A Voice To Remember….
“You have a nice voice…you should do commercials or something!” Emmanuel has been hearing some variation of this for his entire adult life, and he decided to start doing something about it in 2019. His story really started back in high school. Despite being just 16 years old and extremely quiet/shy, he was frequently asked to deliver the “closing announcement” over the store intercom due to his attention-grabbing voice. A few years later in college, he worked as a quiet storm radio personality, at times dubbed “The Voice” by his peers. Over the last decade or so since this, he’d been doing random volunteer voice work for ads, explainer videos, etc. in the midst of attaining a PhD (UGA, 2018) and working full-time in higher education. Emmanuel officially began his professional voice over career in 2020 with his first paid client.
His voice is naturally a deep, soothing baritone but flexible enough to provide different textures depending on the project. It can be described as deep, authoritative, soothing, natural, warm, friendly, clear, trustworthy, and declarative.
Emmanuel’s voice goes well with e-learners, narration, audiobooks, commercials, public service announcements, and more! Equipped with a healthy knowledge of both microphone technique and audio editing best practices, he possesses the talent, knowledge and work ethic to help take your vision to the next level. His clients thus far include Georgia College & State University, ProGeorgia, and the Black Farmers’ Network.
