My Voice Experience

For 12 years, I hosted a daily music show at WUMB-FM in Boston. My voice is familiar to audiences of Boston's flagship NPR and PBS stations, WGBH-FM and WGBH2-TV. Travelers at Boston's Logan Airport heard my voice touting an expanded international schedule. Museum exhibits, high tech company sales videos and fund-raising films use my voice talents. I've been a fast-talking math teacher, a crabby mother-in-law, a soothing nurse, a capable manager and a story-teller for clients as varied as AT&T Broadband, Comcast, John Hancock Insurance, Dunkin Donuts, Cengage, It's Learning, The Lexington Historical Society, and Perkins School for the Blind. And yes, I have a terrifying witch's cackle and a cuddly talking teddy bear in my arsenal, just to keep things fun. A seasoned pro at ease with direction, I get it done with minimum takes.
