Voice Description

Commercial, character, industrial and audio books. I can sound serious and professional for corporate training audio or announcers reading highly technical copy. Lots of guy next door voices too. Such as the friendly neighbor, confused shopper and more. My character voices range from silly, cartoony to grizzled old coots. Good also for intimate, romantic moods and two spots. Warm & fuzzy to clueless monotone.
