Hi, I’m Mike Lenz.
I love being a voice actor and helping clients give voice to their projects, but my life didn’t always look this way. In fact 15 years ago my life looked a lot different than it does today.
Back then I was running my small brick and mortar business and serving as Mayor of my hometown. I served in politics for about 10 years and, having always been a creative person, I enjoyed the communication part of serving as Mayor – speaking to groups, and doing radio and television interviews.
After leaving politics, I had a lot of free time to explore other passions. One of those passions – screenwriting – led me to a filmmakers group, and at one of our meetings, a marketing representative from a voice training company came and passed out flyers. I decided to check out the company and as soon as I took my first lesson I was hooked.
I’m thrilled to now be able to work full-time recording audiobooks, working with major publishers and indie authors. With close to 100 titles, I’ve had the pleasure of narrating in genres ranging from fiction, entertainment, science, and children’s literature to Christian, business, self-help, true crime and history. I love bringing nonfiction and fiction stories to life.
When not narrating I work with clients on eLearning projects, explainer and corporate videos, on-hold messaging, real estate videos, and commercials – all from my professional home recording studio.
As much as I love helping my clients, it’s also very important to me to help others who might not be as far along on their journey. That’s why I wrote my book, created my online course and launched my VO podcast. I meet so many incredible people and I’m thrilled to share what I’ve learned and learn from them as well.
Thanks again for visiting, and please connect with me. I’d love to talk with you about your next audiobook project!
WHAT MY CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
I did a podcast this morning. The person downloaded the audio version of Accountable Leaders. She began by asking, “who did you get to read your audiobook? It was amazing! The best I’ve ever heard and I listen to a lot of them.” Thank for doing a great job. Appreciate your support of my work.

Mike’s voice aligned exactly with what I had hoped to put out there: passion and excitement in the reading, and clarity of my message. I could not be happier!
– Greg Sausaman, Author Inside The Box
Mike Lenz did a fantastic job with his narration. I loved his smooth voice. The story did not need much dramatization and I felt like Mike was perfect as his rhythm and pace were intriguing enough to keep the listener engaged, without taking away from the natural drama that takes place in the story.

I loved getting whisked away to New York City old and new in this book. The story is compelling and engaging – I was excited every time I had a free minute to press play. The narrator’s smooth voice told the story perfectly. Such a nice escape in these crazy times!
