A couple weeks ago, my wife and I were driving home from work listening to clips of voiceover talent for this explainer video. We both agreed on the one you will hear. We found out later that the voice we selected is Dean Wendt, one of the guys who did the voice of Barney the dinosaur on the popular kid’s TV show. Judging by the 1,900 five-star reviews for voiceover projects, Dean’s fame for being the voice of Barney is obviously paying off for him.

Lonny likes to kid that his third grade teacher may have summed him up best with a note sent home on his report card. “Lonny is a daydreamer and he’s getting worse each day. He complains of a stomach ache a lot and I don’t think he likes school much either.”
