My Voice Experience

I have years of voiceover experience and have been the voice of thousands of radio commercials, both local and national.

My national commercials include: Freecreditreport website, which won an Echo Award from the Direct Marketing Association in 2003. I've also voiced national spots for Justlisted website, 1 800 Medicine, Proflowers, Tell Bell, Snubbies and do recordings for theWinerychannel, as well as KSCI-TV in Los Angeles.

I have recorded several audiobooks including, "What Comes After Crazy, Nobody Knows, Veronika Decides to Die," and others, which have gotten very favorable reviews.

I've also used the many character voices I do in numerous commercials.

Additional Skills

I am also a seasoned copywriter. I spent the last five years writing copy for Salem Communications and have written thousands of commercials in my career.

As a copywriter, it is easy for me to look at copy and quickly discover any typos or incorrect usage of grammar, which can then be pointed out to producers or directors and saves everyone time and money. I am also able to quickly cut out any extraneous verbiage that might be making the copy too long (with the client's discretion, of course).

Being a writer and a journalist also gives me a unique insight into how the words might be intended, which a reader sometimes doesn't pick up on.
