My Voice Experience

My first voice over job, at age 10, was a radio spot for Comcast as "annoying kid." It was apparently so affective, radio DJs all over California were offering ransom for me.
Subsequently, I trained as a singer and actress.
I narrated a popular children's animated film called, "The Deep," which toured the festival circuit all the way to Cannes.
Over the past two years, I have been working a lot with large corporations on various industrial videos: from a long series of how-to's for a major car company's new high-tech systems to the avatar voice for a training video on corporate compliance for a large investment bank. I am very quick with technical copy in technology, medicine, finance, and other general business. In fact, it's a great way to learn new things!
