Urgent yet soothing, expert communicator to W25-54

Voice Description

"Urgent yet soothing" is the description of a local ad agency, I have over twenty years experience informing and motivating 25-54 year old women via radio, cable and industrials. I write and voice to push the hot buttons of that all-important "power demo" woman, but in a safe, non-threatening way. I sound my age (late 40s) so I am more of an "equal" or friendly peer communicator, not so much brassy or "announcer-ish".

Sensitive, smiling, yet sincere voice of authority with excellent pronunciation and inflection instincts for spots as well as long form audio, such as safety and training videos - a more sensitive, less bossy carrier of the important information.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I've been a backwoods roughneck for a BBQ chain, a leprechaun for a St. Patty's Day "Pot O' Gold" Giveaway Contest, and my wasted youth with cartoons and Monty Python on telly has facilitated my cockney and aristocratic British accents. Aussie, Chinese-American, mobster, New York mook, left coast surfer and right coast preppie are others that come to mind.
I'm the product of a Brooklyn Jewish dad and an Irish Catholic mom (nuff said). My daughter asks me why I don't voice cartoons instead of boring ol' radio commercials.

My Voice Experience

Copywriting, production and voice talent as Production Director and afternoon drive AT for WJBR-FM, the #1 ranked (Arbitron, Fall 2009) AC radio station in market #76 (Wilmington, DE), we are overlaid by market #6 (Philadelphia, PA) - so we have to sound good as them!

I've voiced every kind of safety, training and product rollout video. I've voiced children's books as the narrator and as various characters. Voiced yoga videos, local cable TV ads and promos, and thousands of radio spots of every description from "sexy smoothie" to "crazed shouter". College and community acting experience actually brings new life to those cliche-ridden copy (not yours, of course) that begin with "Honey, I'm home!" I can do the "expected" take, and I can find the new spin.

Whether I write for my own voice or for directing others, I am adept at communicating well within 30- and 60-second time constraints, but love settling in, slowing down and breathing life into real organic Storytelling. When you give me time, you can hear it in my voice: "What a treat, the luxury of the long form."
