Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Mimicry comes natural for me so my voice has a tendency to take on the speaking characteristics of the people around me -- the rhythm of their voices, the tonality, the way the vowels are shaped.
My Voice Experience
My voice is the product of vocal training for my singing, an early background of drama and musical theatre, years fronting a successful 70s cover band and voiceover instruction from well known voiceover talent.

As a vocalist, the study and experimentation with my voice has been and continues to be a life long journey. Each day and each encounter brings inspiration for the characters that bring copy to life.
I appreciate the humor and creativity that goes into making advertising that grabs an audience the first time around and the talent and skill the voiceover artist brings to the final product.
I am realiable, eager to learn, flexible and I take direction well. I would love the opportunity to work with you.
