A perfect voice, along with technical know-how, fun professionalism, and an ability to take direction that has been complimented too many times to count.
Many international and Fortune 500 companies trust me with their scripts, like Target, 3M, Macy's, AkzoNobel, Johnson & Johnson, and Mellanox.
But let's talk about what I can do for you:
* Bring your copy to life with calm authority for serious topics
* Deliver lots of smile and warmth if you want your listeners charmed.
* Provide an honest, conversational style that listeners instantly trust
Want something a little wilder?
* Fun accents
* Kid-friendly condescension-free cheer
* Rapid-fire small print
* Rich, snarky sarcasm
And some things above and beyond a great voice:
* Attention to detail
* Fast turnaround
* Pleasant and professional interactions
* High quality studio with ISDN and Source-Connect

I've voiced everything from news to murder mysteries, commercials to children's books. I have a reputation for getting you what you want in a minimum of takes.
I have a bachelor's in physics and an M.S. in engineering - they come in handy when you need believable "smart." This also means I'm not intimidated by my equipment, and you'll hear that confidence in how I read your script.
