Who is Scott?

A lifelong performer, Scott is an American male voice actor with 15+ years of experience as working voice over talent. He’s also been a musician (singer / programmer), and a marketer in the Silicon Valley tech scene. Nowadays, he’s behind the mics day and night and does normally short- and mid-form work: corporate and commercial, also character and promo reads.

Listening / direction? Editing / post?

Live-directed sessions work just like conference calls which happen to be getting recorded, with playback options available mid-way through if/as needed. Alternatively, Scott can roll self-directed. Buyers’ preferences vary so he regularly works both ways, also sometimes covers editing / QA to deliver finished, broadcast-quality voice tracks. Not mixing or full production, though. He can’t mix his way out of a paper bag.

Contracts, insurance etc.?

NDAs and ICAs are routine. Subterreign Media (Scott’s parent company) carries liability coverage that normally meets or exceeds clients’ requirements. Moreover, he’s able to meet the needs of those with even the strictest of security protocols, including those in spaces such as finance, healthcare and government who need to maintain compliance with standards like HIPAA, FINRA and GDPR.

Rates?

Every job’s custom quoted and negotiated, but always competitively. Please get in touch to discuss your needs. Looking forward to connecting!

Payment methods?

Online, Scott accepts direct deposits (ACH), P2P transfers (Zelle, Venmo), credit cards (PayPal) and cryptocurrencies (BTC, BCH and select others on request). Offline, checks and cash are welcome.
