My Voice Experience

I have been a freelance VO artist in the San Diego, CA area for the last 12 years. I have done work for companies nationwide as well as locally. Some of my clients include IKEA Furniture, Mossy Nissan, Toy Smart, Avery Labels, Community National Banks, & New York City Credit Union. I am the voice of Providence Hospitals, Science Media, BPAA, Lathian Group, Forrester Medical and Magnify Medical Group, plus many more.

My partner, James R. Alburger, and I have a state of the art digital recording studio and we're both total perfectionists! Jim has over 35 years experience (and 11 Emmys) in sound production and design and he won't let anything out of here unless it meets his strict standards - that's a GOOD thing!

In addition to MP3,WAV or AIFF files, I provide recordings done in most any format, deliverable via our FTP site (or yours), or CD shipped to your location. Phone patch is available.

I'm quite versatile in my deliveries for commercials, narrations, voice over prompts/IVR, on hold messaging, voicemail recordings, medical narrations and character voice projects. I can draw from my years of experience of coaching others, writing copy and...yes...listening to lots of commercials!

My strongest deliveries are generally with slightly "wacky" (but lovable) characters, but I can also give you everyday characters who are either very smooth, or with an edge. My strongest talent shows in dialog spots - James and I are an awesome team.

James and I teach The Art of Voice Acting Workshop around the country and in San Diego. The Workshop is based upon his best-selling book, "The Art of Voice Acting".

I'll give you professional, quick turnaround and I'm fun and easy to work with.
