My Voice Experience

Karyn has performed dozens of audiobooks for a number of clients; and has experience in documentary, telephony, commercial, animation, and radio.

She brings a passion for performance to every project: audiobooks, documentaries, telephony, animation, museum tours, corporate narration, e-learning, commercials, ADR, and so much more. She's fun to work with and has a flair for tailoring her reading to the needs of each script. She delivers a high-quality product, and values her client relationships.

Karyn is a classically-trained actor with over 25 years of experience, and a degree in English literature. She works both from her professional in-home studio and at LA-area recording studios. She's intelligent, warm, thoughtful, and a little geeky – with a great sense of humor. (And did we mention her snarky side?)

"I read books out loud. Best. Job. Ever."
