sophisticated, smooth, friendly
I'm a warm, clear, confident, professional with smooth sophistication - and a side of friendly, happy and trustworthy.
My voice is great for documentaries, tutorials and corporate narration because of its warm, smooth precision and clarity.
My acting background strengthens my work in audiobooks.
Commercially, my voice is terrific for the friendly young mom or neighbor; or sexy, smooth and sophisticated for high end products.
