Fun and Spunky to warm and soothing...I offer expressive reads and can provide a wide variety of interpretations. I've been described as "attention getting", "compassionate" and a "real person".
I'm a Full Time Voice Talent, recording voiceovers since 1996, and have the added benefit of having worked on your side of the glass: voice casting; coaching talent; engineering; editing since 1993.
All that experience means I respect the process and everyone's roles.
