Highlights

I have a tremendous amount of experience doing long form industrial video with a warm deep delivery. I am also very capable of doing sexy and/or fun delivery. I am perfect for the smooth professional as well. I have an extensive background in voice messaging and on-hold messages. I would be great for narration or documentaries because I have done voice overs for the medical community for several years. I've done power point presentations, videos for the internet and more.
