A Short Biography
During his eleven years as an audio recording engineer, Lee Crooks' clients sometimes asked him to voice their projects. Eventually, in the early 1990's, he left engineering to become a full-time voiceover artist. Since then, Lee has been one of Chicago's busiest voice actors, performing thousands of commercial and industrial voiceovers for countless national and regional companies. Several projects he's voiced have won industry awards for their producers and he's been profiled twice in SCREEN magazine. In Chicago, Lee is perhaps most widely known as "The Voice of the El" for The Windy City's elevated trains and buses. Currently, he can be heard across the country on spots for Walmart, Beltone, Kellogg's Froot Loops and True Value, as well as narrations for ABBVie, Accenture, Navistar, Pearson Publishing, Boeing, and Kohler. Lee narrated the Discovery Channel's "America's Deadliest Storm: The Galveston Hurricane-1900", and recently narrated three Thomas the Tank Engine children's books.
