While my voice is always southern, I can control the drawl. I can have none or I can draw a crowd if I want to just stand around and listen to me tell a story. And definitely the Cajun...because we use a lot of words folks have no idea what they mean, but seem to find awful funny for some reason. I worked high pressure sales for many years, and personally, I believe that southern drawl got me in a lot of doors that I wouldn't have otherwise have gotten in. It seems to import trust for some reason and put people at ease around you. And that's sometimes the biggest hurdle if going in there trying sell them something. And honey, I was selling life insurance, the WORST of the lot. It was either that southern drawl or a bottle of scotch. I sure hope ya'll have a sense of humor or I better be packing up my desk now.

When I was a younger gal back in my hometown, I did quite a bit of regular advertising radio work. I'm about half southern belle and the other half bayou
French Creole gypsy and my voice had the drawl but then bayou would catch a syllable here and there and I reckon it musta been intriguing to folks. As I've gotten older I'm not sure if it sounds the same or not, but it sure would be fun to find out. So I thought I would nose around a bit and see who was leading the horsecart, put my name in hat and see what happened.
My daddy started out as a military man in World War II. Then, before his death at the age of 56, he went back to college 3 times, got 3 degrees, changing his career 3 times in his lifetime. He believed you could never get enough education and he drilled that into me. So after high school, I went to college. And went to college. And kept going to college. And about the age of 29, my counselor said maybe we oughta sita downa here (oops, there came that Cajun) and see what you've done with all these credits you've racked up. Come to find out, after the final tally, I had overshot mark just a little. I had 3 degrees just like my daddy! Literature, Computer Science & Programming & Business some such. All of which are completely obsolete now. We didn't even have the internet then. When I was working hard for my money, we did it the hard way.
Yes I have one of these
Computer & Software
And I certainly have one of these
I would just like to clarify the 'Studio' section. When I was doing this kind of work in the radio station, I think those guys were using reel to reel...LOL I'm not a techie person, I'm the first to admit. You tell me what I need, and I'll have it. But I'm smart, I love new ideas and creativity, my biggest pet peeve is the world today with the internet we have and these people doing nothing that wouldn't know a fresh idea if it hit 'em in their caboose. I lay in bed at night creating companies in my head and I have notebook upon notebooks filled with entire business plans. And I stand in line at the grocery store and I hear somebody moaning about how there "just ain't no jobs out there." And I want to hit them over the head with my bread. You give me a job to do, and I won't quit until its done, I can guarantee you that. If I can't bring something to the table that's gonna make your project better or take to the next level, then you don't need me, and I'm not gonna take your money and waste your time. I've never been fired from a job in my life and I've never left a job unless it was for a better one.
Voice Over Clients
Its been many years since I worked in this field as I stated earlier. I was a young lady when I did my radio stint back home. Too long long ago now for this gypsy to remember all the names I worked for. I remember this one mattress company I did for the longest and now you have to remember that this was early 80's. And they had me say this ridiculous line at the end of the commercial..something like "Now, you betta listen to Gypsy now and get yourself on down here to McConnells Mattress where you can eat crackers in Gypsy's bed anytime.." God, it was sooo corny. And everytime it aired, the lines at the radio station would light up like a Christmas tree. Everybody wanted to holla at Gypsy..LOL I guess they thought I lived there or something. They said the same thing happened at McConnells. I am so glad those tapes are dead and buried. I never had a complaint about my work or my work ethic and that's the truth. And I always kept 'em laughing.
