Voice Description

My voice has been described as rich and pure and would fit right in with beauty products, high-end luxury items, promos, and reads that require a caring, nurturing tone. Others have said my commercial voice is "believable",“soft”, "maternal" and “personal”. I've been recommended for audio books such as non-fiction, comedy, and children’s stories (“teacher”, “sophisticated”, and “compassionate” are descriptions used to pinpoint my narrative voice).

My Home Base

, Texas, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I lived overseas for a total of 10 years (Thailand and in the Middle East). I've been exposed to numerous accents - my favorites are Upper Class British, northern England (Newcastle area), Australian, and some South African. I grew up around Houston, Texas and can lay out a thick or thin Southern accent (whether it be from Texas, Alabama, etc). I am also able to speak English with no accent at all. Most people I met overseas said they weren't sure where I was originally from.

My Voice Experience

As I was living in Bahrain (a Kingdom in the Persian Gulf) I was approached by a British radio DJ who had heard my voice as a singer with a local rock band and onstage in many theatrical productions. He asked if I had ever considered doing voice-over work. I told him that I had been told I might do well in that industry but I had never followed up on it. I ended up recording two radio commercials (ads for two restaurants) and they were broadcast over the radio in Bahrain. I got very good feedback and I decided that voice-over work was the way I wanted to earn a living. I have since recorded some answering service work for a realty company in Florida.

My Training

I have performed in many on-stage productions in a variety of roles (old, young, blind, English, American) and enjoyed every minute of it. I always had good reviews in the newspaper and from friends and acquaintances. Whilst doing the plays, I also performed as the lead singer for a rock band for 3 years and singer with an Irish/Scottish band at the same time. All of which led to my doing voice-over work!

My Studio Equipment

I have an AKG Perception 420 microphone which is excellent for home recording. I use a Roland Juno-G (a 128 voice expandable synthesizer) with an audio/midi voice/song recorder.

Additional Skills

Back in the corporate world, I worked for executives and business owners directly. My voice was always professional and easy to understand. I was once told by a co-worker that my voice would suit audio books. I worked in a psychotherapy practice which required excellent phone and interpersonal skills as psychological/medical emergencies did occur. Handling patient and health care professional calls with tact, discretion, and appropriate behavior on my part was a big reason I was valued by the head psychotherapist/owner.
