sophisticated, smooth, friendly
Clear, warm, confident, professional with smooth sophistication - and a wry sense of humor. Friendly, happy and trustworthy are packaged in as well.
Precision, clarity and warmth of sound seems custom cut for documentaries, tutorials and corporate narration. An acting background strengthens my work in audiobooks. Commercially, my voice is terrific for powerful professionals; friendly young mom or neighbor; or sexy, smooth and sophisticated for high end products.
