Mike Broderick

Hi. I am an American VO Artist based in the United Kingdom.

My accent is General American (no regional accent) and neutral. My voice print has been described by others as Compassionate, Assured, Knowledgeable, and Engaging.

My voice and vocal style are well-suited to all manner of corporate, commercial, and charitable voice-overs, and I have voiced projects for the likes of Saucony, Louis Vuitton, the Foothill Gold Line, Deep-Secure, Mediacom, and Realstar.

I provide a fast, friendly and professional service from my personal studio and can provide finished audio in .wav, AIFF, or mp3 formats by email, Dropbox, Google Drive, or other cloud services.

For remote direction, I have Bodalgo Call, Source-Connect Now, and phone patch capability via Skype.

I have my own acoustically-treated personal studio, equipped with CAD M179 and Rode NT1 (2013) microphones and Focusrite Itrack Solo and Shure X2U audio interfaces.

I have strong cross-cultural understanding and sensitivity (having lived in the northern and southern United States, Sri Lanka, and England), extensive experience working with businesses of all sizes (having worked in Economic Development for over 15 years prior to starting in voice-over), and teaching experience (having served as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Sri Lanka where I taught English as a Second Language to prospective teachers).

I am a graduate of Tufts University with Bachelor of Arts Degrees (with honors) in English and Classical Studies.
