Deep, Ageless, Character or Narrator, Sarcastic
My natural speaking voice is mid-range to deep, but I usually make it deeper when doing narrations or dominant characters. I've learned how to go high as well without sounding falsetto, unless that's what you want of course. I'm from the Boston area originally and actively deleting my local accent has given me exceptional control. Also companies I've worked with in the past have often been impressed with how easily I can pronounce difficult or foreign words with little to no coaching.

My Voice Experience
My first voiceover job was at age 14, when I provided the narration to a promotional video for a company called Slotfinder, which I also animated. This began a trend of narrating the projects I edited. In film school, I was constantly tapped by my peers for their movies and animations. During the senior show, my voice was featured in some way in about a third of the projects, and many of these went on to play in festivals worldwide.
I've done a number of commercials for Fafama Auto Sales. I narrated a short documentary called Losing Our Sons, which was screened in Washington DC. Through one client, I've been featured in ads and promos for Housing Works Rhode Island, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Amazon. Recently my voice was featured prominently in Domino's Pizza's Voter Bootcamp campaign on Facebook and and a choose-your-own-adventure styled concept album by the band Canadian Invasion.
