My Voice Experience

I started out acting in plays and then went to school in communications for television and radio. I was a classical deejay in Oklahoma City and in Houston. Previously, sold skin care in various lines. I later went to school for a B.S. and M.A. in psychology and have worked at UTMB for a psychiatrist that did clinical studies and then worked as a NASA subcontractor working with the flight docs with regards to the Medical Operations Requirements Document. When my children were older I decided to get back into acting and voice overs. I grew up in Iowa and have lived in Texas for many years. I have a well trained smooth mid west dialect and can do southern, Irish, British, Cockney and German accents as well. I am also a tribute artist for Marilyn Monroe, Bette Midler and Mae West, I can sing and talk very similar to them. You've got to hear my Bette Midler Soph & Ernie jokes :) Lately, I have been working hard on getting the technical side of editing as well with Adobe Audition and recently obtained a very large royalty free library and sound effects and am able to mix those down with voice overs as well. I can deliver in MP3 WAV, most any way you would like.
