All you other Europeans, you’re just pale imitations of Paul Strikwerda, who’s agile enough to do English with a Dutch accent, but also to do English with an English accent, during which he sounds a little like… John Cleese.
Paul Strikwerda bills himself as speaking with a “neutral” English Accent. And, having taught Accent Acquisition at NYU and Brooklyn College, I have to agree. His accent is what I would term Global-English-Neutral.
I wish to congratulate you on all your work in the narrating world, very impressive. I have also traveled through your website, really amazing.
His delivery is almost always spot on. Paul is one of the few people in this business that actually make my job EASIER.
We fell in love with his accent. It was as if he had written our book.
We were absolutely thrilled with the voice that Paul has provided for our television campaign. We really appreciated his quick turn around time and professionalism. We will work with Paul again without hesitation.
Seven reasons to
1. European Sound
Okay, you don’t want a posh British voice or an in-your-face American sound. My neutral English accent speaks to a global audience. I’m also one of the very few native Dutch voice-over pros working in North America. I’m a U.S. citizen so if you’re in the States it’s easy to hire and pay me!
2. I Listen to you
Voice-overs get paid to talk, but I like to listen before I begin recording. Any text can be read in a million different ways. I won’t start to read until I know what you need.
3. Crystal-clear Audio
Avoid cheap amateurs recording at the kitchen table. My top-of-the-line equipment and soundproof studio give you ready-to-use audio, 100% free from hiss, rumble, and the neighbor’s dog.
With 30+ years of experience, I need no hand-holding. Whether it’s a commercial, an eLearning course, a documentary, or an audio tour, clients like Philips, Google, and Novartis trust me to deliver their message.
5. Reasonable Rates
I’m a non-union voice, committed to making sure that my added value is always higher than my rate.
6. Trusted Voice
I’m an industry expert. With over 39K subscribers, my weekly blog is one of the most influential and frequently discussed blogs in the voice-over community.
7. Peace of Mind
Happy customers are my best credentials, and I will go out of my way to make you one of them. Contact me, today!
