My Voice Experience

I've done a bit of all of it. I started with commercials and jingles for British Airways, moved onto animation for short films, and landed for several years as the educational training voice for a company hired to voice projects for The U.S Navy, Gap, Blue Cross, United Airlines, Crystal Cruises, Chocolate Manufacturers, and more. Additional jobs with this company included informational DVD's on sexual harassment, sales training, medical procedures, and hair styling methods. Chances are if you were learning a company's protocols in the late 90's and early 2000's, you were hearing my voice. During the dot com years, I was in one to two voice over sessions per week. Those were very good times. Currently, I appear on television as an expert in my field (body language and hypnotherapy) alongside Dr. Drew. My voice has also been heard on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Access Hollywood, Good Day LA, NBC, Lifetime, TLC, MTV, VH1, Style Network, and HGTV. I am also the voice for the last two DVD hairstyling systems for Paul Mitchell and Paul Mitchell the School.

My Training

I am a graduate of Florida State University (BFA in Musical Theatre) and certified as a Master Hypnotherapist by the Behavior Science Center and Hypnosis Motivation Institute (HMI). I have performed all over the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America as a singer and spokesperson. I have appeared on dozens of television shows, radio programs, and am a frequent keynote speaker for companies and non-profit organizations across the United States.

My Studio Equipment

Microphone: Blue Snowball with Pop Filter Screen
Studio: Dedicated 6 feet by 7 feet sound-proofed space

Additional Skills

The thing that is of greatest benefit to me is my training as a Master Hypnotherapist. So much of what we say, how we communicate, can influence others in powerfully positive and influential ways. My ten years as a practicing hypnotherapist, both with private clients and in the media, have been extremely valuable in teaching me to use all aspects of my voice --- the volume, speed, rhythm, and pitch --- to create a desired outcome in the listener. For years, I have been making recordings for my clients to use in their continued work for modifying their behavior patterns. I use my extensive knowledge in this area in all of my voice over work. The result is in the finished product.
