My voice is very versatile, and my general speaking tone which would be utilized for most voice over work, is extremely clear and articulated, with a sexy edge of a young to mature female voice.
My voice is very smoothe and professional and is ideal for voicemail and auto voice programs, corporate training courses, podcasts, narration, books on tape, instructional voice over, etc. I can also effectively use intonation to create moods, or character effects that may be used for animations or television.

I own a Shure 55SH Series II Mic as well as an M-Audio Mic & System. I also have an Alesis Mixer. Generally speaking I am able to record anything as a wav file using the M-Audio Program & Mic then convert it into any desired audio file format including Mp3, Mp4, .au, .wma or other file. I can also add more reverb or sound effects. Although I am very basic with my composition, I can add simple loops if required to the background or import audio files if you would like them to play simultaneously. Other than that I can also use my office phone to call in to a system for recording. At this time I am still trying to build my home recording office. If the pay is right I am willing to go to local studios to make the recording depending on the fees quoted.
ADDITIONAL NOTES & SKILLS:
I am extremely creative and have many ideas and perspectives that have been utilized by whomever I meet. I use internet marketing very effectively and can create any media program for promotion using Publisher, Photo Shop, or PowerPoint.
I may be able to try out different accents as I have travelled around the world and even lived in Australia for a brief period. I can also use some of the accents that may be correlated with the languages I studied seen under "Training"
I lived in Texas & VA briefly, but my accent is primarily West Coast North American having been raised in Washington & California.
I have fairly strong backgrounds in music, jazz, art,writing, music theory, music history, theater, antiques, the real estate & mortgage industry, marketing, sales, computers, graphic design, web-based marketing, animals, psychology,botany, astronomy, fashion, interior design, theology, and literature. I am also well travelled and have visited and lived in many places both in the U.S. and abroad.
I also have a strong interest and passion in organic food and health issues. I have been a video blogger on Youtube and blogger on the livestrong communities for quite some time. I am an autodidact when it come to health knowledge and have done extensive research about health in my spare time with the hopes of helping others eventually reach their health goals as I strive to reach my own.
I am a poet & author and will be launching my own poetry series that will be a spin-off of the book series I am currently co-authoring.
I also have participated in a few projects involving plus size modeling and was even interviewed on the Romance Channel by editor in chief of Extra Hip Magazine, Katie Aarons, author of "Sexy At Any Size" after I won one of her modeling competitions.
I feel all these things are important because they give me a variety of subjects to discuss. I am very comfortable and familiar with a broad range of topics. I often incorporate into daily conversation an extensive vocabulary and understanding of the importance of enunciation, projection, intonation and clear communication skills.
Also, I possess both a sarcastic and a silly sense of humor which would be appropriate for a comic or character role.
