My voice is a deep, resonant bass. (Think “James Earl Jones.”) I generally speak and sing in the baritone range. (In the morning, though, I am a bass.) I am comfortable in front of a microphone, camera, or live audience. My voice is well-suited for a "voice of authority," such as in documentaries, narrations, commercials, phone systems, and public service announcements. I can offer a number of character voices, as well.
