My Voice Experience
After a few years with Voice 123, I feel confident recording anything sent to me--as long as it is appropriate for my voice. I have taken seminars on audiobooks and animation. I keep working at my craft with weekly professional classes in Los Angeles. I have done public speaking all my life. As a musician, I ran many workshops; lectured, and both taught and performed. I love reading out loud, and do so weekly for school kids through the SAG BookPals program. I was a children's docent for 6 years at The Southwest Museum in Los Angeles. Now, as an actor on stage and in TV and film, I have even more opportunities to speak---in many different ways.
A professional VO talent in Los Angeles chose me for a radio spot a few years ago, which was the start of my voiceover career. This mentor, teacher and friend says I have "the perfect older woman voice" but am also "completely against style." He's responsible for some of my demo reels and for setting me up with home recording equipment.
i now have a VO agent, and I've booked several projects for Voice123. For instance, one was a TV spot for a children's advocacy program; the most recent for a colleges' fund raiser award dinner honoring a donor.
BA cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, Pomona College

Long professional music career, both US and abroad: Europe, Canada, Mexico, Australia and New Zealand, performing and teaching.
Created and ran week long early music workshop for 16 years.

Public speaker. Museum docent. Grade school reader.
Published humorist and musician.
As an actor, I have credits in TV, film, and stage. I have taken--and am continuing with--countless casting director workshops, seminars, acting classes, commercial and scene study classes.
My Studio Equipment
Pro Tools LE-7 software
AT2020 cardioid condenser microphone
All used with my MAC OS X laptop.
I am fully grounded in the arts. I enjoy story telling, teaching, and public speaking. I am an excellent writer, and I can whip off a humorous sonnet with no trouble! I draw. I've written several monologues and a one-act play.
I'm an unusual woman in that, at an age where many are considering retiring, I have plunged boldly into a new and challenging career. I gave up music in order to "follow my bliss" and pursue a lifetime dream of acting. I now dedicate myself 100% to what I do. I am stubborn, fearless, hard working, and totally committed.
I'm a mother and grandmother. I've worked a lot with children, as teacher and docent. I'm gregarious, and love meeting people. I think of myself as a combination of traditional and non-traditional. I'm a great cook, a fine decorator, a vigorous and health conscious exerciser. As an older woman, I can also sound contemporary and "hip" when necessary.
I'm a hard and tireless worker, and a dedicated actor.
