Deep, Distinctive, Sexy, Raspy, Fun, Warm, Smooth, Characters out the Wazoooo
I have a deep distinctive sound with a tad of nasal undertone that captures the listener's ear. I am a professional actress for many decades and I create characters galore for radio, TV, film, theater and live events! Professionally recording voiceovers for 30+ years, I have a home studio. I am experienced with animation and cartoon character voice overs… my specialty, actually. I am also proficient with a variety of male and female humans, animals, fantasy characters for video games for the gaming industry, as well. Did you say talking toys? I say yes, book me to voice your talking toy today. eLearning, corporate training and website voice over experience, too. I did mention I have been doing this awhile, right? My point is after a while, you get booked on a variety of projects, especially if you are versatile, like myself. And I take direction well. OK I also voice projects for phone answering systems and another favorite is audio books for children (It’s the crazy, fun voices I love to do). Movie trailers, station id’s and for a small fee I will leave messages on your mother’s answering machine! lol What I am saying is…I have a voice for any project, so check out my website for samples, demos and clips. Deep distinctive sound… goes from there….to little kids and everyone in-between!
