My Voice Experience

Having been trained as a stage actor from early childhood, I have always relied on my voice and its versatility to create nuanced characters and deep multifaceted stories. I have portrayed a young southern disc jockey (Steel Magnolias), an extremely elderly British country reverend (See How They Run), and in the recent stage production of The 39 Steps played some twenty different characters, each with a distinct vocal style and dialect - from Standard British to Cockney to multiple distinct Scottish regional dialects.

My Training

BA - Theatre Arts from Siena College
Vocal/speech training throughout entire academic career.
