My Voice Experience

I have narrated several documentary projects and industrial film projects. This is where my expertise lies- in maintaining a consistent tone throughout a longer piece. For Levis and Oracle, I have been the voice of internal campaigns, meant to impact global audiences. I recently completed a documentary film to raise money for a school in Nepal.

I am also a composer and sound designer. My expertise expands my understanding of how the cadence,flow and tone of voice must match the content/context/messaging of the project.

I'm extremely good at working with scripts (language and word choice), to ensure cohesion and optimum impact.

Columbia University - English Lit and Journalism

10 years as a touring artist (singer/ performer)
Master of Ceremonies for various Galas and Celebrations

Additional Skills

I have been in and around production for the last 20 years, behind and in-front of the microphone. I also make a living as a Senior Copywriter for Fortune 500 marketing campaigns, so I am extremely aware how words / sound / music impact the success or failure of a project. VO comes naturally to me, since my background as a singer trained me to control my breath and my voice.

As a script writer, I'm also acutely aware of the power words - how they flow, how they land - the nuance of emphasis. I take direction extremely well.

I'm the executive producer at Artists for Literacy. This has given me access to many projects that involve a diverse sampling of voice and composers.

My office / studio is shared by EMOTO MUSIC. This is a world-class recording facility that I have access to for longer term projects.
