Additional Skills

I'm a full-time voice actor and a former TV publicist and writer. At NBC and Nickelodeon, I honed communication and persuasion skills to help propel programs from "Cheers" to "Rugrats" to hit status. Not only are these skills valuable in interpreting and connecting with voiceover copy, I trained with top VO coaches in L.A. in the last decade and with excellent acting teachers back in college (University of Michigan). Currently I voice a wide array of radio and TV commercials, eLearning projects and web videos and appear on various production companies' rosters. I'm also an avid tap dancer.
