Warm melllow confident similar to Richard Burton
Warm ,with a range of depth to match the valleys of Wales but can also be very mellow with Good clear diction & being born & bred in South Wales UK in the home town of welsh talent such as Richard Burton Sir Anthony Hopkins & Micheal Sheen I have a similar accent.
I see my voice as being ideal for narration work but also suitable for software instruction guides or due to my technical background instructional narration for technical products.
Audio Books would also be an area that I believe would benefit from my clear diction & good pronunciation.
I can do husky/sexy for some commercial work if required, I am willing to audition for character or comic parts ,but to old now to play the part of young & adventurous More the old ogre or sinister evil maniac!!
Or of course telephone systems instruction.
