Reliable, Responsible and Professional.
Martha is a full time, professional voice talent, in business since 2009. Martha’s VO Kitchen reliably provides articulate, trained and natural narration that is appropriate and effective for your commercial or corporate project. Examples of genres voiced: commercials for radio and television, e-Learning and medical narration, video narration, corporate presentations, tour guides and telephone systems/IVR.
Martha is available for directed sessions by phone patch, Skype or ipDTL (which is a high quality connection that allows your engineer to record my voice in the studio of your choice. ipDTL provides a bridge to ISDN if that is your preferred connection). She is also skilled at self-direction, which means that from the many ways in which your script can be read and presented, she will return a read which will be effective in achieving the goals you have for your commercial, corporate or other project narration.
Martha is comfortable with medical and technical jargon and 100% committed to quality. She is a founding member of World Voices Organization (WoVO).
Her voice has been described as warm and sincere; with a delivery style that is believable, corporate, friendly, informative and trustworthy. She is confident, conversational and natural – putting listeners at ease while keeping their interest.
Martha grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area in a whole family of natural hams, whose pastimes included performing for friends and family and conversing in various accents. Eventually Martha grew up, married and had 2 sons. After a 2 year stay on a Wiltshire farm in England her family moved to the Philadelphia area and is still there. Martha has trained (and continues to work with) the best and most illustrious talents in the voice over community. For fun she studies French and Italian, watches birds and works in her garden. At every opportunity she indulges her passion for taking care of people by cooking and feeding them delicious food!
When you hire Martha this is what happens: first your script is meticulously gone over and any research necessary is done to ensure thorough understanding. Martha will present as a knowledgeable expert. She will make sure that she has an understanding of the desired outcome (the message of the media). Who is the audience, how do they like to be addressed, etc. Pronunciations are double-checked. After high-quality recording in professional sound booth, audio is double checked and edited (with re-records as necessary) for distracting sounds or sibilance and script agreement. Unless client prefers to do it themselves the audio will be mixed appropriately (EQ, compression, de-breath, etc) and saved in the format of the client’s choice.
