My Voice Experience

Have been working extensively with my teacher and colleague, Jane Dashow. recently recorded the Voice over for a BBC announcer in a production of Anne Frank, and just finished ADR work for the feature film "Blue Caprice" under the direction of Alexandre Moors.

A big fan of character acting and playing with the voice. I always want to try multiple versions of a character to play with.
