Audiobook: Memoir - "Final Payments"

Highlights

My vocal style is compelling, evocative, dramatic, dynamic, animated, engaging, velvety, rich, intriguing, charming, poignant, charismatic, versatile, credible and genuine. I marry the narration with the author's intent, and provide believable and dynamic characterizations that truly bring the work to life. For video games, I provide spot-on voice characterization, especially of natural sounding, characters. I have voiced characters from Daisy Buchanan to hard-boiled detective Lindsay Boxer. For corporations and nonprofits, I bring a warmth and credibility to phone systems, training videos, PSAs and fundraising spots. Additional audiobook demos can be found at (Website hidden).
