My Voice Experience

I have a strong foundation in voice training and teach theatre and electronic media performance at a university. I enjoy (and excel in) all forms of voice over, from phone messaging to professional presentations, to video games. I have extensive knowledge of the International Phonetic Alphabet and go out of my way to learn the proper pronunciation of unusual names, titles, or technical vocabulary. I've provided professional voice over services (t.v./radio commercials, phone messaging, presentations, technical narrations) for more than 20 years.
