comedy, upbeat, valley, characters, accents, edgy
Crystal has a very clear and fun sounding voice with great range, this allows for a pleasant soft sell for radio, tv commercials, as well as narration. Crystal's ability to interpret scripts and develop characters also allows her to do a variety roles, ages, and accents - anything from a young, upbeat, valley girl to a cockney grandmother or dopey thug.
She has a clear and smooth read for professional and educational voice-overs and sing song-y sexy fun for commercials and narration.
As a part time theatre instructor for children, Crystal is perfect for video games, cartoons, and anything out of the ordinary. She is a compassionate soul who can translate emotion easily and takes direction very well.

My Studio Equipment
I just got a new microphone, it's an AT2020 USB Cardoid Condenser Microphone..hooray I'm portable!
I just started using Audacity after my Audiopad expired and also can submit auditions through my i-phone apps.
Being in the studio makes me the happiest and I adore voiceover!!
I am a graduate from the Second City Conservatory Program in Toronto as well as from their Master's Class. I perform regularly throughout Toronto and am part of the Kate Ashby Academy's improv group Babeprov.
I teach my own visual arts programs called Me N' My Lil Monet where children (ages 2-3.5) come with their parents to make art. I also teach theatre arts and direct musical theatre shows with pre-school to grade 8.
I graduated with my HBFA in Visual Arts and my diploma in Arts Administration so paint and create in my other studio in my spare time.
