Silky voice with an underlying bass to it.

Voice Description

I have a feminine silky voice with an underlying bass undertone. Since 2005 I have had a lot of experience doing voice overs for commercials, television shows, documentaries, presentations and commentaries. I have great diction, and my accent has both British and American influences. I however can record voice overs purely in either of the accents.

My Voice Experience

Television & Radio commercials- My experience in voice over recording began while I was working as a commercial producer at a local television station. During a crisis, an opportunity arose for me to record a voice over and the head producer loved my voice. To date, I record voice overs for various clients world wide.

Business Presentations- I have recorded voice overs for different organisations the most notable one being the government of Kenya's Ministry of National Development and Planning.

Documentaries- I have also been fortunate to record voice overs for documentaries for different clients most notable being the United Organisation.

TV shows- Since I got my job working as a script writer for the Samantha's Bridal Television show that airs on MNET with an audience from forty-three different countries, I have had the pleasure of recording more twenty voice overs for their television show and I'm currently the main voice over artist for the show.

Given my vast experience, I am confident that I can also record voice overs for IVR, voicemail, phone system, on hold messages, movies, game trailers, and informercials.

My Training

I have a BA. in Communication from Daystar university in Kenya. Currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Business Management.

I have been doing a lot of practice and researching online to improve the quality of my voice. I also have various mentors in Kenya most of them in the media industry who have helped me grow my voice and perfect the art.

- Closed-back Circumaural headphones.
- Shock mount
-The studio I use is acoustically treated to ensure that the ambience of the room is not picked up during recording.

Additional Skills

- Have experience working in different sectors in the media industry; from being a production manager, producer and writer. More so I have had a hand in all sorts of production from film, to television dramas, documentaries, music videos, commercials and magazine shows. I don't just record voice overs, I understand what is needed to make the voice recording perfect for every individual production.
