Voice Description

First and foremost, my voice is real and down-to-earth. It is deep and warm for that sexy read, an endearing squeak for that quirky read, a wry tongue-in-cheek quality to my personality that works well in sarcastic reads, fun for partner reads and dialogue, and it has a professional demeanor and a knowledgeable easy-to-understand quality for instruction.

My Voice Experience

I've been hearing all my life, "You've got a great voice. You should be doing voiceover." And so I've trained, I've learned what it can do and what it can't do, and I've cultivated its uniqueness.
I've recorded for animation projects and commercials.
