Funny, Feminine Tom Boy, Upbeat, Animated, Warm
If you want to add believable personality to your commercials and narratives, I'm the girl for you! I have a unique sounding voice and can do a wide range of acting for narrations, specializing in upbeat, intense, and mysterious. I've had plenty of practice with timing doing stand up comedy and am perfect for adding a feminine touch to generally male topics like sports. Having been a Chef my whole life, I'm great for any cooking/baking, nutrition, or food related projects.

My Voice Experience
Nearly a decade ago I recorded my first voice over job- a 30 second introduction for a band called The Dirty Angels that they played before every live show. There was lots of reverb and thunder crashes. Since then, through training and coaching, I have been honing my skills.
One of my biggest strengths is voicing for explainer and training videos. Clients find that my personable reads connect to people in a friendly way that effectively keeps listeners engaged. I have done such videos for clients like Intuit (Turbo Tax), FedEx, and big box stores.
I also do well with call-to-action pieces. Many of my clients are non-profits that attempt to summon empathy, and therefore contribute to their cause.
Other on-going clients that I record for include museum narration (across the U.S.) and hypo-therapy sessions.
Eighteen months private voice coaching, extensive music lessons, music and video editing courses. Freelance writing (educated in AP Stylebook) for newspapers with a focus on entertainment, music reviews and human interest articles.
My Studio Equipment
Audio Technica AT2020 Side Address Cardioid Condenser Studio Microphone, Tascam US-1800 Audio/Midi Interface, MacBook Pro, V-MODA Crossfade LP headphones
I'm great with culinary terms, as I was a Chef for 20 years. I have a complete studio that I work from daily, so a quick turn around time is always feasible.
