Octavia Thomas

Warm & Professional; Wry & Sarcastic; High-Energy

Voice Description

As a stage actor for the past several years, I can adjust the timbre to create the voice needed for the particular project. My initial voice quality is smooth, warm and somewhat deep – perfect for jobs that necessitate qualities of professionalism, strong intellectual capacity and trustworthiness. I can add further qualities to make the voice sexie , or more bright and energetic. I am very flexible and adaptable to the project or the product that is being sold.
