I bring words to life.

Just ask my kids, when I'm reading them stories, creating unique voices for each character. Or my e-learning clients, who know me as the friendly, knowledgeable, yet relatable advisor guiding them through their next training endeavor. Telephony and IVR folks hear my professional yet warm voice greeting them on the other end of the phone. And if you're checking out the latest and greatest new product or service in an explainer video, my conversational and approachable style makes you feel like you're talking to a friend.

I like to think of my clients and I as partners, working together to create the perfect project with just the right tone and nuance. And because I always want you to love the finished product, I believe in exceeding your expectations.

Additional Skills

As a photojournalist one of the best skills I learned is adaptability. In the world of news things can change in a heartbeat, and you have to be able to change and work with that, and still produce exceptional material.

While some events are unpredictable and require that adaptability, there are also certain events that you cover year after year when working for a news outlet, and you have to be willing to approach those events with fresh eyes each time.

These two skills lend themselves very well to VO work, because you need to be adaptable to each situation and each client and their particular needs, but you also need to be able to provide a fresh perspective and breathe life into each script to really draw listeners in.

I pride myself on being a consummate professional who provides quality work. I'm very easy to get along with and take direction easily. My goal is to make sure the client is thrilled with the final product.
