Voice Description

What everyone says about my voice is this: it's unique, smooth, and pleasing to the ear. Along with this, I give a very believable, natural presentation (but I can also be Mr. Announcer-guy or give a high-speed tag if that's what the script calls for).

My most natural presentations varies between Joe Average and warm, soulful and sexy.

Judge for yourself. I've tried to give a good variety of examples on my demo.
