He Is Down-to-Earth and Relatable
Derek brings a fun and fresh engagement to his work as a male voice over artist. His down-to-earth demeanor and friendly laid-back style make his voice over delivery relatable – as though you were having a conversation with a trusted friend. He’s a jeans and t-shirt guy who also cleans up well and can rock a razor sharp suit. Derek’s a genuine storyteller, able to bring a fresh perspective to everything from tv and radio commercials to explainer videos, e-learning, audiobooks and brand messaging. His ability to lead an audience to connect with your copy comes from a genuine interest in the world around him. He knows what listeners are looking for and can deliver it with ease.
He’s A Technician on Both Sides of the Mic
Derek is a technician both in and out of the booth. He has been fascinated with computers, software development and sound engineering literally since childhood (he began programming at 16). His experience in marketing technology for large brands like Microsoft, Mayo Clinic, GE Healthcare, Aspen Snowmass, and more gives him a unique perspective into how brands communicate with their customers. His adept ability to dial into a script is enhanced by seeing brands from the inside and understanding how they work.
This understanding and love of all things technical has lent Derek a passion for teaching others both by narrating elearning projects as well as non-fiction business and self help audiobooks. His passion and curiosity for how the world works reflects in his narration and helps listeners stay absorbed in the material.
