My Home Base

, Alberta, Canada

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Accents: Variants of British, German, French, and Italian.

Characters:
I love making animal characters and imagining what they would sound like. A really yippy and enthusiastic terrier, speaking between huffs and puffs...versus a lazy old German Sheperd who says few words between constant sighs from lack on enthusiasm.

I once had to be a horse speaking with "selling" dialogue. That was interesting...however it wasn't one of my proudest moments.

People:

There are plenty of interesting people around, and a few I've taken under my wing to imitate like:

Bonnie- the easily frazzled late 40 something who gets in a tiff simply by asking to borrow her pen. She can never find it under the mess of papers on her desk. IF she does find it, watch out! She'll throw a quick and almost unnoticed threat your way in the case you forget to return it.

Doug: the overly caffinated, red in the face, spikey haired salesman, who is usually smiling like a manic...until you ask him a question. Then............. his face goes blank with thought......and DING! Thought processed...answer jibbers off his tongue and the smiling and twitching resumes.

Stephanie: The voluptuous blonde power house who knows what she wants and gets it with the bat of her eye lashes. But don't be fooled. It goes from sweet to SUCK IT in less than 0.6 seconds.

My Voice Experience

I've been voicing as an announcer/narrative/characters in radio ads for 5 years.

My Training

Broadcast Jounalism Diploma 2005

Radio Commercial Writer from 2007 - Present

Double Divas Voice Acting Workshop with Deb Munro and Elley Rae Hennessey this past October.

I've discovered so much more of the voice over world with the help of my daughter...listening to her audio books, watching animations, and so on.
I've also been playing/pretending/ and reading to her for years. It's been great practice for chracter development.
I've also been involved in theatre and enjoy singing my little heart out!

My Studio Equipment

At Home: MXL 990 USB
Pop Filter
Sony Dynamic Stereo Head Phones
Audacity

At Work: A full radio production grade recording studio complete with Adobe Audition.

Additional Skills

I truly believe in "doing what you love, and loving what you do", and here I am doing it.
One of favorite places in the whole world is standing in front of the microphone. That's my home, my stage.

I've worked in radio now for over 5 years and am so exicted to dive into new mediums. TV, Internet, audio books, animations etc.
My voice is flexible and I possess great acting skills.
I'm always up for a challenge and will give my absolute best.
I do voice overs mostly evenings and weekends and offer 48 hour or less turnaround.
