Very pleasant, rich voice that is flexible with a high degree of control and a super wide range - 3 1/2 octave singing voice, wider if you include falsetto. Clear enunciation and vocabulary large enough to pronounce words correctly on the first read. Decades of experience correctly interpreting the writer's intention of how the message should be portrayed.

Blessed with a naturally excellent singing voice my education in theatrical elocution has been one of long hours of self taught mastery. However I recognize the need for continuing education in the field, and that no one person can, or ever will, know all there is to know.
