Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I am from the US, African American, originally from Chicago, Illinois and can speak authentically from that experience and those locations. I lived in New York City for 11 years in West Indian neighborhoods and can perform that accent. I have lived in Atlanta, GA since 1998, and speak 'Black Southern.' A graduate of New York University, Tisch School of the Arts, I do exceptional character work and narrative texts.
My specialties are audiobooks and ELearning. In the former I have recorded over 60 books and recently my title "The Wedding Date" received an Earphones Award. In the area of learning, I bring your printed words to life through engaging, conversational, professional voiceovers.
