My Voice Experience

How I Got Started -
I began my voice over career as an experiment in 'building something to do when my day job ended' but it quickly blossomed into more than a hobby and side business. The more I explored the craft, the more intriguing it became and the more time I spent honing my craft and building the business. Every day I learn something new about this industry that makes me a reliable professional that you will never regret hiring.

My Background -
My years of experience working in large corporate businesses, Information Technology and Benefits Administration provide a bonus to any producer requiring a realistic interpretation as I am well versed in the vocabularies of these specialty areas.
