Voice Description

As an actor, singer and linguist, I have always used my voice. I love Accents, Dialects and Languages and have used many in TV roles and Voiceover work over the years.

Favorite dialects include Various British, Scots, Irish, New York, Long Island, Italian, Chicago, Indian, Russian, Chinese and Mexican. Languages I can read are French, Russian, German and Italian.
