BBC, concerned, trustworthy, narrative, sincere, warm, friendly, intelligent
As a former BBC Presenter, I have a natural sounding voice which is excellent for narration, e-learning, documentaries and the non " highly-commercial" sound.
I specialise in NGO and charity campaigns as well as documentaries and audio guides.
Although not a native French speaker, I do have bi-lingual French and have an excellent ear to read names in Spanish, Italian, Hungarian, German and other languages.
My French is fluent with a very delicate and light accent
A quick turn around is often possible - sometimes within a few hours as I have a background as a radio producer and before that a sound engineer.
Arts Broadcasting is a specialty, I can also offer script writing and help producers if English is not a first language.
