My Voice Experience
I am a SAG-AFTRA stand-up comedian, actor, and voice-over artist.
I’ve been acting since I was 6 years old. Remember that Danny DeVito movie Matilda? I played Hortensia in that film when I was 11.
Of late, I’ve been exploring the world as a travel host and narrator for the series Islands Lost in Time. My favorite place that job has taken me is the Greek island of Hydra: it’s gorgeous... except for all the donkey dung. I was nominated for a Chicago Emmy for my hosting talents on this series.
To get a better idea of who I am, you can see my standup, watch my reel, and check out my commercial and narration demos on my website!
I’m an alumna of the improv training program at Upright Citizens Brigade (LA) and Second City and I’ve taken ongoing scene study classes at Lesly Kahn in Los Angeles.
I have a B.A. in English Literature and a Master's Degree in Modern Literature (so I can read AND understand voiceover copy!)
My Studio Equipment
I have a Samson C01U USB Studio Condenser, a Pop Filter, and a mic stand. I use Twisted Wave audio recording software to record my auditions.
I've been doing voiceover since I was 10 years old, and was even hired to sing on the world's first and perhaps only "Channukah Hip Hop Album"! I narrate the PBS series "Islands Lost in Time" and I regularly perform standup around Los Angeles.
