I am the voice of a young woman who knows too much

Voice Description

My Voice Experience

I started doing voice overs when I was 14. My first job was for the summer olympics on NBC. You know how they interview foreign athletes that don't speak any English? So they are speaking in their native tongue and then some voice comes in with an accent and is superimposed over their voice? I did that.
My family is from Slovakia and this gymnast was from Bulgaria, which I guess as far as the United States is concerned sounds the same.
I was used to hearing my grandparents talking with a heavy accent and my agent calls me up and says, here, call these producers and read them something in an Eastern European accent. So I did. And I booked the job from my living room.
I went into the studio and had a lot of fun!

A few years later, I found myself at an audition for an animated series.
They gave me the copy, gave me some notes and told me I was playing a little girl.
I got to the microphone and all of a sudden this crazy little girls voice came out of me.
As an actress, it was very liberating to act and not have to worry about what you look like or how you move.
I booked that job and two others for animation soon after.
And I realized something...I'm kind of good at this and it's a LOT of fun.
I've been doing voice overs ever since. Past work includes: commercials, animation, web and audiobooks.

Additional Skills

I am an actress, writer and director.
I know how to read copy and how to direct myself.
For the last animated series I did, I had to record in Los Angeles while the director and producer were in NY.
A fellow actor stepped in to help me direct, but his comments to me were basically, I am only here to press the record button.
We were doing one take to match lip flap ( it was a Japanese Animation project and we were dubbing in English voices). There was one line that was quite lengthy, one that you would think would take a while to get to match the cartoon.
I did it in one take, it was like shooting a hole in one!!
My director was amazed!
He said he'd never seen anyone do that in one take before.

Yet another director for a separate job called me "the One Take Wonder"!
