I also narrate a weekly real estate program entitled: HOUSECAPADES, which airs on the FOX television network in Canada and U.S.
I narrate audiobooks as well. My most recent, "Deadly Beloved" by renowned author, Max Allen Collins was released last winter on the SPEAKING VOLUMES WEBSITE.
I also voice on-hold messages and IVR systems throughout Canada and the U.S. I work for a company who produces these messages on a weekly basis. I am the official voice for cellular phone company ROGERS HOME PHONE SERVICE, as well as Toronto Hydro, Enbridge Gas and many others.
I have several clients I do work for in Canada and the U.S., and I am represented by VOX TALENT voice agency in Toronto.

Kristi's voice is well suited for narrations, corporate websites and on-hold systems. Kristi has a warm, welcoming sound to her voice and, she can handle difficult, technical scripts with ease. She has often been referred to as the "girl with the smile in her voice."
Kristi also has quite a wide range. She can be your "next door neighbor", a "sweet Mom", a "sexy visitor" , an "elderly woman" or, a "wicked witch". Kristi has the ability to re-enact many characters, and was even a re-occuring character on a sci-fi podcast. Kristi was also a finalist in a SIMPSON's sound-alike contest, where she re-enacted the voice of BART.

Happy Summer Kristi. At least your mention of character capability brings bonus points in my realm!
Welcome to VU even though you've been here awhile. You're in good company here!
I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.
I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.
Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!
I hope you'll check out and join a group that we started not too long ago called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. With your experience, you would be a tremendous resource!

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
