I have been hired numerous times on the strength of my voice which has been trained for projection; equally at home in open spaces as within the auditorium. Features suberb clarity at a wide range of volumes, both with or without amplification. Crystal clear diction across a range of British Isles and American accents in addition to standard RP.
