Voice Description

I have a warm, clear voice for standard narrations, and a deep breadth of character voices for children's recordings, animation etc. I have a straight-forward business approach to professional presentations and can be as goofy or as straight laced as required for other commercial projects.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Some of the stock characters that make "regular" appearances in my reading include the uptight, overstuffed intellectual with a slightly British accent, the "local rube" (Ay-yup...), bratty daughter/son, spoiled princess, spazzed out hedgehog, reticent/withdrawn wife/mother daughter, the charming, romantic "french" lover, the snarky, snide, evil doer, the foolish, bumbling newcomer, smart hero(ine), terrified victim, friendly Texan, clipped policy maker etc.

My Voice Experience

I have been a children's performer for over 13 years, specializing in bringing picture and chapter books to life through animated narrations, goofy characterizations, music, songs and movement. In my "grown-up" life, I have given lectures and conducted workshops on reading with children, reader's theater and children's literacy. Prior to my involvement with children's literacy, I was National Sales Director for an International Publishing Company (Inner Traditions International) and made frequent sales presentations all over the country and in the UK. I am comfortable with a wide range of texts and scripts - from elementary to technical.

My Training

I grew up in the Washington DC area and graduated from one of the local prep-schools (giving me a "neutral - educated" affect in my regular speaking voice). I graduated with a BS in Psychology from Vassar College. I have been involved in many high-school, college and post-college theatrical productions both as an actor and as a director. I have been singing (range:soprano to tenor) since I was in elementary school and continue to perform with local bands and for children every week. In addition, I am a graduate of the Such-A-Voice voice-talent training program.

My Studio Equipment

Digidesign 2x2 Pro Tools 8 LE System

Additional Skills

I offer quick turn around. I am competent and reliable and take direction well. I love books, history, politics and psychology. In addition to the skills listed above, I am co-chair of our school PTO (7+ years now) (which speaks to my organization skills and my persistence!) I have been a board-member of the Children's Literacy Foundation since it's inception 11 years ago and have been a reading mentor for Everybody Wins! for 5 years. I love to read out loud and I love to learn.
