Voice Description

My voice is crystal-clear, buoyantly energetic or charcoal-smokey. I bring a tone of musicality to my work. I can do sexy and youthful for commercials; articulate and polished for professional work; color and animation for character work. For narration and documentary I project authority through a natural, conversational vocal tone.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

For character work I exel at strong, villainous, dynamic characters. I can also do innocent, childlike characters. Accents include, British, Southern (eg, Georgia, Texan, Arkansas, Missippi, Louisiana) and French. I have decades of acting experience, so my range for characters and accents is broad.

My Voice Experience

I have done Webcasts for Cisco Systems--very "newscaster-ish". I have done some character/animation work for an independent filmmaker and a radio play.
