John F. Carroll is a professional voice actor, writer and director.
I can deliver whatever style or genre you need for your specific copy! Whether you need a fun contemporary performance or an empathetic yet positive tone, when you hire me, you can expect dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism!
I have a versatile vocal range and can perform warm and deep baritone for narration, young and energetic to approachable and appealing for commercial and promos. I can perform a multitude of characters for animation and video games, from teenagers to seniors and everywhere in-between--all grounded in reality with playable actions.
I love my VO COACHES and am proud to have trained with some of the best in the business:
