A HISTORY OF SATISFIED CUSTOMERS
Since beginning my voiceover career in 2010, I have developed a network of loyal clients. Customer service is my number one priority and I take pride in how my voice talents are used and how they represent me as a performer. As such, you can be confident that when you book me for a job, you will be booking a professional that will work with you to ensure that you have the perfect voiceover for your project.

AN EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL
Having worked with clients such as American Express, Genius Orbit, and UCI Irvine, as well as having been the voice for the five-part "Future Cities" web series for Skift/MasterCard, I am a full-time professional voice actor operating from a high quality home studio and I look forward to bringing both my experience and my passion for vocal performance to the table for you!

Currently, I am producing a series of twelve audiobooks for the popular Young Adult series "The Day Twelve Witches Burned" by Grace M. DeLeesie. Books One through Three are available on Audible.com for download and Book Four is in production, slated to be available in Fall 2018.

COMPELLING AND DYNAMIC VOCAL STYLE
I have a powerful, charismatic, and deep female voice with a generic American dialect. The naturally rich tone of my voice contributes to a sense of vocal gravitas, excellent for narration and audiobooks. My voice is commanding but also versatile, with a personal penchant for creating characters for video games and animations. I love to flex my natural sound into a variety of different characterizations from a ditzy millennial to an alien monster to Lady Bracknell, and everywhere in between.

Whether you are producing a commercial, a documentary, an audiobook, an independent video game, a corporate piece for use internally or with clients, or even your company's automated telephone attendant, I have the experience and versatility to bring that special something to your script and lift the words right off the page. Coming from a theatre background, I love storytelling and enjoy creative voice work, making bold choices and imbuing copy with humor, intelligence, and inner life. I am very direct-able and am always up for a challenge!

I have a true passion for vocal performance and love what I do. Working with me means working with an experienced and talented voiceover professional that cares about her craft and her clients.
