I have on-air roots in Canada’s national and Montreal’s local media communities, with a record of broadcasting success at the local, national and international levels. My voice has been heard nationally and regionally on radio and TV, plus online; as well as in employee training videos; public service announcements; webinars; narrations; political ads and as the "booming voice from above" at large community, sports and arts events.
Whether you need authoritative and newsy; fun and playful or just plain conversational, I'm sure I've got a voice for you. Have a listen and let's talk.
