Mellow, smooth, relaxed, strong, warm

Voice Description

My voice has several variations depending upon the project. I have done presentations in a smooth and professional manner and warm and deep for narrations. I also do live theater and have often used sexy and fun voices within those productions. I have narrated 8 books that are available on Audible/Amazon. I have done several voiceovers in English for different projects while I lived in Germany. I did training and presentation tapes for computer applications, English language tapes and a promo for an animated movie proposal. I also did the English voice-over for a German documentary on Underground Boeblingen.

My Voice Experience

My first voiceover job came about as a result of a casting I had gone to for the film Buffalo Soldiers. My voice was kept on file by the studio and listed by the studio. Several different companies selected my voice for their projects for its tonality and the fact that it had the pronunciation precisin they wanted for their English language versions. Another I got when the man contacting me heard my voice on the answering machine. He said if that was my voice, it was the voice he wanted. I did voiceovers for computer training and presentations such as MY SAP. I also did English language tapes for a language school in Stuttgart and a movie promo for an animated film. I completed the English voice over for a German documentary on underground Boeblingen about the tunnels created as bomb shelters during WW II. I have narrated 8 books on Audible/Amazon.

My Training

I have a MS degree in Education Evaluation from USC and a BA in English and History from Va. Tech. I performed in four theater productions in college, three shows in Bedford, Virginia and over 50 productions in Stuttgart, Germany. My favorite roles have been Tevye (Fiddler on the Roof), Pseudelous (Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), Prof. Harry Higgins (My Fair Lady), Paul Bratter (Barefoot in the Park) and Bill Sykes (Oliver). I had small parts in two movies directed by Roland Emmerich and a small part in a German TV show, TATORT (The Dream from Luck). I just completed an English voiceover for a German documentary on underground Boeblingen. I have taken various workshops in acting and also studied singing for several years with John Outland.

My Studio Equipment

I have access to a studio in Naples, FL. that I used for the German documentary as I now live in the States. The charge is $150.00 an hour for my use of the studio. They are capable of most post production and delivery needs. I also have recording capabilities in my home and can do many projects there but have worked with the local studio when the project requires capabilites beyond my studio.

Additional Skills

I was a teacher for 31 years for the department of Defense Schools. The last eight years were spent teaching via Distance Learning and my students were spread all over the world. I created many activities and lectures using both video and audio presentations of my lessons. I have performed in over 65 live theater presentations, two movies and one German TV show. I did voice over work for several different companies while living in Germany.

Payment Methods Accepted
