My Voice Experience

Born in Québec city, native language French, studied both in French and English.

My passion for my work goes back to my pre-teen years when my recurrent hobby was to mimick television announcers with various cleaning products in hand.

You may say that those playful exercises "paid off" and with additional training, experience and constant determination, my voice may now be guiding medical students through new protocoles, greeting customers via telephone systems, help companies in developing new medias such as text-to-speech and of course, praising the vertus of a leading cleaning brand...
