British, authoritative, charming, character voices
My natural speaking voice sounds clear, confident and educated. Its tone can be gentle or authoritative. The accent is British RP (think BBC or Kate Winslet) which is commonly associated with luxury goods in the United States.

My Voice Experience
Over the past six or so years, I've lent my voice to a good range of projects, some live, mostly pre-recorded:
I've narrated upbeat reels for Sesame Street and more serious stuff concerning HIV/AIDS for Barefoot Workshops, a non-profit, on behalf of the U.N.
I've helped tell people's stories - whether it's a documentary about the working women in Hiroshima after the atomic bomb was dropped, or a more lighthearted fashion reel.
Other projects include helping a private client with a meditative audio visualisation for a ballroom dancing competition; performing live VOs for fashion shows; being a giggling nun in a scene with Mira Sorvino; pretending to be a ditzy blonde from Louisiana who reads the weather on the radio; plus other promos and interstitials for a offbeat and quirky art show on PBS.
Next on my VO projects wishlist: I'd love to develop and perform character voices, but I'd also love to use my natural speaking voice (British RP) in a commercial.
Everyone I've worked with has thanked me for a job well done and has been impressed with my fast turnaround time. (Fifty takes? Not this girl!)
