Voice Description

I have a natural, warm, charming and engaing voice with a soft and clear Scottish accent. This has been a popular choice for telephone voice and the voice that companies use to speak to their customers. In tone, this voice can remain light and conversational, or become professional and instructional. Perfect for presentations, corporate work and promotional work.

Additionally, I have a flexible register and can drop into a slightly lower tone that can become either sexy or smooth and would suit narration or commercials.

With regards to animation, video games and drama projects, I am a trained actress with excellent access to emotion and can voice characters in a detailed and uniqe way. My accent allows me to range from quirky, fun and comedic, to wry or challenging, through to dangerous, dark and gritty.
