My Voice Experience

I am known as "One Take Donna" to many of my long-term clients. I have been performing television and radio commercial copy for more than 15 years. Long-term clients include department stores, car dealerships and corporate giants. I also specialize in Industrial Narration, with extensive experience in traditionally difficult language involving medical, oil-industry and financial industry terminology. I am also a
former radio and television Reporter and News Anchor as well as Talk Show Host so creating that kind of feel is a natural ability.

My Training

BA, University of Houston Communications: Radio/TV/Film
Former TV News Anchor and Radio Reporter
Former TV Show Host
Trained as an actor in commercial, television and film both in Houston, Texas and in Los Angeles, California.

My Studio Equipment

I use Pro Tools M-Powered 7 on a PC with an MXL V63M Condensor Mike. I send Voice Track by e-mail.
For longer narration projects, I have easy access to a fully equipped studio that has all bells and whistles. $125 an hour for the studio, minimum 1 hour, including recording and editing time.

Additional Skills

I have worked in the voiceover industry for more than 20 years. First as a radio reporter for the #1 all news radio station in the country. I then moved on to television news as a Reporter, then News Anchor for an NBC affiliate in a smaller market. Moving back to Houston, I hosted a 2 hour daily LIVE TV show, featuring book authors, chefs, actors, musicians and other people of interest. I have worked steadily in commercials, both on-camera and as the voice talent. I also work steadily in industrial voiceover and continue to take classes with notable coaches and directors in the Entertainment Industry in Los Angeles, California.
