"Smooth, pleasant, adult male voice that is Warm, friendly"

Who is Woody? So, I started doing voice over as a full time profession in 2019. Not that I hadn't done some previous work. I have always been a knave and an unabashed actor in my own with an uncanny sense of humor and sarcasm (the later I keep in check with... well). Unbeknownst to me, I was introduced to voice over by a radio personality and from there it took off. So here I am. Hire me. That's the least you can do for my mentor. ;-)

My voice has been described as strong, authoritative, confident, very pleasant and smooth with great delivery. Conversational and warm.

So what does that mean? I bring that into all my work. I love using my voice and have over 25 years of experience with face-to-face customer contact, 6 years direct phone contact and have voiced well over 500 voiceovers ranging from Commercial TV spots to explainer videos to character voices.

Before and during the process, I will:
- Make sure that you and I are on the same page by reviewing the scripts, your directions, and always communicate with you
- Send you samples if the job requires it
- Produce your voiceover, usually within 24 hours (sooner if possible)
- Edit and master all files in 193K MP3 and 24-bit/48k WAV files or any other file format you need!
- Either upload the files or provide a link to the files

Some of my best clients include Greenworks Tools, Serta Mattress, Lowes Home Improvement, various real estate developers and agents, Illinois BASSET, Monument Grills, Canadian Cozie and I do a LOT of explainer video voice over.

- I usually deliver in 24 hours for projects under 1000 words.
- Commercial and broadcast rights are extra!
- All revisions are extra. Please see my Terms of Service document here on Upwork
