Voice Description

"Friendly but believable." That's the most common voice description used by clients. Very useful in e-learning and training material.

It's all about communicating, not just being a voice that comes out of a speaker.

Tongue-in-cheek comes naturally to me; a touch of sarcasm without ever sounding mean. Useful for commercials and personality-driven scripts.

Living the audiobook story along with the listener.

I'm proudest of being chosen by several clients to "ghost-voice" for them... When someone asks me to speak for them, that's a really big compliment.
