Voice Description

Hello there!
Thanks for taking a few moments to learn about me and what I have to offer your next project. If you need a versatile, stylish, comfortable and very easy-to-listen-to voice, I would love to audition for you. I will help you tell your story with an ear-catching, oh-so-memorable sound!

Find me by text 206.349.7074 or email

I will create a tone to match your vision. Crisp, energetic, reassuring, friendly, corporate, confident, sincere, soothing, sassy or sarcastic.

You'll appreciate the "real person" quality I bring to everything from explainer videos to policy guides to rockin' new smart phone apps.

A voice that enlightens, motivates and sells: When you want to make the pitch, secure the sale, raise the funding, or tug the heartstrings.

I will recruit support with an easy, light-hearted pitch... or an emotional and heartfelt appeal. You'll hear classy, comfortable, sophisticated, stylish, savvy.

I can give you "soccer mom" or "baby-boomer", senior citizen or senior executive.
