My Voice Experience
Often told I have a voice that commands attention whether in television, radio, live theater or public speaking. I cut my teeth working in a recording studio as a teenager, recording everthing from jingles and background singing to being the studio "voice" for numerous commercials, political spots and training tapes. I even had a hit record out on the Dot label! Don't even ask the year!! Presently featured as the principal voice talent of the State of Louisiana on their museum system website, as well as at the old State Capitol building in Baton Rouge, where my voice welcomes visitors to a multi-media, historical exhibit. My ballet narration (both writing and voicing) for Ballet Concerto (Texas) and Classical Ballet Academy (Orange County) is unique and engaging. (Check out the demos!) An excellent public speaker, spokesperson, training facilitator or mistress of ceremonies, my many years of voice acting experience make me the best choice for commercials, political ads, and PSA's, two of which have won major advertising awards. Let my voice speak for your business!
