Voice Description

I have a FUN YOUNG, upbeat, conversational, GIRL NEXT DOOR voice, MID TONED- SERIOUS but FRIENDLY sound for informational pieces. And A WARM FULL mid-toned "Diane Sawyer" sound, but also can sound COZY or Enticing. My experience includes commercials for Boston Market, Cosi flatbread, CATO, and Virginia Lottery just recently. I am available most days and nights and have ISDN capabilities. I have years of experience in the booth for voice work as well as jingle singing.

My Voice Experience

I started out singing jingles while attending University of Miami as a Jazz Vocal Major. This lead to doing voice-overs here in Miami, including Jaguar, Taco John's, Westland Mall, and various car dealerships in the area. I was going strong until the birth of my third child, and it became too difficult to get around to studios. Now I am back, with a recording booth in my home with ISDN. My previous background in recording has helped me tremendously with my understanding of editing and the marketing mindset- and I am enjoying working from my home. I am working with several production companies in the Miami/Orlando area, and have already recorded for Boston Market, Canon, Lexus, Cosi, CATO, the Virginia Lottery, and Walmart since I've been back up these past 6 months. I would love to work for You, and would appreciate the opportunity.

Additional Skills

I started out as a singer/recording artist, so I have a lot of experience with recording. I was the lead Singer with Will To Power, a Billboard #1 dance band in the early 90's. I was a top jingle singer in Miami, which lead to my doing Voice-overs, for clients like Love94, and Jaguar, and Westland Mall, and Taco John's just because people liked my speaking voice and I was there... But I ended up loving it! If you need anything sung--I'm your girl-- but I also have a lot of personality and presence in my speaking voice, along with years of experience in just doing commercials... I am confident that I can give you exactly what you need for your project. So give me a try!
