My Voice Experience

When I was 5, I asked my mother if I could pretend to be Australian at school that day. When I was 15, I played a Tonkinese mother. When I was 17, I started saying "y'all", though I'm from New York City. When I was 20, I struggled with my inability NOT to be British, and boy was it a struggle. And when I was 25, I began using customers as guinea pigs for whatever character I decided to be as their waitress that day. I've been pursuing my vocal career since I was born, and I'm damn good at it. I am a trained choral singer, I have a B.A. in Theatre from USC, I attended BADA in London where I trained with members of the RSC, and I have extensive improv training from The Second City, and I perform improv regularly with my group "The Good Ol' Days" at IO West. I have recorded for a National Geographic pilot, Podcasts, storyboard sessions and commercials.

My Studio Equipment

I have access to a complete and professional studio using Pro Tools or Twisted Wave. There are 2 available booths, both equipped with professional condenser microphones (Sennhiser MKH 416), and one booth is equipped with a mixing board.

Additional Skills

I'm a firecracker with a wealth of creativity and tenacity. I dive headfirst into every job I take and produce results. When I am not working on voiceovers, I am working out, spinning, baking, painting, or writing out a new character with new vocal characteristics. Maybe you can see them in my next improv show, or maybe you'll hear them on my podcast - 2 Moms in a Pod. No matter what, I am always creatin.
