Additional Skills

My varied background has contributed to my approach in voice acting.

PERFORMING ARTS: I believe in continual training on-camera, in voice-over and on stage!

EDUCATION: as a Conversational English Teacher in Japan as in CA, I know how to encourage and nurture while instructing.

AUTOMOTIVE: I was a a product specialist/presenter for over 6 years; I represented the Automotive client's media information AND helped auto show patrons understand the vehicle specs as well as helped obtain their information for future marketing campaigns.

SALES/MARKETING: I understand the importance of demographics, and I know firsthand how important connecting to a new potential client is, and that training and believing in one's product is vital.

Since I have this insight and experience, I am able to effectively represent my client's product in ways that are sincere and believable. The biggest compliments I receive are that many clients continue to hire me!
