Warm, Sultry, Goofy, Wry, Newsy, Heartfelt, Evil
I have a naturally deep, smooth voice which works well for documentary narrations, serious commercials, etc.
I can also "lighten up" to be the gal next door, the sarcastic new yorker, the approachable and knowledgeable professional, the friendly and direct telephony voice, etc.

My Voice Experience
I began as an intern at a small radio station in Walnut Creek, California, DJing and writing/recording ad copy. I moved to the east coast and pursued a radio career via overnight DJing at an A.M. station in Waterbury. I then got a job as an airborne traffic reporter covering morning and afternoon commute traffic for various stations. I next took a job at Hartford's Oldies Station as their morning drive news anchor for both the AM and FM sides of the station and was there for about a year and a half when I got an offer from Boston to move there and do weather reporting. As I was mulling this choice over one fine February morning at 4:30 a.m., scraping ice from my windshield and sobbing, I realized I desperately wanted to move back to San Francisco, which I immediately did. I got an agent and proceeded from there into voiceover work.
Since then I have voiced documentaries for Lucas Films (Young Indiana Jones Series, Manifest Destiny Series), PBS (Irena Sendler story) and ID Channel (Wives With Knives) as well as recording many jobs for the Safeway Foundation and Safeway internal instructional industrials, sexy valentine ad voiceovers (Tiny Prints Romantic Hero), political ads and more.

My Studio Equipment
Mac Garageband, Blue Snowball mic, small soundproofed studio. In process of building up. I have recorded and edited with quality results given this set up and intend to expand.
I am versatile. I not only voice, I also edit, so I understand, in most cases, what is wanted and how to deliver it. I am intelligent enough to know I don't always know everything; I take direction well. I love what I do and I believe I do it well.
