My Voice Experience

I began working in Voice Over approximately three years ago and have been working consistently ever since.

Notable clients include Nickelodeon (Dora in the City), Nintendo, Nestle, NUK, Intel, St. Baldrick's, Channel One, and many more.

I have been performing characters since I was a kid, before the word "Voice- Over" ever entered my vocabulary. I'm hardworking, precise, and I guarantee top quality audio and performance with a fast turn-around.


Lori is great to work with! She takes direction very well, and is able to quickly arrive at the correct voice for any project. She is responsive and punctual, and I look forward to working with her on more projects. - Josh Miles, Killer Infographics

We have hired Lori for several TV spots, and she consistantly provides outstanding work. She is on our short list for VO talent and shall remain there. -Stephen Massari, Advanced Video Productions
