What People Say
“Tiffany is an excellent voice actor who brings an incredible amount of personality to the roles that she voices, has impeccable comedic timing, and is somehow blessed with the wonderful ability to voice two distinct characters at the same time without you even being able to tell them apart. She takes direction extremely well, delivers quality work on time, and above all, she voices a mean pair of cartoon birds! So if you like the sound of that for your animation project, then she’s your girl!”
“Tiffany rocks. We’ve had a long working relationship with her across multiple campaigns, and are always pleased with the results. Tiffany is professional and courteous, but has a rare gift. Her voice is full of life and soul, but also intention. She is able to see through the scripted words to deliver meaning to her voiceovers, and a true connection with the viewer.
We look forward to collaborating with her again soon!”
“We’ve had the privilege of collaborating with Tiffany on dozens of projects over the last several years and she’s never failed to wow us. While her skills are undeniable—including her incredible range, her near-superhuman ability to produce consistently awesome work under even the most ridiculous deadlines, and her talent for not just grasping but complementing our unique vision for each project—it’s her ability to infuse everything she does with her signature brand of warmth, charm, and authenticity that really elevates her work to the realm of Something Special. In short, Tiffany is the bee’s knees, and a joy to work with, both personally and professionally.”
“Working with Tiffany has been a delight. She interprets direction very well and often gives us several variations on a number of reads. She’s very good at making herself available and has always come through on jobs with tight turnaround times.
She’s both talented and passionate and she makes my job a little less difficult and a lot more fun.”
“Tiffany is a joy to work with. She approaches every project with enthusiasm and professionalism. She takes direction with a smile and doesn’t even flinch at our impossibly short turn-around requirements. (Just one step shy of “pick up your VO at the second window.”) Add that to her fresh, unique sound that cuts through the “same-old, same-old” clutter on the air and you can see why she’s way up on our go-to list for female talent.”
“We originally hired Tiffany to play a character voice in a radio commercial. Since then we’ve used her on several different types of projects from retail to nonprofit for both character and announcer roles on radio, TV and web videos. She is an absolute pleasure to work with – great attitude, good communicator, quick turnaround time, stellar sound quality and consistently on point. I highly recommend Tiffany!”
