Mature, warm, approachable baritone

Voice Description

I have a warm and friendly baritone voice - mature, knowledgeable, helpful and trustworthy.

I produce excellent corporate, industrial, and medical e-learning, training, and promotional narrations; commercials; and documentary and museum exhibit narrations.

I do impeccable work with quick turnaround; I am versatile, with a wide range of emotional, tonal, textural and pacing capabilities, and I am easily directable.

I have an excellently equipped home studio, in which I can produce fully edited, finished vocal tracks; or I can work with you from your choice of several professional studios.
