Additional Skills

I'm a natural born communicator and have spent most of my career writing, speaking and influencing others as a public relations executive. I have found that the skills I've honed in PR are directly applicable to my career in voiceover. In PR, my day is spent digesting and interpreting ideas and spinning them into fresh concepts that can be communicated effectively; then, using my voice I massage the ideas until they're so delicious, any reporter would want to tell the story. I approach VO copy the same way - I interpret the writer's vision and deliver a truthful and honest performance that is true to their concept and gives them what they want and more.
