My voice has a classic quality of feminine warmth and wit delivered with a rich tone like Allison Janney. Some call it "like Butter." It has all the resonance and charm of a southern accent without the drawl (which, of course, can be added if desired). It can be sultry and sexy, refreshing and fun but always pleasing for commercials; intelligent, smooth, and authoritative for presentations or newscasts; melodic, emotional, and captivating for narrations.

My Voice Experience
My first voice over was ADR for a producer/friend of mine who needed to fill in the opening scene of her film. As a former executive overseeing ADR sessions for Miramax Films, I loved watching the creative skill it took to get just the right take, not to mention how much fun it was. Several years later, I met a creative executive for Chiat Day who asked me to a studio session to record a Toyota commercial. I began to take classes and train in voiceover.
