My Voice Experience

As a young teenager, family and friends continually requested my verbal imitations of neighbors, friends, persons with different accents and local dialects. This would generate laughter but when in mom's earshot I was scolded for mocking others. At the time neither myself or my parents realized this was a vocational talent I possessed and I obediently repressed my talent, expressing only on the rare occasions of parental free environments, accompanied with feelings of rebellion. Cut to 2004, when I was reminded of my talent and it was suggested to me I pursue a career in the field. It was then I had my voice demo produced. My first job was with the University of Rhode Island for an educational video. Subsequently, they hired me for VO and on camera work on other educational videos. From there I was hired for a poetry reading on a CD project, an English language version of a 10 minute spa commercial for an Italian company and an animated character for a children's entertainment venue. I was residing in Rhode Island which remained limited in the entertainment industry. My time became occupied and impassioned with two of my own projects I produced. I recently moved to New York City and now am pursuing voice over work as it is what I love most along side working on my own production.

Additional Skills

In my perpetual pursuit of a homeopathic, holistic and spiritually guided lifestyle, I practice daily meditation and facilitate meditations in various venues. Following numerous requests from others, I am now in the process of designing a guided meditation CD. I have survived serious life threatening illnesses along side major family issues including illness, death and turmoil. I have lived to tell about all this with grace, a caring spirit and a positive attitude, but importantly I have gained a tremendous amount of compassion and insight for those suffering through health or any other life circumstantial illness, tragedy, trauma, crisis or difficulty.
