My voice talent rates (pretty much) explained

Seldom are any two projects the same. Each project has its variables: broadcast vs non-broadcast, size of audience/market, term of usage, exclusivity or non-exclusivity, number of mediums in which voice will be featured, commercial vs non-profit.

My typical base rates are listed below. These serve as a reference so that you have a general idea of what it costs to work with me. When you contact me with a request, I will provide you with a firm quote for your project, including variables like re-reads for script changes, additional copy, expanded usage, etc.

My agents are adept at determining appropriate rates for any manner of voice talent project, and I encourage you to contact them. They handle all the business details with impeccable ethics while allowing you and me to focus on the creative process. Contact information for my agents and myself appears on my Contact page.
