a broad emotional range across a large repertoire of characters (female, male, young, old and “creature”). This voice of mine can also be informative and educational. My voice can be all that and yet also convey a sense of wonder when telling the story. My narratives are done in a believable conversational style for the audio book, e-learning or documentary genres. My vocal range would also be useful for animation or games.

You have a very good sound.  I am beginning an audio book where I am voicing the introduction

and end of chapter questions.  The author is voicing the body of the book.  How large are your files? Do you do a page at a time? Thanks for your help.

 

Love how you change voices for each character.

Best regards,
Earl Thomas
