Voice Description

I have a very warm and deep voice. This would be good for narrations or for interludes/ads. I once interviewed and was then offered to work as a "phone companion/sex" operator-but turned it down. I also volunteered briefly for a local radio station and had a show called "the Downlow." It was R&B music and so my voice matched the type of music I played. I can also do presentations well as I am able to speak clearly and with precision. I can immitate a young teen as well as an older adult with my voice and took voice-over lessons twice through a local college. The teacher had worked for years in the industry (was even friends with Jimmy Stewart before he passed!). I feel that my voice would work well in video games as well as general ads, but mostly, the richness in my voice would be ideal for narrations.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I can personify young and sexy very well and can do a Russian accent well since my husband is Russian (I have learned his accent to a tee).

My Voice Experience

-Radio DJ
-Voice-Over study
-Provided recordings for local singers to use as practice for warming up their voices (I am also a singer)
-Auditioned and offered a job as a phone sex operator (though turned it down)

I am also a strong writer and have had my stories published in local magazines including "The Stranger" (Seattle independent paper) and Seattle Central Community College magazine. My "day job" is that I work as a social worker interviewing and writing homestudies on people who want to adopt. I have worked with so many people over the last ten years that I have learned ALOT about characters and character types. Working in social work has shown me so many sides to life that I feel makes my experience and confidence very rich. Mostly, I have enjoyed reading to my children, making up different voices while reading their books to make it more exciting. They LOVE this! My husband (and ex lovers) have told me for years that I should do voice-over work because of how rich my voice is. I have a friend who works in the gaming industry and has also suggested that I try to do work for gaming. I am pretty inexperienced in voice-over work, and therefore new to this world. But I am eager to learn and excited about finally at least checking out what potential I might have. Thank you!

My Training

Various voice-over workshops at Bellevue Community College; Radio DJ workshops (three classes and volunteer work) also at same college (KBCS-public radio). I studied singing/music in college and also took vocal lessons after college just to strengthen my voice. I LOVE to sing and feel that I am talented in this area.
