Voice Description

My voice bends easily to create smooth narration, bright commercial reads or characters for games and animation (kids voices and tough vixens a specialty).

My Training

B.F.A. in Theater from Point Park College in Pittsburgh, Improvisational training from the Second City in Chicago and Avery Schrieber's workshops in LA. Additional voice workshops in Looping with Terri Douglas and Sandy Holt and Promo work with Joyce Castellanos in LA.

I have been teaching voice-over workshops for 10 years.

My Studio Equipment

I have a small studio at home, suitable for on-hold messaging and internet broadcast quality recording. For projects with greater technical and sonic requirements, I have an established relationship with Dave and Dave in North Hollywood - a full-service recording studio (). I use them for several of my current voice123 clients and the results have been excellent.

Additional Skills

Great kids voices, cartoon voices and strong promo and direct marketing reads.

On-hold and narration demos available upon request.
