The Vox of Hospitality - I speak food, booze, and travel.
It's 2008 and Neil P. Strawder was bitten by the media bug when he and his bbq business were featured in the L. A. Times food section. After that, he was no stranger to being on various "best of" lists.
His first television appearance happened because his wife wrote to the show "Over Your Head" for an office remodel. It was a trifecta of fixing the office, feeding some folks, and making the wife happy all on camera.
"Neil, you killed it! Thanks for the quick turnaround and that second take option."
As time went on, Neil was sought out for his memorable yet easygoing style. He was featured on BBQ Pitmasters, The Ultimate BBQ Showdown, BBQ Crawl, The Great Food Truck Race, Man Fire Food, and various local news segments. Being comfortable in front of the camera led to national commercials and a special appearance in The Wonderland Murders. He was also a spokesperson for Fresh & Easy markets and Cabo Wabo Tequila.
"This is amazing - you nailed it and that was such a quick turnaround. Great job, Neil!"
Then in 2022, after a whirlwind of tv appearances and speaking engagements, Neil and his family needed a change. He returned to his roots in Galveston, Texas. Once settled, he decided to learn voice acting to build on his experience of being a spokesperson and doing a few commercials.
He enrolled in A VO's Journey Elite Academy and he was hooked. Learning and honing his voiceover craft suited him to a tee.
Neil needed something to make him stand out from others in an ever-growing field. With his background in the hospitality industry and being a spokesperson for other national food and beverage brands, a niche was born.
Hospitable Vox is a blending of his love for all things hospitable and being able to talk about it in a relaxed, sultry tone. So far some of his clients have included Home Depot, Target, Gatorade, and Sonos and he's just getting started.
