Sophisticated, sexy,friendly, motherly, business

Voice Description

I have a natural British voice that I can work in either a sophisticated professional manner, or more softly spoken for a sweet and friendly sound. I can also tone done for a more sexy sound. I am confident with fast, medium and soft sell commercials, love reading books aloud both fiction and poems for narration. Would love the opportunity to voice over for a cartoon character in a movie.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I have a natural British accent which can be geared towards English, Scottish or Irish, these accents are very popular in commercials especially if you are selling European products. With my ability to perform the classic sophisticated British accent I can work for business's in many countries for IVR announcements, business demos, presentations and instructional guides. I can also perform a North American accent.
