Arlene Cooke

Crisp, Smooth, Luxurious, Jamaican accent

Voice Description

A uniquely blended "world" voice, perfect for international companies and those with a global, multicultural audience. A richly textured American sound with international flair.

My dual nationality (American and Jamaican) background and international experience brings you a voice with crisp, standard diction that is understandable and comfortable for your international audience. When needed, I can also ramp up my native Jamaican accent for a rhythmic, tropical sound that evokes sunshine, calm blue seas and a little "Irie!"

Additional Skills

Almost 20 years as a professional psychologist allow me to bring a calm, trustworthy voice to corporate and industrial narrations and also make me intimately familiar with complex psychiatric, psychological, and general medical terminology and phrasing.

My naturally relaxed, laidback personality is spot on when you want a friendly, warm sound.

With my digital home studio and ready access to professional studios nearby, I am able to provide both rapid turnaround and reliable quality.

I would be happy to talk with you about how we can work together to provide a professional sounding project within your budget.
