easygoing, indie, alternative, tech, natural, accessible
My natural delivery style lends itself to work that is unique and versatile. I tend to excel in indie, softer-sell or storytelling, humor being where I am most naturally comfortable with wide-ranging emotion being in close proximity.
In commercials, I can give a wide range of delivery and expression.
For narration, I am conscious of getting an emotional delivery, appropriate for the material.
For presentations/on-hold, I can give a sound, professional, yet younger delivery.
Recently, I have been doing much more work in the tech/digital category as it seems to fit the "engineer" mold.
My voice has been called, "Prominent, yet not intimidating. Unique, but very accessible."

I actually kind of got into this by accident. I have a degree in International Studies and ended up getting hired as a weekend overnight DJ. Many years later, here we are.
I continue to work on technique with my peers in Portland and with Tom Chantler, a voice pro from San Francisco.
