Voice Description

I'm often told that I sound like Barack Obama. I have a deep, warm voice excellent for narrations, how-to videos, on-hold messaging, and sexy-fun for commercials. My wry wit makes me an excellent public speaker, so I would also do very well with professional presentations of any type. I have on-air television experience, radio experience, and voice-over credits.

My Voice Experience

I'm often told I have a radio voice, and now, people think I sound like Barack Obama. Who am I to argue? That combination lead to my former employer, Cox Ohio Publishing, utilizing me for its on-hold messaging. They wanted me for a simple reason --- my on-air television experience and my live-news radio experience means I know how to write a script and get it right in one take. That saved the company time and money. I trained as a musician in New York, so I also have a library of music my clients can use with their material.
