My Voice Experience
I am a model and actress. As my acting career started to take off in the form of TV Commercials and Corporate type videos, clients started to ask if I could do the VO for the projects as well. VO work was a natural step to take in my career. It has also shown me that you can definitely "hear" a smile in your voice. It is a total package.
I have performed VO work for TV commercials such as, ConnectTV, Brown Derby Restaurant, Kronheims Furniture, and Faith Family Church just to name a few.
I also do on camera and VO work as a "fashion expert" on the Kay Jewelers YouTube Channel. I have performed corporate video on camera, and VO work for Patriot Software, Qualchem, and Nature Stone Flooring.
I have a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in broadcast media. I have worked in media/TV production as an editor, camera operator, and writer. I have learned my VO experience mostly as an extension of my on camera acting experience. Reading multiple children's books to my son and daughter every night keeps me pretty sharp as well. ;)
My Studio Equipment
I have access to a recording studio. My husband is a musician and along with his two brothers, they record their music in my brother-in-law's in home studio. They have extensive knowledge of microphones, acoustics, recording and sending capabilities.
I have lots of teleprompter experience which has helped me read a script in a natural way.
A former position that I held as Community Relations Specialist for ITT Technical Institute required me to visit High School Classrooms to perform a memorized presentation with interactive games and power point. I spoke to the students about the importance of technology and how it would fit into what they wanted to pursue.
