Warm voice with a dry wit, accents, versatile characters
I suppose there's a good reason I was always cast as the Narrator in all the school plays when I was kid. My voice is naturally both gentle as well as professional, and I have only learned over the years to add varying emotions to those existing qualities.
My range of characterizations is also fairly wide, from age to dialects. I can do small children (boys or girls) and teenaged or adult women. Having studied dialects in college, my list is fairly long. I master new dialects quickly when needed.

My Voice Experience
Most recently, I have contributed to podcasts in the form of satirical commercials.
From March to September of 2006, I worked in the Characters department of Paramount's Kings Dominion, where I had the privilege of being one of the alternate hosts of the Meet the Nicktoons show that was performed at the end of each day. This required the ability to perform several energetic dances and announce each one just as energetically in between!
Most of my experience has come in the form of stage acting, though for a few of those plays I acted offstage into a microphone as "the disembodied voice." In high school I competed on the Forensics team for four years, taking part in just about every category there was. These days, my voice over experience comes in the form of doing little pet projects for friends. Most recently, a narrative for a still-in-the-works internet-based video that will (eventually) be the history of a fictional world.
Attended Virginia Commonwealth University for four years as a Theatre major with emphasis on Performance. During that time, I've taken many various voice and speech classes, varying from dialects to Shakespeare. I also attended an extended voice acting workshop led by Chip Bolcik.
My Studio Equipment
Audiotechnica condenser microphone
I also sing. I've played the flute for more than ten years, so I definitely know how to read music.
