Classic, Smooth, Warm, Sincere, Persuasive
I am a mature voice-over talent with a voice that is classic, smooth, warm, sincere, and persuasive. I have also been described as having “that classic American voice that walks a fine line between elegance and folksiness.”
In winning 1st Place in an Edge Studio Documentary Script Recording Contest, the judges said of my voice, "Its warmth and clarity will maintain the listener's interest without overpowering the visuals."
