I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I got into the world of voice over when I worked for a well-known post production facility in London: although I was a receptionist, I was often asked to step behind the mic and help clients out. Since then my portfolio has expanded to include documentary narration, sponsorship reels, fashion award reels and meditative audio reels, amongst other things. I've performed voice over services for Sesame Workshop, Gen Art, Barefoot Workshops and private clients. I'm extremely personable and take direction very well: past clients have commented on how easy I am to work with, and how few takes I need to get the job done!

Native English, fluent Spanish, proficient French.
My natural accent is British RP (think: Kate Winslet or BBC World Service) and my speaking voice is low, kind, melodic, authoritative, contemporary and confident. It has been described by others as expressive, sophisticated, charismatic and intelligent. My voice is also very versatile: I can do a wide range of British, American and other accents, as well as a variety of characters and impersonations.
