Voice Description

My best commercials are with friendly, real, casual, neighborly, and wry attitudes.

Narrations, for me, are rich, earnest, and expressive.

Lectures (I teach Electricity at a local college), so I can do the teacher/instructor/professor thing: intelligent, scholarly

I also make announcements at a 1048-seat, local college theater, so the announcer voice is there, too.
