My Voice Experience

Lucent Technologies in the late 90's was my first voice over after attending the Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. This was the universal greeting, the prompt tree, customer service, individual messages for top executives.

AmeriMerchant Cash Advance Company, in New York. This work was done in the same manner, the universal greeting for both east and west coast, prompt tree, customer service. Also Spanish version done as a notated script. I can do any language, with light practice.

UnderTag Media in New York, Universal greeting and customer service tree.

I have used my talents for voice over work non gratis in many situations. This was because I was working at some of these places at the time. I have done voice over work in private film projects. I have been doing voice over work for over 20 years. I am now expanding my vocal training and acting experience into a full time career.

My Training

American Academy of Dramatic Arts 1974-1974
HB Studios 1980-1981
UCB 2003 to Present

Classic training in Eastern Standard Speech, Very pleasing voice, excellent ear for the tone of the voice over. Relaxed, for selling, Brisk for business, peppy and hip for teenagers. High and thin not forced for babies.

My Studio Equipment

My work over the last 20 years has been in a studio setting. This includes the telephone work for the major companies listed above. I know what works for my voice, headphone positioning for maximum effect, no heavy breathing etc.

Additional Skills

I am also an Executive Assistant and my voice has been one of the main reasons for my success. I have represented presidents and owners of major corporations, as they are pleased with my voice. For my business history, feel free to check out my profile for business on Linked In.

I also do a great deal of theatre. Mostly improv lately as the classically trained acting I have taken all my adult life can be limiting. If you want to hear my voice, all you have to do is call the companies I listed in my profile. My voice is also used to say "please wait" on most phone recordings from my Lucent Technology days.
