My dual nationality background and international experience brings you a voice with crisp, standard diction that is understandable and comfortable for your international audience. Ready for a bit more rhythm and sunshine? Ask for my native Jamaican (Caribbean) accent to bring some "Irie" to your production! With my digital home studio and ready access to professional studios nearby, I am able to provide both rapid turnaround and reliable quality. I would be happy to talk with you about how we can work together to provide a professional sounding project within your budget. ALSO visit (Website hidden) for more information.
