Additional Skills

I'm a curious person and in this cyber age of instant knowledge I love to research the product I'm helping to brand. I will check your website and find out as much as I can about you so I know how to speak to your clients and audience. I'm skilled in analyzing and understanding scripts and I will find the peaks and valleys, the colors, the technology, the poetry, the human element of everything you and your company represents. I will be the voice behind your product with pride.

I am also a professional actor of stage and screen. I received my M.A. in Acting in London England. I also teach acting to children and adults and train new VO artists in preparation for recording their demos which I also produce.
