My Voice Experience

Victoria's Secret, Amtrak, and Nordstrom for Spotify, the tone of which were fun and energetic, engaging seasonal shoppers. Nuva Ring instructional video, providing clear and concise details, while avoiding the all-too-often-heard cold, clinical tone. Before that, came a web promo, in which I voiced an animated college-age daughter, who was able to reconnect with her dad through the use of technology. Prior to that, I provided a completely new prompt set for a home security company's Avatar telemarketing system. The job included close to 20 cues and I provided post-editing services as well. I'm an actress/singer/dancer by trade, with over 15 years of classical singing technique, although I started out singing R&B and Pop styles (learning from listening to Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, etc). My singing can be heard on the Original Cast Recordings of "Platypus the Musical" (2013 short film starring Jennifer Elise Cox and GLEE's Alex Newell) and "At the Toscars" (studio track of the Opening Number of the 7th Annual Toscars). Also, in 2010 I was hired as Quartet Soprano for Samuel French's online demo of the musical "A 1940's Radio Christmas Carol." Most of my training and experience is onstage, but like every girl born in the 80's, I've dreamed of voicing a Disney Princess for as long as I can remember! I began my commercial training in 2011 with private coaching in Chicago and within 3 months I completed my first commercial demo.

Post Grad: Commercial Voice Over Coaching (Jeff Lupetin, Chicago), On-Camera Acting Technique Workshop, (Matt Miller), Improv (Second City, Chicago).

Additional Skills

COPYWRITING: Extensive experience writing copy for website, email, and physical mailings. I worked for American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco for 3 years, during which I often produced copy that was distributed to tens-of-thousands of households at once. PERFORMING: I have strong improvisational skills (studied at Second City). I'm quick-witted, and love thinking outside of the box when it comes to creating comedic scenes and moments. As a result of all the singing training, I have great breath support and a ton of control over dynamics. I really enjoy molding phrases, and I strive to find musicality in every copy I read because I find that it adds interest and depth. My extensive experience acting onstage has resulted in a great comfort level speaking to crowds, and promoting products while providing entertainment.
