Highlights

Although I am 55, people who speak to me over the phone that haven't met me usually perceive me considerably younger. I am warm and friendly and frequently am told by people that they find my voice soothing. Quite often I am told by both men and women that my voice is sexy. However, although my natural voice is calm and comforting it can sound more high pitched and excited depending on the circumstances. Furthermore, I have a wide vocal range and can easily sound younger, even like a teenager or child. As well, I think that I could imitate a senior's voice if required. I also like to sing and can sing soprano quite naturally. I also have a pleasant laugh.

Experience

Although I don't have voice-over experience I have worked in telecommunications, receptionist, sales and administration positions for over 25 years that require I frequently deal with internal and external clients and colleagues. I am often told by people that I have a friendly and soothing voice (sometimes told that I have a sexy voice), and people enjoy talking with me. I also have 5 years of acting training and experience, and am a member of Toastmasters (A worldwide public speaking organization). I do a lot of reading (I am also a writer and published author) and I love to read out loud and am an excellent reader.I am imaginative and creative and artistically inclined and have good vocal variety. I have taken a number of psychology courses and I am a very "feeling" sort of person who picks up and understands quickly other peoples emotions and I am very open and expressive with my own emotions.

Credentials

Education

As far back as grade school I took public speaking lessons and entered public speaking competitions, often being among the winners. (My grade school principal used to tell me that he loved my voice and that my manner reminded him of Queen Elizabeth. Ha!). Then in high school I took 5 years of drama and acting courses and was involved in the production of many plays and skits. As well as acting roles I enjoyed writing and producing skits myself (I especially enjoyed doing parodies) and I also did a bit of stand-up comedy. One piece of comedy I did that was very well received by the audience was about training a pet flea, whom in the end, I accidentally swallow.

In my late teens and in my twenties I did a lot of volunteer activities in my church, including being a full-time minister, which involved teaching and reading the Bible and Bible publications with people so this gave me a lot of practice reading aloud. Also, since I was a teenager I have received public speaking and teaching training through my church and have given many dozens of talks over the years.

I have also been a member of Toastmasters since April 2015 which is helping me to further hone my speaking skills. My most recent Toastmasters speech was on "Are you Feeling Stressed?" Another recent and very well received Toastmasters speech was on "How do you View the Homeless?"

As well, I recently completed an 8 week acting course at a local acting school to refresh my acting skills.
