My Voice Experience

I communicate effectively. Be it painting vivid imagery, adopting expertise, injecting humor, creating personas, even animation,they are all well within my wheelhouse. All of my diverse experiences lend credibility,( a key factor in voice acting), to any project, whether its commercials, narration, even animation.Remember...it's not what you say...but how you say it!!

My Training

I study with Marla Kirban & Associates in New York. I have a Bachelor of Science in Communications from Boston University and a Jurist Doctor of Law from University of Baltimore Law School. During college I was involved with their radio station and active in Broadcast Journalism, BU Radio, and AV production. I have interned at several lobbying firms in Washington D.C. where I developed opportunities for public speaking. Additionally, as a lawyer, I found myself utilizing voice technique as well as acting during negotiations and trials. The sincerity I am able to portray exceeds typical abilities. Moreover, I travel to New York City and Washington D.C. quite frequently and am available always for auditions and performances.
