Character specialist, warm, wise, sexy
I have a subtle breathy quality to my voice. It's a little deeper in register than when I was younger, but still has a flowing "900" quality - unless I'm tickled about something. Then it becomes more animated and vocally casual. Having said that, I can also do male voices as long as they don't have to be too bass or intense.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I've done costume character work including a white-haired Fairygodmother with an East Coast trucker's voice, a shrill alien mom shouting at her son to put the human back and bring the spaceship home, and a staged five-minute skit of a radio show requiring me to do voices offstage for multiple characters including a 12-year old boy, an insecure librarian, a female biker type and a young mom giving a shout out to her son.
My dialects are not perfect but I can give the flavor of Spanish, Russian, British and Southern.
My Voice Experience
"Doriah the Wind", my first self-created voiceover character, was a strong whisper that varied throughout her vignette as she took the listener on a travelogue of her interactions with nature and humankind.
Next up was "Fairygodmother Commentary", a 3-minute weekly radio comedy spot where I exaggerated some news item. Most significant were a piece berating Thanksgiving as a national holiday, and a takedown of NASA's plan to colonize a space station near the planet Mars: "If you was the Martians, what would you think? - Right! There goes the neighborhood!"
As opportunities have presented themselves,I've created characters to present through radio, commercials, PSAs, multimedia, live and video presentations. Some of them were created specifically for those mediums, some had their "tryout" while I did costume character work, singing telegrams - and auditions masquerading as singing telegrams.
I've recently premiered two internet radio shows which I write and host: "The Believe Tour", a non-denominational celebration of the best humankind can be from a global perspective; and "It Ain't Over!" an onery "listen up" on what the 50+ crowd is still accomplishing, learning and sharing with other generations.
As you can tell, it ain't - er, isn't over for me.
My educational background - other than refreshing my brain and further complicating my ability to focus on a single goal - is totally unimpressive and irrelevant.
