"A smooth baritone with a touch of the South in the mouth"

I have found quite a bit of work voicing Southern and Southwestern Americans for romantic audiobooks. I am a native Mississippian and while a youth frequent moving smoothed most of the region out of my accent. However, I am fully capable of diving deep into my drawl should the occasion warrant. I can do passable French, German, Scottish, Northern US, Bostonian, Midwestern, and Western accents. My voice is naturally a smooth baritone that has been described as filled with gravitas, sexy, seductive, authoritative, passionate, "like the sexiest cowboy ever", and my personal favorite "briny". As a trained actor I have a full emotionally expressive toolkit which has been honed in longform narration and time spent on stage in school and community theater.
