Strong, soothing, assuring, humorous, edgy, funny
My voice is rich and strong, full bodied with strong resonance, deep, soothing, and warm for narrations. It can be rough, edgy, and masculine, or fun, enthusiastic, and upbeat for commercial products.
Presentations are enhanced with precise diction and the professionalism of a lawyer, doctor, or CEO. I have a very friendly voice which helps people trust and can add a humorous tone which brings about a smile.
I will give you many different takes, in a short time. Everything from the shortest commercial, to phone messages, to narration, to audio-books; all of this is very rewarding and enjoyable work for me. I encourage you to listen to my demos.
