Max Raphael

When I grow up, I want to have Max Raphael's voice.

Raphael is probably best known for narrating the History Channel reality/science series Modern Marvels. He can adjust his voice to the perfect tone for voicing very serious copy (for, say, a documentary about the tragedy of 11 September 2001) or more lighthearted fare (say, for a program about manufacturing snack foods). Having done voiceover work on an amateur basis, I can tell you that pitching your voice to be appropriate for such a variety of narration styles is not easy.
