Voice Description

Conversational, non-announcery reads are what I am known for. Can always add a little grit/texture/attitude too if you like...

Can also read technical information in an accessible, easy to understand manner.

From smooth and professional, to wry to comedic, I am a very versatile performer.

Dialects and characters a specialty!
