My Voice Experience

I have an excellent foundation in using my voice that makes me a natural for the voice over industry. In college and high school, I was prolific in winning dozens of Competitive Speech and Debate events and tournaments, culminating in three State Championships and two Regional Championships in speech.

As a disc jockey for KUPS-FM radio station for two years, I honed my voice skills and did voice overs for Public Service Announcements.

I have done voice over work for the Washington State Floor Covering Association for 10-15 minute webinar presentations.

Carpet To Go has used my voice overs on television commercials in the Seattle area (on and off for the past 15 years).

Professionally trained by Such A Voice (mentor - Ben Marney). Bachelor of Arts from the University of Puget Sound with three majors (including Economics, International Affairs, and French) with an additional emphasis in Communications and Speech.
