My Voice Experience

Most of my voice over work has been for public radio doing local live breaks during NPR-syndicated radio shows, which could be anything from letting the listeners now about what's coming up next to live-breaking news to weather report. Also have recorded underwriting spots and hourly news reports.

For decades, I've been singing with an emphasis in Jazz, Blues, Broadway and light opera. Have sung on stage with or without a mic, and am equally comfortable singing with or without one. I don't need a mic and can project well. I am a mezzo soprano.

My Training

In 2011, I took a seven-week radio broadcasting class with New Mexico Public Radio 89.1 KANW, where I am currently a local radio host and record some underwriting spots and fill in for the station's sole news reporter when he is on vacation.

Have trained off and on with jazz singer Patty Stephens, 2010-2011.

For five years, I took singing lessons from opera singer, Dale Schriemer, when living in Grand Rapids, Mich.

For three years while in Grand Rapids, Mich., I trained in Jazz Modern dance with Tito Hernandez, who is now a dance instructor with the North Carolina Theatre Conservatory.

Have taken Jazz Modern dance classes off and on prior to that.

While in college at Syracuse University, I took a year of voice lessons.

Five years during childhood, I trained for the Olympics as a competitive figure skater from 1956 Olympic Silver Medalist, Ronnie Robertson.

I have a B.A. in English from Syracuse University and graduated in 1987.

For 25 years, I worked in the newspaper field doing a myriad of duties from reporting and writing articles to copy editing articles to creating informational graphics.

Beginning in January 2012, I've worked as a background extra on three different TV shows, In Plain Sight, Vegas and Longmire.

My Studio Equipment

My equipment is minimal. I have a recording app on my iPhone 4s and have GarageBand and Audacity on my laptop.

Additional Skills

I have a working knowledge of how to record and edit audio with Adobe Audition and Audacity. I am comfortable using the sound board at the radio station, potting up and down several audio tracks at one time.

I'm comfortable speaking and/or singing into a mic.

I am proficient in using various Adobe software.
