Additional Skills

I possess over 25 years of experience in marketing, communications, advertising, copywriting, and branding which I leverage to interpret and suggest (diplomatically, of course) improvements to various voice-over scripts. I am a highly skilled writer in narrative and commercial formats, and this expertise is a value-added service I offer.

Further, my extensive experience in professional services--international development consulting, business consulting, and travel consulting--has emphasized the importance of developing and sustaining strong client relationships. This perspective has conveyed to my VO business: I treat each audition and each project as an opportunity to develop a long-term, meaningful, valuable, and mutually beneficial client relationship. It's about my voice, but it's also about my reliability, responsiveness, understanding of my client's business, and professionalism.

Finally, when I'm able, I give back to my community, using my voice as an offering: I've narrated numerous "Story Times" at the local public library to not only encourage children to read, but to help them realize the wonders of stories and story-telling.
