Voice Description

I have a deep distinctive sound that captures the listener's ear. Professionally recording for over 30 years, I have developed a wide variety of vocal characters from the working mom to the demanding boss, from the every-woman "real" person to the broad cartoon characters. Because I have a deep, husky voice, the "sexy" sound is natural but with the right interpretation my voice can become a nagging housewife or an old lady. I'm an actress with loads of credits... give a listen to see if I might be right for your next project.

My Home Base

Chicago, Illinois, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Accents include mid-western, south-side Chicago, Brooklyn, Texan, Surfer, Jewish, French, Spanish, British, Cockney, Scottish, general U.S. southern, and with a little research, I can do any accent that you request, that I have not already listed here.
Characterizations include sexy, uneducated, snobby, smooth and mellow, lisps, over-enthusiastic, bored, goofy, whimsical, deadpan, ethereal, tough and gritty, ghostly, demanding, crazy and authoritative.
Characters are my strong suit. They include grandma's (both real and broad), storyteller, little kid, country-many variations from hillbilly to cowgirl to redneck, socialite, monsters (the sky's the limit on that one), Jewish mother, best friend, narrator, medical professional and any animal.
Visuals of the character help me to create the ideal voice that is perfect for your project.

My Voice Experience

30 years professional voice artist, on-camera actress, character model and special event entertainer.
AWARD WINNER: AMERICAN ENTERTAINMENT MAGAZINE BEST FEMALE PERFORMER 2006
Advertising Clients include: Bozell Worldwide; DDB Chicago; Ogilvy & Mather; Leo Burnett; Foote, Cone & Belding; Jack Morton Productions; Nightingale-Conant; Harley Davidson; McDonalds Productions; Rynne Marketing Group. Others upon request.
I have voiced nearly every possible "type" of voice-over out there from commercials and industrials to database voice systems, computer and video games, live announcer, pod casting and audio books. Cartoons and characters are my favorite. Straight commercial reads, testimonials and industrials seem to bring in the majority of my work but I think that's because it has the largest market demand. Timing and pace are natural for me and I can take a lot of copy, squeeze it into the mandated time frame and still make it sound natural.
With my own state of the art digital sound studio, I can create your project with the professional quality you desire. My turn around time is quick, usually same day or overnight.

Additional Skills
