Voice Description

I have been told I have the "velvet thunder" voice. Deep, natural, with a full range. In an instant I can change it from "Gen X" to "Voice of God." I can read long copy, narrate fiction, non-fiction and delight at reading children’s books. I can do dialects, funny character voices, and regional and other stereotypes. Directors love me because I hit the mark on time and inflection. I have also been in the advertising agency world for over 20 years and have directed talent for longer than I can remember. I can sound serious or silly, informative or fun, dramatic or casual.
