    Transcriber, writer, voice over artist, classical musician

    United States - Last active: 5 months ago - Tests: 5

    After working various day jobs requiring typing, I decided I wanted to assist with those who need their words on paper. I am a podcast, comedy, and literary junkie and would love to spend my day listening to your voice. I am a student in the mornings, but I can devote afternoons, evenings, and weekends to your needs. My love of listening comes from my Master's degree in vocal performance. I am an opera singer and my love of music transcends to the rhythm and flow of words. My training with my voice has also led me to manipulate it in many ways, and I now work in recording voiceovers from home. I speak German, Italian, and French as well, should any translation of linguistic comprehension be required. I'm a nice girl, a fun girl, but most importantly, an ambitious and dedicated girl. Every client is the most important client!
