I have received feedback that I have a very "clean" sound with good diction for announcer roles.
I have received positive feedback on copy where the specs request: Real guy, conversational, sincere, professional.
Working in the technology field, I am good at performing copy with technical terms, particularly electronics-related vocabulary.
I also have received positive feedback that I play animation characters very well.
