I bring a naturally confident, mature, and authoritative voice that still has the flexibility for most characters. Beginning in my youth as a speech\drama\debate high school nerd, as a voracious reader, through periods as a machinist, in sales and retail, parenting, and ultimately in middle management, recruiting, and IT, I have gained insight which allows me to bring a perspective to voice work that reflects a full understanding of the text. With a healthy, if dry, sense of humor I enjoy working with anything from commercial text to children's books to science fiction. My natural speaking voice and technical background is also ideal for technical documentation, or educational material.

Comments from clients and rights holders... "...you are professional, versatile and production-oriented. You completed a fairly complex project more than a month ahead of schedule without any errors. Whereas the above are attributes one should expect from a professional narrator, the reality is that few embody them to the degree that you do." "Tim was a real pleasure to work with-- his attention to detail, clean and engaging voice, and dramatic presentation made for an amazing audiobook! And all delivered promptly and courteously...Tim's a true professional!" "Not only was your work amazing, but I felt new life in the book that I have spent so much time pouring over and working hard on." Comments from listeners... " I enjoyed the pulp fiction, especially the narrator. Tim Harper did the dialogue and narration in the style of 1950’s radio and the good old Saturday matinees. I hope to hear more of Mr Harper’s work, Stellar!" "The performance is excellent, well-paced, and serves the story well. All the characters are distinct and fun to listen to. The narrator does a great job making the story come alive in the mind of the reader. Definitely want to hear more from this narrator."
