Additional Skills

I am an award-winning actor and published writer. I believe my eclectic background in theatre, business/technology, writing and psychology along with my professional experience specifically as a voice-over talent give me a unique edge in the voice-over industry.

(Cue James Lipton and the Actor's Studio Interview Here) :)

On Being an Actor: I understand that it takes an acting background to make a voice-over artist effective - there are hundreds of different ways to deliver a single word on a single piece of copy and good actor serves as the emotional conduit between the text and your audience. (Got Milk?)

Oh, and I once received the Bay Guardian award for Best Performance with co-nominee Olympia Dukakis.

On Business and Technology: I am fortunate to have worked for a top-tier management consulting firm in project management and training/development for 13 years, so I understand business and business terminology and can effectively deliver your message to potential clients and colleagues.

On Writing: I have been a featured writer and contributor to Salon.com. Also published by Washington Post. Published and produced playwright. Have written and voiced series of "Upward Feedback Lady" videos for an international consulting firm, so understand development of scripts and content.

On Being a Nice Person: My professional references will qualify me as fun, professional, easy to work with, and down-to-earth. Not a Diva!

Additionally: I am a mother and a Burner (regular Burning Man attendee). This diversity of experience allows me to talk to and engage a wide range of people!

Thanks very much for taking the time to read my profile. I hope my voice and my experience make a good fit for your next project.

Cheers!
