My Voice Experience

I've been performing voice-overs since I was 10 years old, sitting alone in my room with a tape recorder creating entire shows centered around a precocious little girl named Gwendolyn Bradley.

Since then, my work has involved recording spots for a wide range of organizations -- from multi-media art installations to Fleischmann's Yeast commercial.

I'm often given medical voice-over work because I can pronounce complex scientific terms with general ease!

I also helped develop the first female-based interactive sitcom, "Supple," for which I created the characters, wrote the dialogue, played two of the roles, and directed the voice-over sessions. [http://supplegame.com]

I'm best known for my warm yet professional voice, although I bring to the project whatever is needed.
