Voice Description

For Commercials my range is flexible and directible. I was know in the Portland/Seattle market as the "whatever voice you need" voice. I can deliver a high intensity sell, a sexy playful tease, a rich and knowledgeable voice of persuasion, and a wide variety of characters and accents.

In Education/Announcer/Narration I speak with a real, melodic, non-accented American voice that's rich, warm, friendly, down to earth, and inviting. One client described it as "sincere clarity."

In Corporate and Professional Presentations I have well tuned vocal skills based on having had the opportunity to deliver live interactive training to over 40 major businesses and corporations. I know how to keep them listening.

In Audio Books and Animation I present an arsenal of Character Voices with wide range and can maintain a consistent, long term voicing.

Having worked professionally as an actor for over 30 years, I blend emotional reality with changes in vocal pitch, intonation, or intensity.

My voice has been termed honest, friendly, edgy, persuasive, passionate, heartwarming, and "hot."

My Training

My success in the Voiceover Industry is based on my extensive work in associated artistic endeavors that were easily and comfortably transfered to the specialized needs of radio work. It was a natural and uncomplicated transition. There is also specific training in voiceover as well.

I have a BA degree from SUNY Binghamton with two years Post Graduate studies. During this time I was personal assistant to Arthur Lessac, author of "The Use and Training of the Human Voice." My Post Graduate work culminated in Co-developing "Body Wisdom: The Use and Training of the Human Body" with Arthur Lessac.

I was a founding member of Colonnades Theater Lab in NYC, an Off Broadway Repertory Theater. I both acted in and trained the company.

I have taught Voice, Speech, Acting, and Movement for both the stage and film/television at over 40 Colleges, Universities, and Professional Organization/Institutions. My most recent professorship was at Middlebury College in 2006 and 2008.

I participated in a weekly developmental voice workshop, over the course of a year (1996), with Rex Recording and the top six voice talents of the Northwest where we work on creating new and interesting vocal challenges, created spec copy for in house projects, and assisted each other in the continued development of our vocal range and application.

I currently work as a private coach in all areas of the communication arts. I work with corporate professionals, personal self expression, and actors. I am known in LA by a number of agents and managers as their "secret weapon." I am the individual who will be brought into a circumstance when the performer is stuck, frustrated, and losing confidence. I have a 100% success rate with the individuals I work with.

I have been an on set coach to both Television and Film. I work with the actors who "freeze up" and are unable to fulfill the directors needs.

I have worked in the corporate sector, delivering training in "Successful Interview Techniques", "Vocal Clarity and Emotional Reality", and "Personal & Interpersonal Communication Skill Building."

My eclectic background brings a unique and qualitative expressiveness to my work.

I have developed ads, copy, and corporate name identity.
