The demos are all nice. Kind of laid back which I gather is your style.

I'd kill the studio equipment box because nobody who hires you is likely to care. I'd consider putting one or two of your videos* parallel to the audio demos and maybe taking your "Availability" notes such as: "Warm, gentle, comfortable, authentic, yet authoritative when required" and put them on lines above or below your featured demo/videos. I'd also rewrite that line to be more positive: "Warm, gentle, comfortable, authentic, and authoritative." You can be last thing even while being the others.

Picky... I'd consider cueing the YouTube videos closer to your first spoken word if there's a long music bed before your voice. Those crazy, impatient buyers may want instant information.

*major airline...cool!

I agree with everything Bruce said.

Additionally, I might put the "if you had a dollar for every dollar" ad a little closer to the front of your demo, maybe second or third. You have several mellow cuts in a row, so that could establish versatility before you went back to the mellower cuts. It sounds great, though!

I kind of wonder about the "An Honest Voice" slogan. Can we discern ethics through vocal timbre? What if they want you to play a sleazy used car salesman? Maybe a slogan emphasizing that your voice sells product, you have fast turnaround, some practical benefit you bring. Does Burger King still use "Have It Your Way?" Maybe that's public domain now. Or no slogan at all.

Sounds great and I like the layout, too. Is this a Squarespace? I'd like to update from the HTML site I made myself, but I haven't found a template I like on the major services.

Thanks Art for the kind words and suggestions. Will consider what you wrote.
The producer chose the order of the cuts on the demo.

I don't know if it is squarespace or whatnot. Got it through Joe Davis - www.voiceactorwebsites.com

They were very easy to work with and very professional. Very happy with their work.

Best,
