Laid back, Sarcastic, Hip, Witty, Educated
My voice has been described by producers as "surprisingly educated and eloquent for such a laid back, hip chick." It's clean and clear with very little rasp... but sounds great when I whisper. Perhaps this will help:
Born in Newport Beach, CA, I was potty-trained in the back seat of my mom's Porsche, as it raced down the Pacific Coast Highway. My potty had a sensor in the bottom that played “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” if you made a direct hit. Thus began my life as an overachiever...
At age five, I moved to south Georgia with my family, where I managed to dodge the debutante balls but not the beauty pageants. When it came time for college, I dropped the hush puppies and cole slaw for the big city of Chicago... well, Evanston... where I studied acting at Northwestern University. My southern accent and nice manners were the subject of much mockery, so I dropped most of my accent but never my manners. I completed my theatre degree and made Chicago my home base for a while.
So if I sound like I'm from anywhere and everywhere in this good ol' US of A... it's because I am.

My Voice Experience
After several years of national tours and Equity theatre in the Midwest, I packed up and headed to LA. In early 2008, I booked my first feature film. For eight weeks I honed my British accent, rocked a dead baby, sang carols in Jim Carrey’s face, and threw invisible snow balls at unsuspecting children. All of this excitement was for “A Christmas Carol,” the motion capture remake directed by Robert Zemeckis for Disney. Further exploring my love of voice over and motion capture acting, I then played Gribble’s Mom and the Siss Guard Captain (yes, a captain in the martian army) for “Mars Needs Moms,” directed by Simon Wells for Disney. I now speak martian, as well as jive. And I would be ecstatic to continue embodying and voicing animated characters from this universe and beyond.
The motion capture and voice over work proved to be such a jolly good time that I buckled down and dove into more extensive training with Nancy Wolfson at Brain Tracks Audio. Nancy then produced my commercial demo. I have also worked for several years as a Product Specialist for Nissan, voicing product content on the auto show circuit. My voice has been used in live theatre productions and on several weekly radio programs to provide intros and outros, curtain speeches, and intermission announcements.
