My Training

I received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College where I studied music and economics and have received my Master's from Columbia University. I had an opportunity to work in a Grammy award winning voice over studio in New York that got me started me with some small pieces of work. I have also been a journalist/newspaper editor and have a strong understanding (and appreciation for) good, clean copy. As a musician (electric bass, guitar) I am extremely comfortable in any studio situation and know the ropes of the other side of the glass as well. My musicality comes across in my voice and my instinct for framing characters tonally.

My Studio Equipment

MXL condenser mic, Soundforge/Audacity

Additional Skills

I have been an active musician for 20 years in and around NYC and have studied information and digital resource management. I have a passion for science, Earth sciences in particular, and would love to do some work for museum exhibits at some point in my career.
