My vocal style is compelling, evocative, dramatic, dynamic, animated, engaging, velvety, rich, intriguing, charming, poignant, charismatic, versatile, credible and genuine. I marry the narration with the author's intent, and provide believable and dynamic characterizations that truly bring the work to life. For video games, I provide spot-on voice characterization, especially of natural sounding, characters. I have voiced characters from Daisy Buchanan to hard-boiled detective Lindsay Boxer. For corporations and nonprofits, I bring a warmth and credibility to phone systems, training videos, PSAs and fundraising spots. Additional audiobook demos can be found at (Website hidden).

"Xe's narration of Ferber's stories is engaging and utterly delightful. She paints vivid word pictures of an earlier time and place, and gives true voice to all Ferber's characters."Librivox.org (listener)
