Voice Description

Here's why choosing my voice for your next project could make your job a little easier:

Commercial Reads That Generate Leads
I voiced a radio spot for a new condo complex. The condo developer heard the spot on the air and thought my read wouldn’t resonate with the target audience. I was asked to do a re-record the following Monday. But when I arrived at the studio, the session had been canceled. Why? Because homebuyers who'd heard the original spot had bombarded the developer with calls all weekend. So the developer decided to stick with the original (and gladly paid me for the canceled session).

Critically Acclaimed Audiobook Narration
Polity Audio chose me to narrate the audiobook version of "When the Rivers Run Dry" by Fred Pearce. Packed with foreign place names and long passages of facts and figures, this well-researched book was a challenge. But AudioFile magazine's review says my narration "turns the endless minutiae into listenable material, and from it all emerges the shocking lesson the author intends."

Outstanding Customer Service
Since 2007, Walsh & Associates has used my voice for video narrations. They always send me the script a few days before the session. Occasionally I find wording that needs clarification, and I call it to their attention. This reduces the likelihood of a costly and time-wasting round of corrections after the original session. Recently, after I notified Margaret Slawin of Walsh & Associates about one of these errors in a script, she wrote back to say: "THANKS for checking. This is why we all love you as our narrator!!!"
