from sultry and soothing to high energy
My natural voice is low register,SEXY and SOOTHING, but I AM from Ohio, so I have the enthusiastic, GIRL-NEXT-DOOR read at my fingertips.I think the Ohio thing is also what imparts a sense of TRUSTWORTHINESS and SINCERITY in my voice, and allows me to sound approachable, never off-putting. I use that in my authoritative reads,to impart leadership, but never condescension.
I LOVE doing HUMOR, from wry to bawdry,as that's essentially how I live my life.

My Voice Experience
My experience so far has been responding to people begging me to do their phone loops!I am always flattered with the requests, and am happy to oblige. Companies have ranged from luxury retail to corporate construction.
I honestly haven't put myself out there yet for broadcast projects, because I must honor SAG and AFTRA. I need this service, or an agent, to start navigating that!
I studied jornalism in college, and am an avid lover of the musicality and rhythm of words. I deeply respect writers, and understand there's a reason for every word in a piece.I have ALWAYS been seduced by voices,and the power they hold, and it is a dream to learn to use my own to it's full potential. When people are artistically compelled to listen, they learn.I love to share that experience!
My voiceover coaching team has been vast, as I have studied voiceover for several years, both the performance and business sides...I have done workshops and classes with Pete DeMeo,Johnna Gottlieb,Anna Graduno,Marla Kirban and Bryant Faulk, and Roy Renza, just a few of the luminaries who teach and work in the industry in New York.I am a perpetual student, and will always make continued study a part of this life.I can't get enough.
My freelance life in modelling,both print and commercials, taught me everything I need to know about auditions, agents,professionalism, and MAINTAINING all the tools of the craft. I know how to run my own business, and I am the ultimate professional.
My Studio Equipment
Thanks to the guidance of some of my favorite New York based engineers, I now have the capacity to record auditions and export mp3 files from home (I use Audacity at this point, but am contemplating an upgrade to Pro Tools soon).I really do love being a constant student of the technology
HOWEVER, I will never be able to truly compete with New York's extraordinary engineers, and amazing studios are always just a few steps away from me in the city. I am happy to lay down tracks with Bryant Faulk at Abacus Audio,or Roy Renza at Startrax, or any of ther guys at Full House.
My very first experience with Voiceover came with one of my first commercial jobs with Clairol years ago, when I moved to New York to model.We were shooting on green screen and having a multitude of technical problems. It got so late,they came to me around 4am, and essentially begged me to hop in the booth and record the copy! I had no idea what I was doing, but was THRILLED at the prospect of such a job.
Ever since that job, I have used my vast experience in fashion, beauty,fitness, and now aging to support my product knowledge and think about my audience.A TRUE connection is key.
I have harbored the desire and passion all these years, in many forms, and am now ready to make it happen with ALL the pieces in place.Full circle.
