Voice Description

Blessed with a dynamic range and lyrical quality, my reads cover the spectrum of colorful energetic for animation to grounded businesslike for narration, warm conversational for commercial, and I have the "crinkle" that's perfect for promo. My military upbringing allows for the stern direct approach to express itself in the world that interactive media sometimes needs.
