Voice Description

I have a very warm, reliable and deep voice for documentaries, which is also useful for corporative jobs. But my voice can also be educational, knowledgeable, smooth, which makes me also an expert in audiobooks, e-learning and web videos. But I can adapt it to several kinds of jobs.
