Mike has a youthful, friendly, conversational sound and specializes in commercials, explainer videos, corporate narrations / training, e-learning, and IVR / message on-hold.

IVR/Message On-hold

You may never guess it from my voice, but I was born and raised in the South. Down here we’re known for southern hospitality, sweet tea (is there any other kind?), and talking your ear off if you let us! We also take pride in a job well done and treating people how we’d like to be treated. You can rest assured that it’s the same approach I take with every voice over project.

I’m a seasoned pro with years of experience helping clients effectively deliver their message. My job is to bring your carefully crafted voice over script to life and that’s what I enjoy most and do best. Whether you’re looking for a friendly, unassuming guy next door, a youthful, upbeat vibe, or simply smooth and sophisticated, I’ve got you covered.

Mike is a permanent entry on my ‘preferred voice’ list because he brings to the table more than great tone and delivery - he thoroughly understands the collaborative process. When I ask him to introduce some subtle nuance into his delivery, he’s happy to comply, quick to understand, and usually nails the tweak in the very next take.

Jim Zangmeister, Zang

We looked to Mike for a fun, natural voiceover -- of an animated robot. The right voice can bring an animated character to life, and Mike delivered with plenty of charm. Our clients at Virginia Air & Space Center and NASA Langley were over the moon!

Martin C. Walsh, The Vacation Channel

We had the pleasure of working with Mike on a commercial voiceover project and couldn’t have been happier. He knew the right questions to ask beforehand, was super easy to work with, and nailed it in a single take. He delivered a clean audio file to us very quickly with encoded markers. We’ve worked with a lot of voiceover artists and have never had it go this quickly or smoothly. We’ll definitely work with him again in the future.

Jamie Brown, Leeway Films

Mike delivered above and beyond what I had hoped for in the voiceover for my video project. He brought a sense of gravitas that boomed out over the crowd of 87,000+ and helped set the perfect tone. Plus, he is very easy to work with and works efficiently without sacrificing talent or skill — just an all around great experience.

Alan Brazzell, Blue Cape Creative

Mike is a true professional in every sense of the word. Easy to schedule with, gracious and accommodating during the session, spot-on with his delivery, and on-time and on-budget with the finished product. What more can you ask for?

Joe Weunski, Tungsten Creative Group

This was our first time hiring voiceover talent and we couldn’t have found a better partner. Mike helped explain the process from beginning through final delivery. We were very happy with the quality, professionalism and his ability to understand the tone of our project through his voiceover.

Kevin Smith, TrindGroup

Mike has helped greatly with our new phone prompts. We had almost 20 scripts that he recorded within a week. I’m definitely impressed with Mike’s professionalism and desire to get everything just perfect for us. I would highly recommend his services.

Katie Martin, CoachComm

Mike is a true professional. He jumped in on a project which was in danger of becoming derailed, and I’m convinced Mike’s voiceover is what sealed the deal with the client. Throughout the process, Mike communicated at every step and delivered his part of the project ahead of schedule and on budget. We gladly welcome the opportunity to work with Mike in the future.

Don Crow, Verge Pipe Media

I own a video production company and have used Mike in several projects. He is always a pleasure to work with and is very genuine. He studies the script and is well prepared for all of our projects. Mike's professionalism speaks volumes and the end results are fantastic. We will continue to use Mike for as many projects as we can.

Steven Dixon, Steven Dixon Media

Mike produced a quality track for our Columbus Blue support video. It had thousands of views in the first week and we credit it to a curated, high-quality track we worked with Mike to create. We will look forward to having Mike join our new projects and help add diversity into our campaigns.

Lucas Shaffer, Stand and Stretch

Mike has worked as the voice of our Kinnucan's training program for the past 9 months. His work has been timely, professional, and perfect for the training of our team!

Chris Wasson, Kinnucan's Specialty Outfitters

Working with Mike was very easy and we were very pleased with the radio spot he did for us. While we didn’t track how customers heard about the special we were offering on calcium scoring, I have no doubt that our numbers quadrupling for the month of February was due in part to the recording Mike did.
