Voice Description

My voice style ranges from upbeat and casual to professorial and weighty, with an age range of roughly 30-50. trustworthy and believable. I take direction well and am easy to work with. I can bring weight and impact to the shortest of scripts.
My delivery also has a pleasing rhythm for narration, whether deeper and more serious for history,nature or crime documentaries, or more casual and upbeat for cooking and travel shows.
I have experience with the specific requirements for technical and medical narration, blending comfortable familiarity with Latin and medical terms and a confident, educated tone.

My Voice Experience

After being told literally 100s of times that I should pursue voice work, in 2009 I began taking Voice classes with the renowned VoiceTrax in California, as well as working one on one with experienced Voice Actors.
The following year I recorded my first national spot, doing audio and video for United Healthcare. Since then I have recorded work for clients large and small, ranging from local businesses to PG&E and top Fast Food companies. From commercials and corporate training to voice mail systems. This is not a hobby, it is a full time career.
I have done radio and TV commercial spots, as well as long form TV and film narration, and internet video voice over for new product introductions and technical instructions.
I enjoy the challenge of working with the client, asking questions and offering alternatives as needed, to make sure they get a voice result that surpasses their expectations. I can also offer input on copywriting and editing as I have worked in both the advertising and editing fields in the past.

My Training

Bachelors Degree from Eastern US Liberal Arts college.
Over five years of ongoing Voice training with top trainers from LA and San Francisco.
I have also worked as an editor and advertising copywriter.

My Studio Equipment

My studio consists of a Gold Series VocalBooth isolation studio outfitted with two Marshall Electronics Harlan Hogan MXL VO:1-A mics, each run though Microport Pro pre-amps. I use Twisted Wave on a Mac system for recording and editing.

Additional Skills

I have worked for large Fortune top 20 corporations and small concerns. As well as voice skills, I have experience writing and editing commercial copy. I am very familiar with the requirements of online training and educational deliveries. My goal is to leave each client knowing they have a trusted partner for this and any future voice projects.

Payment Methods Accepted
