My vocal tones draw the listener in. My accent is General American (no regional dialect) and my vocal tones run from easy-going, down-to-earth, and empathetic to corporate, informative, knowledgeable, geeky, and authoritative.
I offer a responsive and professional service and have voiced projects for international brands like Saucony and Louis Vuitton, as well as the $1 billion Foothill Gold Line project in California.
Please have a listen to my demos, and if you like what you hear, click the FAVORITE button to save me for future reference, or - better still - send me a PRIVATE AUDITION request.
You'll have your PRIVATE AUDITION back quickly, and, if you are pleased as I expect you will be, I can get on with successfully completing your finished product to your specifications - saving you the time of having to listen to dozens or even hundreds of other auditions.
I bring to the recording booth a wealth of life and career experience including having worked for over 15 years in Economic Development with businesses of all kinds from Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to Blue Chip Multinationals, a personal understanding of disability and professional experience in disability services, and having served as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer in Sri Lanka where I taught English as a Second Language. All of this experience informs my corporate, commercial, charitable, and educational voice-overs.
My ultimate aim is to work with you in a friendly and professional way to get you the quality finished product that you need, when you need it.
I look forward to working with you.
