Voice Description

If your looking for a typical slick announcer VO, that's not me. My voice has an avuncular quality. I have a rich folksy resonance combined with a raspy edge, commands the listener's attention. Variety is the spice of life and you can say the same of voice acting. I am incredibly versatile whether it is narration, commercials, promos or characters, I let the copy dictate the read and style, so I can truly honor the writers intent.
