Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Accents and Dialects: American (California, New York, Texan) based on my tendancy to adapt my voice to the native speech tones when I travel. I can do a Central London-esque British accent if you have me listen to a few audio recordings first.

My Voice Experience

I was a live on-air radio host and producer for five years on a women’s’ show called “Radioactive Feminism” plus TV appearances as a “consumer panelist” on programs such as Style by Jury Father’s Day special 2007 (as a juror), MuchMusic, Benmergui Live!, The Eugenia Last Show, and a feature on a documentary titled “Western Eyes”. Slice TV also filmed me in June 2007 for an episode of Plastic Makes Perfect on public opinion concerning cosmetic injections.

During my on-air radio days only a few of my segments were pre-recorded so I had to be "on" with my Q&A's and conscious of my timing and speech inflections to be understood in a clear precise manner.

In September 2006 I sang live at a Cancer Society benefit concert the ballad “I Hope You Dance” by Leanne Womack. After my performance the gala host said I sounded just like her. I did that performance on a dare and had no idea my voice could do it. People have frequently commented that my way with speech enunciation can really tell a story as much as just stating the words. Hence their idea I check out voiceovers. I didn’t give it any thought until November when I participated on a female entrepreneur’s roundtable podcast titled “Cubicle Divas” by executive coach Leesa Barnes. Then …when the Crystal Andrus Show on Hay House radio had me on as a live guest in March 2007 on an Internet broadcast for a half hour it convinced me to give voiceovers a go.

Thanks to a few friends in in the TV and Radio production business ... I have sourced a list of professional recording studios at reasonable prices for projects that require full studio capability.

My Training

My initial career dream was to be a journalist in the foreign correspondent kind of way. Instead I worked as a public relations executive in the financial, health, and pharmaceutical sectors before entering the conference industry. In my work life I am called upon to do public speaking during business summits and workshops introducing executive presenters to a large audience.

I have been involved on and off over the years with Toastmasters and try to make it to an Improv class when I can. After my benefit performance I began more formal singing lessons and joined a choir. I am a member in a
storytellers association for those seeking hands on experience in front of an audience of various ages and stages of life.
