Voice Description

Clear speaking and emotional. Great range; equally adept at being both low and subtle, and loud and noticeable. Very good with dictation and word pronunciation, with a highly noticeable and attention-grabbing voice.

Audiobook readings are a specialty, with a tendency to differentiate greatly between character voices.

My Voice Experience

I have extensive training in local readings of books and short stories in my area, and have been a member of community theater and the acting scene since I was a child. As I have grown, I've spread my reach to more diversive work, dabbling in songwriting, screen acting, and filmmaking.

I was the "voice" for productions used for my High School and College Radio Clubs.

My Training

Trained in theater acting in my childhood by Victoria Sylvestri of Six by the Park Productions, and later by Sally Kaplan of From Stage to Screen Productions.

Extensively trained in emotive voiceover work.

Workshops taken with Anthony Scarron of John Jay Proscenium.

Two Year Liberal Arts Degree with a focus in Communication from Dutchess Community College in Poughkeepsie, NY, where I took and excelled in screen acting and audio recording.

Currently studying communications with a focus in media performance at SUNY New Paltz.

My Studio Equipment

I am capable with Avid Media Composer, and use a Blue Snowball Microphone or a Zoom H1 to record. Capable of audio editing with Audacity, Garageband, Final Cut, and Sony Vegas.

Additional Skills

Okay, if you're reading this, I want you to understand one thing: I will not rest until you have the perfect take. I am extremely hardworking, and will record for hours at a time until I have made the best possible material for your project. This work will be done on my end, at no extra expense to you, and you will see this through the quality of the end result.

Regardless of project size, I treat everything like a professional gig. You will not find a harder worker on this site.

My voice is very flexible, and can be adjusted to fit any character. Try me. You won't regret it.
