My Voice Experience

Working as a Storyteller since 1998, I have a repertoire that includes Nag the Cobra (from Riki Tiki Tavi) Anazi the Spider, The Big Bad Wolf, Bear and chipmunk (from an Iroquois creation myth.) Versatile, I have the ability to be raspy one minute and sweet the next. I am a member of NOLA Playback Theatre, a New Orleans-based improv company. Also a singer, I am a contralto and currently a member of the New Orleans-based Lloyd Daly and the Vince Michael Band. In Louisiana, I am employed as the Assistant Theatre Producer at the Ashé Cultural Arts Center.
