Voice Actor, Copy Writer, Studio Engineer, Creative Director
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Gene Bogart is a veteran broadcast personality and producer, entertainer, voiceover artist, TV announcer, and live-event M.C. Originally from New York, where he hosted The Gene Bogart Show on drive-time radio in the Long Island market, Gene has been located in South Florida for over 15 years, from where he operates his state-of-the-art digital recording and production facility.
RECENTLY BOOKED PROJECTS
For the last several years, Gene has gained even wider recognition and praise as the producer and co-host of the highly successful Gary Renard Podcast series, which has routinely been ranked within the "Top 10" in the Spirituality category at iTunes, often sharing the top ranks with other notables such as Oprah Winfrey and Eckhart Tolle.
English (Also, I pronounce Spanish well - for a gringo - although I'm far from fluent...)
Big, full, "Traditional Announcer" sound... also, inflective "voice actor" deliveries in a wide multitude of styles and sounds. Gene Bogart is one of the best "diction-oriented" speakers in the business, even with highly technical material.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Lots of wacky character voices... Gene's dialects have often been accused of sounding like New Yawk, Southern cracker, Texas drawl... also, Irish, Jewish, Italian, British (BBC, cockney, Liverpool/Manchester)... and a muy loco stereotypical Mexican Bandito!
Gene says, "Lots of dialects and character voices seem to pop up spontaneously during sessions...."

Thanks for the compliments on my Worse Than the Flu song. I really need it to hear that today after dealing with some less than cooperative people today that just seem to suck the life right out of me.
Actually I am the American half of this mixed marriage. We got married in 1980 and intially lived in BC for about a year and a half, then moved to the border town of Bellingham, WA for the next 25 yrs. We moved up here to the Okanagan 1 1/2 years ago. My husband and my cousin did a Bob and Doug McKenzie skit at my brother's wedding years ago (he married a Canadian too).
I am still getting over the culture shock of the price of cheese and that there are no Mexican restaurants here.
