Home studio
Microphone(s):
Mojave 50  & Shure SM7B & Zoom H5

Editing: Audacity & GarageBand… might dabble into Adobe but we’ll see. I’d rather narrate than edit (and open to collaborate with a sound/editing magician.) 

 

What I love to narrate:

  • Fantasy Books
  • Nature documentaries
  • Children’s stories & Characters
  • English novels with Arabic influence
  • Arabic pros & poetry
  • Psychology & Dream studies
  • Meditation, spiritual & Self help 
  • Socially & environmentally responsible ads/commercials
  •
