Accents for Secondary Characters
I am a fast learner of new accents
“Sporty, spirited and undaunted. A sparkle of youth within the glow of maturity.”
The name of my game is strength and persistence in everything I do. I started acting in Kindergarten and have never stopped. Narrating audiobooks allows me to flex that acting muscle every day.
I particularly love the tension of a thriller, the intimacy of a memoir, and the educational aspect of nonfiction narration.
My educational background in medical massage therapy and intensive anatomical studies, including the performance of human dissections, lends itself well to medical narration with anatomical and biological terminology.
Finally, I am a passionate Masters CrossFit athlete. Nothing builds mental fortitude like tough physical training. I will go the distance with you. I will apply my skills and dedication to your audiobook with 100% intensity!
