My Voice Experience

After graduating from college with a degree in Electronic Media I began working in a recording studio and soon came face to mic with the wonderful world of voice overs!

I started doing voice overs for Video Games and Commercials and have since expanded into Audio books, Promos, Internet Radio, Trainings, IVR, and Self Guided Tours.

Turns out all those years of drama classes and writing books have paid off after all!
