Audiobook narration is my profession, though I do plenty of other voice work. I've narrated and produced over 45 titles on ACX - all of the samples in my profile are from audiobooks I've had published. Please check them out! I am part of the Graphic Audio roster of voice actors. www.graphicaudio.net My current recording setup consists of a Rode NT1 cardioid condenser microphone, a Focusrite Scarlett audio interface, a MacBook, and a sound-treated recording space. I can do many foreign accents reasonably well (British RP, Russian, Middle Eastern, Japanese, Spanish in particular) many regional US accents (Neutral, Southern, Trans-Atlantic, Brooklyn, even a little North Atlantic/Maine) and shine portraying teenage to young adult males, snooty/eccentric British men, strange, dwarf/gnome/goblin/fey types, and gender neutral/ambiguous characters. In general, my voice is best described as 'youthful/young adult'; but I'd also say off-the-wall, subdued, tragic, enthusiastic, treacherous, conniving, articulate, smooth, adaptive (and so on, and so on) qualify, as well. I excel at bringing a sense of realism and relatability to complex characters. I see myself coming into my own narrating fiction; specifically, fantasy/science fiction and romance novels. Business/religious nonfiction, memoirs, and poetry are also in my wheelhouse. But none of this is as good an introduction as the samples you can find on www.ryanhaugen.com.
