Sophisticated, sultry, lively & real....

Voice Description

Sophisticated yet warm, with ability towards both sultry and real.
My vocal versatility can be utilized in both professional presentations and entertaining commercials. With an extensive background in classroom teaching as well as directing artistic projects I have the ability to engage my audience and hold their interest. This comes through in narrations, through my emotional intelligence in the word emphasis, as well as my lively spirit emanating vocally into commercials and the like. If you need the clear, concise delivery of a lawyer and the irascible playfulness of a fun lass...use my voice!

My Voice Experience

A commercial for Kawaguchi in Bellevue with Studio Five was my first experience. Recently, I played a teacher and a judge for an independent group in WA. There have been small jobs..and then 30 years of teaching, lecturing, acting and singing. I am well-versed in studio behavior, and how critical it is to get it right on the first take. With my background in teaching and the arts, I am a perfect candidate for your project.

My Training

I have taken over 6 years of acting and improvisation classes in L.A. and college programs. My teachers include Alan Arkin, Richard Dreyfuss, David Razowski (2nd City) and Matt Sampson, for improvisation and Lisa Pantone and Daphne Kirby for commercial work. I possess an M.A. in Theatre Arts, and teaching credentials at the elementary and secondary levels. I have recently received my ESL Certificate. I have taught classes in acting and singing for over 25 years and am well versed in the needs of the voice over industry. Currently I am complementing my academic and artistic experience with voice over workshops over the net. I also teach writing, as a secondary teacher and tutor, and can help with any journalism you may require. I am ready and quite able to complete your project with excellence and professionalism.

My Studio Equipment

I have a high-level, quality microphone and the ability to send on a professional, clear product.

Additional Skills

I have a world-view of cultures and history, as well as a dialect acquisition hobby. Always perfecting my speech, emotional range and dialects is a joy of mine. I am currently the Dialect Coach for a show on Whidbey Island, Washington...British Standard. I have been hired as Dialect Coach on 3 local theatre projects in the last year, and continue to teach drama to youth and adults through The Drama School and local theatres.
