My Voice Experience

Trained as a classical actress at a British conservatory and the American Conservatory Theater. I studied Linklater technique, dialects, have a great ear. I'm a natural character actress with a wide range.
I performed many Shakespeare classics across the United States, and many new plays and classics in San Francisco and New York City. I played twin sisters separated-at-birth (one British, one American raised) on the long running TV drama AS THE WORLD TURNS from 1986-87. I've performed a variety of roles in film, TV, industrials and on stage in Los Angeles.
I also make my living writing for film and TV; I've edited and doctored a lot of scripts. My training in classics combined with my stage experience and work with scriptwriting gives me a distinct edge in bringing copy to life as a voice-over artist.
