My Voice Experience

I have been a performer ever since I ushered all my cousins into the living room to see a show I created.
Since then I have acted professionally for over 20 years. I love scripts where I can determine a character and tell a story. -- I love acting; and voice work allows me to play numerous characters a week. It's like repertory theatre!

Quotes from clients:
"It was great working with you. You were amazing at getting into character and you really brought it to life for us! It's always good to work with a professional who understands how to be the character rather than just read a script :)."
-Brad Bower with S2 Games. (I played an "Evil Ladybug Pestilence" for a video game!)

"Thanks for the speedy and great job!"
-Filipp Logvinenko, Studio ForteFill
(I played "Mother", "Felicia the Villianess" and "Woman Ghost" for the video game "PuppetShow: Lost Town" on BigFish Games)

"You and David are adorable!...Pleasure to work with you two!" Ralph Suarez, Creative Director NAC Marketing (My husband David and I did a radio commercial for Beta Prostate)
