Diane Hayes

Authentic, warm, engaging with wry comedic timing

Voice Description

I find that fine line between the "authoritative" and the "warmth" of a delivery, especially for commercial work and narration. My voice work ranges from warm approachable mom next door, to Authoritative and comforting Medical Narration to Fun Kids and Cartoon Characters. Conversational Narration is one of my strengths.
