Chola/Cholo, Mexican, Country/Southern, Jewish Mother, British/English, Italian, Russian, Unique character voices. For example, I created a character named Furtle or Tish, half fish half turtle, the voice sounds as if I am under water. Most people think the voice is edited till I perform the voice for them.

My Training

I am a stand-up comedian and many of my jokes consists of impressions, sound effects, character voices, etc..

Ive taken several imporov classes as well as belonging to a few imporov groups.

I've attended many acting classes including commercial, TV, film, Soap opra.

I have also attended some writing and creative writing classes.

I play the trumpet and guitar and I currently take lessons for both.

I also perform in theater.

My Studio Equipment

I have access to a recording studio, editing equipment, background music and sound effects. I have a smart phone and I can record on my phone and send over. Or, I can record on my laptop.

Additional Skills

I am extremely easy to work with and I take direction very well. The producer at Cost 103.5 and MyFM 104.3, he called me the one hit wonder. I'd read the scrip once, read it aloud and usually nail it on the first or second take. He said I was meant to be in voiceovers. I have super thick skin so not a lot gets to me. I have worked on many sets as well as done many voice over spots and I know what it means to be a professional. I'm a team player. I will go above and beyond to make sure the project as a whole is a success. I'll work late, come in on short or no notice, I've worked free to help someone out (I prefer to be paid lol), etc... I worked on the Ghost Whisperer for a year and they called me Sunshine because I have such a happy disposition most all of the time.
