Todd is usually the one doing all the talking, but here’s what his clients have to say about his work.

I've hired Todd on several occasions to read voice over for my 3D animation projects. I've always found Todd to be great to work with, very thorough and committed to high quality work. He takes direction and critique really well and he's always enthusiastic when offered a job. However my views only go so far, the real measure of Todd's work is when I play portfolio samples with Todd's voice to my clients and without hesitation they say "we want this guy".Tony Sealy, Singapore Creative Director, Filmmaker, Technical 3D Animation, Executive Producer

About Me

Todd Barsness

About Todd

While Todd Barsness has been a professional voice talent for more than 35 years, his career calling came at the young age of 10 years old. While at the main exhibit hall of the county fair, a local radio station was broadcasting live, and captured the attention and heart of an adolescent Todd. From that day forward, he began his informal communication training, reading out loud for hours and listening to late night Chicago DJs to mimic their styles.

Todd’s love of verbal communication later grew into a media career, including radio announcer, program director, and station manager. Focusing solely now on voice-over work, Todd is able to use his oral abilities to teach, train, inform, and inspire. He prides himself on being trustworthy, credible, warm, and believable, all descriptions clients use to describe not only Todd’s voice but also his character.

When Todd is not in the studio, you’ll find him with his wife of 32 years, Becki, and their six sons, ages 12 to 27. Despite his love for time with his large family, Todd is extremely accessible, responding to most inquiries within an hour of receiving. His dependable and hard-working nature shines with his clients, as Todd is eager to use his voice to help meet their teaching, training, and coaching needs.
