Jef, Leeson, voice actor, producer/engineer, singer/songwriter
Hi, I'm Jef.

Drawn to theatre & playing in bands during school years, by my early 20s stages & studios were my career. As a performer, work took me around half the world & helped me establish a studio & small record label. Soon after, voice acting & voice over work came calling.

When not tracking dialogue, editing/mixing audio for games, toons, films, corporate videos & audio dramas, being a session producer/musician, or creating my own releases, I still get to perform live music every now & then, mostly around Ontario.

Contact me if you'd like to discuss a booking, or let's connect on Zoom, Skype or Discord. And THANK YOU for stopping by!
