My Voice Experience
22 years of every type of read imaginable... (minus porn!) Warm engaging approachable national commercials, to highly technical medical reads and training audio...I have worked for small production houses and household name brands...I literally have done too many radio spots to even count...I have been working for some of the same producers for over a decade as they know they can count on me on every level. I have vast experience with extreme vesratility...as a result of my acting background, I can play a wide variety of characters/roles full of fun and emotion. From straight announcer to sultry, sexy vixen...I can deliver the most technical read, to the most warm and accessible, everyday female in a commercial. There is basically nothing I can't, or won't do. My timing is immpecable and I am known for my professional, friendly approach with directors, producers and clients alike. I narrate documentaries, audio books and have even been the voice of talking toys! Working in the number one market in the world and the voice of two of biggest radio stations in the country, I have a world class voice with a kind and friendly demeanor.
I have a BFA degree in Conservatory Theatre...and Voice Over training with various New York based teachers... but most importanly, 22 years of professional voice over experience. I am also a Radio Broadcaster for the past 15 years in the New York Metro area on the two biggest radio stations in the country: WLTW LITE FM and I currently have a weekly program on WABC Radio. I am Copy Writer for radio and other publications; I am a private voice over coach and demo creator for ten years; I was on faculty at The Connecticut School of Broadcasting for several years as a Voice Over Teacher and Radio Performance Teacher. I help various producer Cast their Voice Over Spots with new and experienced voice actors.
