About Wade

Wade moved to New York in 1997 with a dream in his head and some money in his pocket. After the money ran out, Wade had another dream in his head; getting that money back by using his speaking voice. Wade’s first break came when he spoke the tagline for David Gray’s “White Ladder” in a national TV spot. Besides being the voice of Avatar Studios as well as the host of “Avatar Studios Presents,” he has spoken for The Sports Emmy Awards, the Voice of God for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and various other regional TV spots. He is available for your voice over needs.
