I am innovative and creative voice over artist. I love doing this work and helping you get the right take. I am a successful working voice over talent, actor and improvisor. I have been in Chicago 5 years. I have done work for Oscar Mayer's Good Mood Mission Campaign (Bridges Media); Industrial Narration for Phillips (Cognitive Arts), Allstate (Cognitive Arts), AON (Bridges Media), Plum Productions, Pathfinders (See3); Radio spots for Conn's Labor Day Sale in Texas (Sound & Fury); Dobbs Tires in St. Louis Area (The Arbor Group); and On-Camera Commercials for Nature Valley Granola Bars, Central Bank of Kentucky, State Fair Corn Dogs, Dobbs Tires, North Kansas City Hospitals, Chicago Blackhawks, and Lexus of Highland Park; Training Narration for Course Avenue, KnowledgeShift, St. Charles Group, and Grant Thornton.

My Studio Equipment
I use protools or audacity to record and edit - depends on what I need to do.
I have a MBox mini that I use for converting analog mics signal to digital - I have a Shure SM58 and a KSM 32
For direct USB - I have a Rode Podcaster mic
I have an extremely positive can do spirit - I will try something rather than not.
As you can see, I am a repeat performer for many of my clients, of which I am honored. I believe it is as much about getting the right take for you as building a relationship where we can continue to work together for a long time.
My background is quite varied from Party and Event design when I first graduated college to IT Support and IT Project Management to writing and building eLearning courses. I think my background allows me to understand a lot of different business and commercial experiences and I am richer for it.
And, I can improvise a song... in fact musical improvisation is probably one of my most favorite things to do.
