I'm Cenophia (or Nophi), and my voice is as unique as my name!
My voice is warm yet cool - with a relaxed confidence, or with animated high energy, to match a wide range of projects! (Radio / Television / Web Commercials, Promos, Film / Book Trailers, PSAs, Call to Action Spots, Whiteboard / Explainer Videos, Corporate Narration, E-Learning Modules, Automated Voice Messaging / Telephony / IVR, Mobile Apps, Software Commands, Troubleshooting and much more)
I can portray the friendly girl next door, an enthusiastic teen, a savvy millennial, a concerned mom, an informed expert, a poetic storyteller, a sarcastic rebel, a caring advocate... and all with an approach that is natural, and believable.
My versatile voice can also be described as:
• Warm, conversational, and friendly.
• Straight talking, genuine, and honest
• Sassy, strong attitude, and no nonsense
• Wry, sarcastic, and humorous.
• Sexy, smooth, sultry, and attractive
• Fun, youthful, playful, and upbeat (Gen X,Y,Z)
• Authentically urban, trendy, and hip
• Calming, motivational, relaxed, and reassuring
• Confident, strong, and knowledgeable.
• Thoughtful, caring, and concerned
• Sophisticated, and professional.
• Slightly raspy, and edgy
And is most commonly described as simply Cool.
I can play a variety of characters for on-line Animation, Cartoons, Video Games, Apps, and Film - including tough little boy, Marilyn Monroe type bombshell, Urban girl with attitude, Sweet Princess, Evil old witch... I'm comfortable with child voices, over the top characters of all ages, as well as realistic characters. I have been told often that I have great comedic timing.
As a true native New Yorker, I'm comfortable with various New York & New Jersey dialects (Queens, Long Island, Brooklyn, Bronx, New Jersey). I am also comfortable with various American Southern dialects, Authentic Urban dialects (Proficient in Urban Slang), Traditional Valley girl, Classic Bimbo, Classic Bimbo w/ a lisp, Exotic & Sexy, Slight Latin, Slight British, Slight French, and I'm fluent in sarcastic tones.
I am also an experienced session vocalist (Soprano w/ whistle tone) with experience singing various musical styles, as well as arranging vocals / harmony by ear, and performing musical parodies & jingles.

Every new project is exciting for me, and an opportunity to bring my best!
My first voiceover job, as well as my first job ever, was playing a gossiping Muppet named "Toya", on a Saturday morning series called "Citykids" (Jim Henson Productions). Being a non-muppeteer voice for a muppet was a rare opportunity. It was an amazing introduction into the world of voice over, and a great source of education.
I am an experienced session vocalist (Jingles, BVs), and now putting myself out there specifically as a voice-over talent has been the perfect marriage to studio work I've already been doing as a session vocalist.
I've done PSA voice over work (which often involved singing) for many youth focused networks (Nickelodeon/PBS)
I've worked with educators doing in-character historical narrations, sexual health based interactive programs for teens, and an ongoing math series as an inquisitive young boy student.
I have years of various theater & acting training, including work with The CityKids Foundation, which provided me with a wide range of professional training, while giving me performance and production experience from a young age.
I have worked as a teaching artist with various arts initiative based programs in NYC. I've taught acting/improv, vocal performance, and dramatic writing workshops to students ranging from pre-school to novice adult. My educational theater background often coupled performances with in-character workshops. These experiences have been invaluable to me as a voice-over artist.
Puppeteering Workshop with John Tartaglia (Sesame Street/Avenue Q/ImaginOcean)
Working as a session vocalist for a broad range of musical genres, I've developed a great ear for vocal matching, and harmonizing, which helps greatly with voice over projects. I am also a karaoke master, so there is no genre of music too obscure for me to tackle. Music is one of my favorite forms of expression!

I have a wide range, a creative approach, and greet every project with enthusiasm.
I also have a great ear, and I am very good at taking direction, as well as self direction.
I can provide general copywriting, character copy, or copy-editing services (including making the copy sound more conversational, or incorporating American slang).
Will travel to studios in New York City (all boroughs, and nearby areas), and parts of New Jersey.
Full Music Recording Studio Access with advanced notice
I have experience as an Apple Certified Technician, so I am computer savvy.
I have a flexible schedule, making it easy to meet deadlines.
Making sure each project is a success is my bottom line.
