MY APPROACH TO VOICE WORK:

I am able to give life to a a script quickly. I respond well to direction and can intuit a client's core wishes in terms of selling a product, or creating a specific style when doing narration. Good voice work requires skill and the ability to deliver fast. I do not disappoint on either.
