character, texture, real, friendly, intelligent
My signature sound for commercial work could be described as rich, bright, smooth, friendly, sexy, and natural/non-announcery.
For narrations, my sound is intelligent, professional, conversational, and warm.
I am exceptionally good at anything requiring fast talking, as I can speak very quickly, but am extremely clear and articulate at the same time.

My Studio Equipment
I record on Audacity software using an Audio Technica 3035 microphone.
I am a full time professional actress, including both live theatre and film work, so I am very used to taking direction and making adjustments. I have a very thick skin for criticism, and my ultimate goal is to make sure the client gets what they are looking for, so I am very open to input, feedback, and requests for changes.
I have also worked for many years in the corporate world, so I have a strong sense of professionalism - which includes being on time, following up, and respectful, clear communication.
