Here’s my short biography...

Hi, I’m Peter and I'm a voiceover talent!

Now, if you feel the need to punish yourself, here is my slightly longer biography…

Before Madonna sang about her virginity, when making a phone call from the road meant plunking twenty five cents into a phone booth and back when getting "on-line" meant waiting to check-out at the grocery store, I began my career as a male voiceover talent and live announcer.

I am celebrating my 35th year as a professional male voice-over talent.

As America's Friendly, Neighborhood Voiceover Talent, my broad vocal range allows me my global clients, who range from Fortune 500 Companies to companies who think $500 is a fortune.

Some of the more well known brands I've voiced for include General Electric (GE), Kraft Foods, Public Broadcasting Service, Shell Oil, Duracell Batteries, Starz Network, Papa John's Pizza and Fox Sports Networks.

Local companies to international brands, I proudly work with them all.

People have told me I am a natural born storyteller. From my conversational everyman voice to my hard sell straight announcer performances, my voice is most often heard in media productions like:

• Commercials (Radio & TV)
• Corporate Narrations
• Explainer Videos
• Live Announcing, Hosting & Moderating
• Political Commercials
• Broadcast Promo (Radio & TV)
• Message On-hold

A native of Buffalo, NY, I grew up in the Nickel City - I even worked in radio there at WLVL, for, like a week. I truly developed my broadcasting and voice-over skills in Dayton, Ohio at WVUD-FM as a top rated disc jockey and then as a commercial producer for the station.

I produce my voiceover projects through my audio production company, audio'connell Voiceover Talent which is a division of O'Connell Communications, LLC. 

audio'connell also provides casting services for clients looking for professional female voiceover and audio production services for national and international clients. The voice over needs of foreign language clients are served through another O'Connell-owned company, International Voice Talents.

I also wrote The Voice Over Entrance Exam. The free e-book examines the business and performance realities of becoming a voice-over talent and maintaining a career among a spirited field of established voiceover professionals. 

The Voice Over Workshop is another one of my companies. In private one-on-one voiceover sessions in my studio or via Skype, I teach new and experienced voice talents what I've learned after nearly 30 years in the voice over business and critical stuff voice actors need to know to get paid voice jobs.

daytonI received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Radio and Television Communication from the University of Dayton (OH) - no one is quite sure how - nonetheless the official diploma can be found somewhere in my Cary, North Carolina home (just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina) where I live with my wife and children.
