Mature, Friendly, Sweet, Sexy, Comical, Characters

Voice Description

If you need a versatile voice, that describes me. From a young twenty-something, sassy and sweet, to the friendly professional read for your corporate video or video sales letter, to the sultry reads for the more commercial work. If you need a mature voice for a documentary that understands timing for cinematography, can do that too. A voice for audio books, ebooks, children's stories, mobile apps. Maybe you want a professional warm inviting female voice for your IVR or business on hold, allow me to do that for you as well. Tell me the tone you hear and I will do my very best to match it.

My Voice Experience

Voice Overs started for me in the ways of radio commercials in 1998. By 2000, I had landed my first Voice Over job with a company producing radio and TV commercials. From there I put together a demo and started sending all over the US. The goal was to get my voice in the #1 market (NY) before I died. Let's face it, there's a TON of voices out there and New York is the market you want to be able to put on your resume. I started voicing everything I could get my hands, or voice on. Business on holds, IVR, mobile apps for education for smaller children, amazon books, eBooks, audio books, video sales letters, webinars, you name it! Finally the door opened for a project that was in New York, NY - for an auto dealer and I JUMPED! This was 3 years after I had established my own studio and scraped through taking every job that was feasible to try to get NY on the resume. Most of my work is for smaller companies but there are some stand outs like Burger King, Este Lauder, NoNo Hair removal, Cushie, Brush Buddies, ServPro, Honda and others.

Additional Skills

My biggest priority is you. Customer service and satisfaction. I know you can not please everyone, but it is my goal to at least try. At the end of the day, if after several attempts its still not what you imagined, I can always recommend one of my fellow artists that I work with daily to help you find the voice you want. My goal is to make sure you're happy with final product. There's no room for ego when it comes to making the client happy and I take great pride in being able to welcome constructive criticism and critiques because this helps me grow as a talent and be even better. I've been able to lend my voice in the news industry as a report and journalist, direct small community plays and projects working with actors and actresses on their dialects, singing to nail the sound on stage. I've also worked and do work with small children, directing them on delivery when they get a role in commercials for radio or TV.
