Previous to my role as the corporate university voice, I held various acting roles for the Disney Company at their resort in Orlando, Florida.

Additional Skills

Voice over work is like acting for the blind. It doesn't matter that the audience can only hear you. To create a believable character, you must put your entire body and soul into the work. I thrive on this and would love to put my passion for acting to work for your product or service. I come from a background where the customer is always right and I promise to work with you on your project until you have the outcome you need and expect. I guarantee that hiring me will be a win-win situation!
