Guy next door, friendly, happy, trustworthy, intelligent
My voice is friendly and accessible. The nice guy, the friend you trust. It's pretty upbeat and great for dry, comedic purposes.
For retail spots it's energetic but not overkill. More like an excited friend than an announcer type.
For more serious or intimate spots, my lower volume timbre has a nice warmth to it, giving a sense of calm and confidence.
I'm also good at sounding intelligent and intellectual without sounding condescending.
