Highlights

My voice has been described as professional-sounding, authoritative yet reassuring. I have a facility with medical, technical and business terminology due to my experience as a Doctor of Optometry and education in business and information science.
My voice also sounds caring and soothing, great for storytelling. Suitable for mysterious undercurrents and a fun grandmother with a twinkle in her eye.
As a singer I'm an alto or second soprano, and have experience harmonizing as the middle voice of a vocal jazz trio.
