Voice Overs

I have been recording broadcast and non-broadcast voice overs for more than 20 years. Projects have run the spectrum from news tracks to audiobooks. I have my own audio booth and am happy to record in my home studio or the producers studio of choice.


I've been reading Teleprompter for more than 20 years.  For almost 10 years I read prompter almost daily.  I am very comfortable with this medium.
