I have a warm, textured, mature alto voice that conveys intelligence, integrity, and approachability. I was a high school English teacher for twenty-five years, so have a voice that carries gravitas, authority and leadership. I have extensive professional theatre, film, on-camera, improvisation, and voice over experience.
