My Voice Experience

Previously, I have done narrative voiceover work for my audio project at Penn State (1985), for the STARS schools television grant at the NYC Public Schools (1992) and a promo for a New York City not-for-profit organization (geared towards high schools students 1993.

My Training

I have a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from Penn State University, but prior to that, I graduated from the Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts where I majored in Theatre and minored in music and dance. I am a musician (flute and saxaphone) and I also have been singing in various choirs since the age of five.

For almost ten years I ran a public performing and visual arts program for New York City's most comprehensive arts-in-education organization (ArtsConnection) where I also served as the host and warming up the audience for more than 200 events.

I have also been a motivational speaker and trainer for more than 15 years through my own company Success Seminars. Please visit my website www.danaharrislive.com

My Studio Equipment

I do not have a studio but I live near and work with the recording studio on the campus of Rutgers University.

I have training in audio and video production and post-production. I began training in audio production (and post-production) while I was a student and intern at PSU. I was responsible for creating the commercial carts for the local radio station and for the campus radio station (cutting and splicing tape). I later learned digital editing and while I do not edit as a profession, I know my way around the board.

Additional Skills

I feel that it is important for potential clients to know that I am a professional in every sense of the word. I take what I do seriously and I am very personable and easy to work with. I do not require too many takes to get the job done.

I think that my experience as a speaker, trainer, live host and stage performer makes me a very well-rounded voice-over artist.
