Voice Description

I can alter my voice to fit a variety of different tones and styles. I have been a television or broadcast reporter for the past 17 years. However, years of voice coaching have also pushed for a conversational tone with the ability to demonstrate variety. I take direction well and can easily adjust my tone for your project. While broadcast pieces aren't as exaggerated in tone and inflection as commercial work, I still was able to cover a wide range of emotions in my deliveries from solemn to smiling. In conclusion, my range is flexible. Many of my stories over the past decade appeared on the CBS Evening News and morning shows. Since I performed live, on air, for most of my career, I am very open to doing on camera commercial work--especially if anyone has a need for a reporter character!!!

My Voice Experience

My voice experience began back in 1996 when I was getting my degree in journalism at Concordia University in Quebec, Canada. I did extra work in the broadcast field on the side, as I was specializing in print. It was an internship in my home town of Colorado Springs at one of the local TV stations that gave me what I needed to send out tapes and land my first job in TV. I was the everything girl for KREY TV in Montrose, Colorado for two years after graduating. I shot all of my own video, edited, tracked reports, and anchored a four minute nightly newscast. From there, I went on to report and fill-in anchor at KOAA-TV in Pueblo / Colorado Springs where I worked for four years (1998 - 2002). I had several sessions with voice coaches while at KOAA-TV. But then, in the fall of 2002, I finally made it! I made it to the Denver market where my pay was amazing and I would no longer have to struggle in my life. I started out in the mountain newsroom for CBS4 Denver, often doing pieces on the side for our parent network--CBS News, CBS Radio, and The Weather Channel. When the Kobe Bryant trial was going on in Eagle, Colorado, I was hired by Sports Fan Radio to report on that case, earning hundreds of extra dollars over the course of a year. After spending six years in the freezing cold climate of Summit County, Colorado, I couldn't take it any longer and transferred down to the Denver station where I worked as a one-man-band for my last four years there. That meant I shot my own video, edited, and reported daily. Many of my pieces continued to make it into network newscasts. I was laid off in December of 2012. I had been wanting to transition out of news, however. Now that I am no longer bound by my contract, I am free to pursue freelance or contract voice work and I am so excited to be doing this! This is something I have always wanted to do, and my dream is to support myself with this type of work while I write children's novels.

My Training

Mass Communications, UC Berkeley
Masters of Journalism, Concordia University
KOAA-TV (on the job voice coaching, as well as several sessions working with a voice coach over the course of my employment there from 1998 - 2002)
CBS4 Denver (on the job training and voice coaching, as well as repeated meetings with and consultant)

My Studio Equipment

My father is a broadcast engineer for Clear Channel. I have a padded set up for tracking at home using studio quality foam and a Blue microphone, Yeti USB that uses a USB port to plug into my computer rather than having to convert an XLR. I also have an engineer / voice over professional who I can rely on for guidance and questions. Although I don't have a phone patch, I have a Bluetooth ear piece that can easily be worn while I am tracking so you can monitor my sound over my cell phone and give direction in my ear.

Additional Skills

I have a multitude of interests. I currently live on five acres and have three horses of my own. I support myself. One of my horses I plan to train myself and hopefully use him in competiton one day. I am still a freelance print journalist on the side, writing for regional and nationally - circulated magazines. I am a published author. I have a black belt in TaeKwonDo; I was a Colorado State Certified Firefighter and held a red card as well. I just started an online store at www.etsy.com/shop/flowerfelicity where I express my creative side by selling pressed flower art and other items-- all of which I have made myself. My ultimate goal is to be a full time author, focusing on children's literature. I am hoping to support myself through freelance writing and voice work so that I can work from home and begin to realize that dream.
I also have this tiny sidebar of a goal to play a news reporter, either in a commercial or in voice over. Having been a TV reporter for the past 17 years, I always cringe at how stereotypical and horrible the reporter impersonations are! I could give a client something tremendously more realistic!
Also, this is difficult to put on the given checklists, but I would be willing to do low budget or no budget work for any non-profit that helps animals.
