My Voice Experience

Here is a list of the range of work that I've done:

- Instructional DVDs: cooking with celebrity chefs. I did the 2 min. narration overview of how to use the DVD (2005)

- 1-800 Number service for Comcast US-wide. I've recorded over 3,000 messages for Comcast ranging from a stable, communicative voice to hyping it up for special Pay-Per-View for sports and special entertainment offers with the WE, Hallmark, AMC, HBO, and other cable channels. 2005-present

- Utility companies' 1-800 services US-wide for Custom Promotional Communications and JetDial (2006-present)

- Instructional language program: Onlingo. Executive Produced the 16 CD series for Spanish and French. VO work conducted by me was both in English and Spanish. Multiple characters from food servers/ waitress in Argentina to a receptionist at a hotel in Puerto Rico to a flamenco dancer in Spain. Also did VO narration for all 16 CDROMs and CDs on how to use the CDs and CDROMs

- PBS Kid's Show "DOOF", or Food spelled backwards radio spot to entice parents and kids to come to an event (2008)

My Training

Prior to any VO work, I hired VO talent as Executive Producer of entertainment products.
During the instructional language program I worked on for 16 CDs/ 8 CDROMs, I conducted the search for VO talent, hired and directed the VO talent. All work was conducted in a professional studio.

The key area that I honed as Exec. Producer and director was "DIRECTION". In other words, the VO must follow the director's guidance to make the project go smoothly. I also learned that not all copy is well written. Sometimes improvisation is necessary by the VO but it must be "ok'd" by the director - often times the studio environment can be very fun and relaxed and this makes for an easier session. It's important to induce that environment for the VO to feel comfortable and therefore, more at ease to carry out strong VO work.

My background is in Marketing Communications and Public Relations. I always pay special attention to how a topic is presented. Delivery is so much part of the success!
