Voice Description

Warm, sultry, dreamy and/or emotional delivery. And of course, well-versed in that vocal-fry "conversational" millenial delivery!

My voice is naturally of a pleasant, deep pitch with a neutral Midwestern accent. I transition quite naturally from a youthful/teenage sound to convincing middle-aged depth.
