Voice Description

Crystal has a very clear and fun sounding voice with great range, this allows for a pleasant soft sell for radio, tv commercials, as well as narration. Crystal's ability to interpret scripts and develop characters also allows her to do a variety roles, ages, and accents - anything from a young, upbeat, valley girl to a cockney grandmother or dopey thug.

She has a clear and smooth read for professional and educational voice-overs and sing song-y sexy fun for commercials and narration.

As a part time theatre instructor for children, Crystal is perfect for video games, cartoons, and anything out of the ordinary. She is a compassionate soul who can translate emotion easily and takes direction very well.
