upbeat, smooth, clear, young mom, sexy, edgy
An established NYC producer once called me his favorite all-rounder.
That's me... I am cast as the young mom, the smooth spokesperson, that wry voice in your head, the voice that makes your sales training sound easy, I'm the screaming chick voice on the car spots... but i'm also the sexy voice with that girl-from-next-door slant. I'm pretty flexible.
In a nutshell... I've got a higher register that's slightly melodic with an inviting but REAL sound that I can morph into just about whatever you need. I've been doing vo for awhile...so believe me when I say I've done just about everything there is to do...nearly (clear throat here).
