Alice Houston

Classy, intelligent, clear, approachable and witty

Voice Description

My voice brings the best of British - elegance, intelligence, authority and clarity, with charm, honesty, approachability, and wit. Perfect for commercials for sophisticated products, healthcare, and banks, technical narration, IVR/voice prompts, and audiobooks; and British baddies in cartoons and video games. I love storytelling, whatever the purpose.
