I was told I could talk before I walked, so voiceovers fit the bill perfectly after having other careers in journalism (radio) and meteorology (as a broadcast meteorologist). While described as bright and friendly, my voice has also lent itself to projects requiring tones that are trustworthy, warm, matter-of-fact, educated, and having authority. I provide voiceovers for commercials, corporate narrations, awards shows, website- and social-media videos, eLearning modules, TTS (text-to-speech), and message-on-hold for phone systems all from my custom-built recording studio. A little more about me…I’m a mix of a lot of heritages, but mostly Norwegian (hence the Nordic runes on my site which stand for J, F, V, and O ). I’m also proud to say that my studio is partially powered by renewable energy (thanks to our residential Skystream wind turbine), is lit with LED lights, and is supervised by our cat Kimchi and our dog Teaka.
