Voice Description

I've been acting professionally for 15 years! I love a challenge and, as many talented directors will tell you, I take direction very well. It's all about delivering the sound you want!!

I have a knack for making any copy sound conversational and real!

I can give you quirky, fun, upbeat commercial voices. The loving, exasperated mom. The serious college student. The silly, ditzy, perky sorority sister. The obnoxious, nosy neighbor. The wry, sarcastic best friend. The happy, smiling girl next door!

For professional and corporate work, I can give you a warm, smooth, professional read. I am excellent with caring, compassionate reads. I am very at ease and adept with techno babble, medical jargon and "legal-ease"

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Southern: From brassy, vulgar trailer trash to saucy southern belle!

British: Standard British on demand. With a little rehearsal I can deliver regional accents such as Cockney.

Irish: From cheeky, sassy barmaid, to lady of the manor!

Language: Spanish. While I am not a fluent speaker, I can easily deliver the dialogue needed for most on hold and automated operator projects. I've lived in sunny California most of my life, you don't do that with out picking up the basics! For more involved dialogues, I've enough Spanish classes under my belt to deliver realistic copy with a little more rehearsal.

My goal is to deliver the sound you want. i am always open to feedback and direction!

My Voice Experience

I am an onscreen actor with 7 independent films under my belt. Including a recent project for Lions Gate Films. My acting coach kept insisting that she loved my voice and I *had* to get into voice overs. When I found out what a blast it was, I was hooked!

I've done theatre for years with roles ranging from Agatha Christie adaptations to a comic book widow in Sex Lives of Superheroes! Let me tell you about the inflatable Spiderman and Wonder Woman sometime!

My Training

I have a B.A. in theatre arts, with an emphasis on acting, from The University of California, San Diego. I have been active in theatre and singing since I was a child. Of course, along with these activities came the requisite classes in singing, voice and diction.

Since moving to the Bay Area, I have begun studying at Voice One with Elaine Clark
