Talent Voices Verified

CHARLESTON, South Carolina, US 4:33 AM (EST) Local Time





Warm, dulcet tones await your project! I'm the voice in the HALL OF PRESIDENTS at Disney, the orientation film for the US CAPITOL VISITOR CENTER, loads of museum work, including the NMAAM & the Smithsonian, character voices as an actor (and very entertaining parent), recruitment videos, and documentaries - one of which happened to win an EMMY Award. Natural, conversational, and inspiring are my vocal assets. Instructional and explainer videos, museum work, readings - I love it all.

Service Overview

Voice Over

I have a very malleable instrument, probably from spending years in the theatre. My natural tones are deep, warm, dark, sultry, articulate, confident and sometimes raspy, growly. I am very easily directed and pride myself on a very fast turn-around. I am a strong writer and have an innate sense of flow. I'd be happy to offer revision if necessary and the cost is always negotiable. Intuitive, dynamic ability to edit copy.
