I am the voice of multiple private, secure military online trainings which require long hours of recording, editing and mastering of the audio files. This has given me experience with endurance reading required for lengthy scripts or audio books.

In 2007, I was selected to record the audio tracks for a Chemical, Biological, and Radiological computer-based training for a private client. I had co-designed the educational content for this project which required approximately 4 months of voiceover recording work ranging from 30 minutes to 4 hours a day. A number of the recording sessions also included direction from a subject matter expert via phone patch.
