Voice Description

"I never answer questions like this, but there is just something about your voice that made me want to." I got that a lot when I worked as a telephone interviewer.
I can do old, middle-aged, funny, sad and Walter-Cronkite-serious-believable. I can go from "Eloise," the spoiled little girl who lives in a big hotel, to Ionesco's frustrated, but tireless "Old Woman". Speech and drama training gave me the discipline and intuitive skill necessary to be charming, professional, inviting, alluring, fun or goofy. People like to listen to my voice. I look forward to talking with you.

My Voice Experience

I have used my voice in many ways over the years, first as a student of drama and speech and in local theater productions and speech tournaments. I continued theater studies in college. My voice skills served me well as a contract negotiator for a union representing teachers in higher education. As an interviewer conducting public opinion and political surveys and polls on behalf of national news organizations and widely recognized polling firms, my voice training and skills were central to my success in that work. The proof is in the pudding. Listen to a demo and see what I have to offer your project.
