About

Warm, dulcet tones await your project! I am a voice actor who has voiced things like the 2017 HOUSE OF PRESIDENTS at Disney, the orientation film for the US CAPITOL VISITOR CENTER, a short film based on the Cuban artist Roberto Duruthy and a host of other things. I've done loads of museum work, character voices as an actor (and very entertaining parent), recruitment videos and documentaries - one of which happened to win an EMMY Award. I'd be delighted to voice for you. 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.

Voice Over Testimonials

Working with Joy was wonderful. Her interpretation of the script was inspired and she took direction and feedback like a pro. If you want a voice talent that can deliver authentic, not forced voice over, Joy is the best. Just a great voice. I look forward to working with her again.

UPTOWN STUDIOS

It was a great pleasure to work with Joy on this project. Not only did her voice suit our vision perfectly, she embodied the character and sold the story we wanted to tell. It would be a delight to work with Joy again on future projects.

STUDIO B

Joy was absolutely great to work with. She has a wonderful voice that really made our video come alive. She took direction well and did a perfect read. I would highly recommend, and I know we will be working with her again!
