Warm, friendly expressive alto, excellent diction, 20s-40s
Clients call me when they need a smooth, warm voice with conviction and great diction, or a comic touch, or that unusual hook that makes a listener tune in. My voice can be sexy, serious, funny or sad; it makes people call their mother, book a romantic dinner for two, laugh out loud, or donate to a children's fund.
My talents range from commercial work, to corporate presentations, as well as straight narration (especially documentary), and personalized projects (i.e. meditation recordings). I love to collaborate and offer writing and translation services to enhance your project.
