I'm an actor, director, audiobook narrator and consultant (editing, performing, media).
I'm also mother, wife, daughter, friend, collaborator, comedy fan, mushroom enthusiast, comedy fan, dialect collector. I'm at home reading stories out loud -- to my children, to my family. To you.
I've been reading aloud professionally since 2015, and mimicking the voices and sounds around me since long, long before that.

Why two names?
Nora Achrati is the name I was born with and have performed under since 2010 -- it's a French spelling of an Arabic name, and it's beautiful. Most of my body of work exists under this name.
Nora Sofyan is my chosen name for audio recording -- chosen for ease of spelling and pronunciation, and because each letter links back to a name in my family. I began using Nora Sofyan in 2022.
