David William Brower was born in Idaho Falls, ID to Lenis and Madeline Brower. An only child, he grew up an introvert with not many interests. In high school, he excelled in typing and music but that was about it. In his junior year, his English teacher figured out a way to turn on his creative juices. The assignment? To write a paper with the title “Why Is a Mouse When It Spins?” He got a B+ and was forever on a creative bent after that. He went to a junior college to study radio, realizing “The only time I can be an extrovert is being behind a microphone”.
After a year of college, he enlisted in the Navy as a radioman on an old, World War II diesel Submarine during Vietnam. He has been a true patriot ever since. Today, he is a member of the Patriot Guard and The Veterans of Foreign Wars. After the Navy, he was recruited by the CIA to be a communications specialist but ended up not receiving the job.
“I think maybe the huge afro in my application photo may have cost me that job.” – David Brower, voice actor.
After going back to school to study radio and television, he left college again and secured a full-time job as an on-air announcer, sales person, and play by play announcer at KNND-AM in Cottage Grove, OR. After 28 years, he finished his radio career with a 10 year stint as Corporate Vice President and General Manager for a group of radio stations in Chico, CA. Next, he was recruited to Colorado to work as an Employment Specialist with a .com job in 2001. Unfortunately that was the same year the .dot com industry tanked.
Always looking forward, he landed a new job with the 8th, largest automotive group in the country.While running their in-house advertising agency in Denver, he worked with 29 dealerships in 12 states doing all of their creative and budget work for 6 ½ years. That company left the state on April 30, 2008, leaving him unemployed. That very next day he took a “leap of faith” to start his dream job as a full-time, professional voice actor and audio producer with his own personal studio and has never looked back.
He has been a fulltime Professional Voice Actor since May 1st, 2008, providing Voice-Overs and sound design for over 275 clients around the world. He is a Professional Member in good standing with World-Voices.org, The American Advertising Federation, and The Society of Voice Arts and Sciences. His most recent professional recognition includes being a Nominee for the Voice Arts Award for “Outstanding Commercial Demo – Best Male Voice” as well as being selected as the voice over talent for a Corporate video that won “ADDY Award” for The Lavidge Company.
