Retail sample for The Meditation Manual by Gray Miller. The tone is intended to be engaging yet informative.

I am best known for a strong masculine voice with a tonality influenced by my experience with medieval choir singing (bass) as well as traditional and improvisational theater. I have extensive experience with non-fiction narration with an emphasis on informative and educational content. I am currently branching out into some fictional narratives as well and would be open to more of that kind of work. My theatrical background includes comedic roles. My lifelong love of improv theater has included experience and study in classical forms (Commedia d’ell Arte) as well as short-form “theater games which includes training with Comedy Sportz, Jodi Cohen, and the Monkey Business Institute. I've listed some specialty roles and narration types as a starting point below. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
