Performance Notes

I love getting into character and acting out each book that I produce. My vocal style is versatile, but I work best with roles requiring a general American, midwest, or general British accent. I greatly enjoy narrating children's books, mysteries, and romance--both historical and contemporary. I record on a SM7B Dynamic Cardioid Vocal Mic with a CL1Cloud 1-ch Mic Boost and a Clarett USB Audio Interface.
