My experience in radio has given me the ability to read professionally, with clearly enunciated wording and pacing suitable for news or commercials. My comedic voice reminds me of George Carlin without the accent and raspiness. My voice is dynamic and resonant, and can include nasal elements if desired. Yogic breathing techniques have also been useful to me in this field. Other voice features include a low, relaxing/soothing tone as well as a dark, quiet and menacing tone. See demonstration clips for examples of these.

I have been engaged in public, educational and motivational speaking on blindness and disability rights/awareness since my childhood, and have been doing stand-up comedy since my early teens. I spent 5 years in radio as a news correspondent, writing and reading my stories both pre-recorded and on air. I am also a certified yoga instructor who has conducted a number of deep relaxation/meditation classes.
I specialize in communication theory, but I do have a background in radio and journalism, as well as public relations. Most of my education was on the job, whether in the studio or on the phones as a clerical assistant.

My schedule is currently open, and I have no other projects at this time. I could therefore have a completed product within a day or so.
