My Training

BA: Political Science, Minor in Theatre (Portland State University)

EDUCATION: My voice-over training has come primarily from working and studying. I'm an actress, I do films, and a lot of commercials. I've always used my voice. Throughout college I reported on local politics and I did live radio interviews. Over the last few years I've supplemented my income with VO jobs here and there. Two years ago, I landed a permanent position doing announcements and sweepers for Static Beach Radio. Steady Radio Work has been and continues to be a great education. As the needs of every station are different, I find I'm always making changes and learning.

Kimberly Lewis - Current (1 year) - 8 Characters of Comedy
Scott Sedita - 1 year - Improv Comedy
Kate McGregor Lewis - workshop - Scene Study

My Studio Equipment

My studio equipment consists of a 2008 Mac. I am able to record directly into the computer and send Voice Over tracks via email. I have a top of the line microphone and a padded space for sound.

Additional Skills

I am passionate about politics and quietly obsessed with documentaries and bad comedies. I've played everything from an Ax-Wielding Murderer to a patient teacher, to a Mom fighting off Fast Food Monsters with a wink and a smile to feed kids Hormel "dinner bites." My voice-over work ranges from sexy wry announcer to cancer surviving mother to an air-headed teenager.

My other interests are producing, teaching, dancing and enjoying as much as I can. I was a part time florist, part time bartender for a few years. Now I'm back to producing and I'm developing a show for Discovery Channel. I also teach acting workshops at an international film school.

I am very excited about doing more voice over work for commercials, industrials, radio, film, etc... I look forward to doing narration, animation, and video games. Animation projects and video games because it sounds like a blast and narration because I feel my voice is naturally suited for it.
