My Voice Experience

I love what I do. I've been a voiceover actor for 5 years now. During this time I've been a pregnant mom raving about her hospital, a narrator explaining how Knor dominated the marketing field, a pig-tailed pink cartoon character who's thrilled to teach kids how to save their money, Marilyn Monroe and the current voice for American Express's internal news emails.

My experience so far encapsulates radio commercials, video narration, presentations and an animated TV series. Work has appeared regionally within US as well as globally.

My Training

I have a Bachelor of Arts in writing and public relations. I first discovered my love of recording when I did an internship for a local radio station. I was hired as a promotions intern. When I was done finishing up all my brunt work activities, I would sneak out into the recording studio and pick the sound engineer's brain. This sound engineer, who is now one of my good friends, taught me everything- from pre to post production. One of the on-air personalities, randomly came up to me and complimented my voice one day and asked if I'd record a tag for one of the commercials. I jumped at the opportunity! For the remainder of my internship I was recorded for various tags and developed a serious love for radio and being in the studio. Fall semester, I decided to start up my own radio show with my best friend for our school's station. We created a variety show called "Day Break," which we continued even as alumni until life hit and our work schedules no longer allowed the room for us to continue. We put our blood, sweat (literally because we had no air conditioning at the time in the studio) and tears into it and had a blast. We had the pleasure of interviewing a lot of bands and musicians along the way.

I first discovered the true world of voiceovers when I did an internship for the audiobook department for Penguin publishing house in NYC. My initial internship responsibilities had nothing to do with voiceovers. I was there primarily for editorial work and of course, the usual brunt work that comes along with internships. One day as I was organizing some files, my boss, the executive producer for Penguin, said, "Jess, you have a really nice voice. Want to go to the Actor's Equity Building and record the preview demo for our Fall Line of Audiobooks?" I was out the door!

Flash forward to post-graduation, the "real world." I began to notice a pattern with people noticing and complimenting my voice. I was at a corporate job that I hated, which now in hindsight I'm so thankful for, because it put that fire in my belly to collect my little commercial tags I did to create a demo. Without hesitation I sent it out to NYC studios. Next thing I know I'm receiving interest from a few big studios, and I ended up choosing one. I've been signed to that studio ever since and really savoring the ride. I relied on natural instinct and was able to book projects with major names like Amex and Bacardi.

Desiring some skilled training, I sought out VO acting lessons with a veteran movie and VO actress. Through that I've expanded my repertoire and am seeking to rise to the next level in my VO career.
