Warm Smooth Friendly Confident Engaging Sincere
Born and raised in Duluth, MN with a 'standard' Midwest accent. My voice is clear, warm, articulate, neutral, smooth, confident, believable, and engaging.
Young, youthful, bright, fresh, fun, energetic for mobile apps.
Grounded and authoritative for news and documentaries.
Clear and engaging for e-learning.
Assertive, deep, voice of God, and fun for promos and trailers.
Relaxed, natural, guy next door, Midwest, and friendly for commercials.
Versatile for videogames, characters, and ESL.
Solemn, somber, and compassionate for hospital, medical, and doctor reads.
Everyday, friendly, and conversational...to rich, serious, gutsy, and powerful.
