Highlights

I would describe my voice as a gentle baritone with a slight raspy undercurrent. My typical tone is genial, with a moderate to slightly quick delivery. I can change the pace of my delivery from very slow to almost (not quite) auctioneer speeds.

I have a fairly broad range and can easily shift between vocal tones, inflections and interpretations. My strongest areas are educational and informational type deliveries, but I am very flexible with pacing, diction and vocal timbre.
