My Voice Experience

I have been acting, singing, and speaking ever since I was born. I had my first theatrical role in kindergarten (I was one of the munchkins in "The Wizard of Oz"). After that, it was over. I got one taste of the stage and I never wanted to go back to being in the audience. If I wasn't acting, I was in spelling bees. (I almost made it to the national spelling bee in 8th grade. I lost on the word "rorqual"...or is it "rorquel"? I still don't know...) If I wasn't learning how to spell and enunciate, then I was speaking at an event or lectoring at my church. By the time high school rolled around, I continued to act in the school plays (in 9th grade I won the role of Mr. DePinna, a crazy old man, in "You Can't Take it With You." Luckily, I escaped having to wear a bald cap for that role.) I also sang in the musicals and competed with my chorus and female vocal group in different competitions. After high school, I went off to college, attending SUNY New Paltz in NY. I majored in theatre for a little while, where I learned about improv and performance skills, as well as how to breathe and speak onstage. My first voiceover role came in 2005 when I voiced Dr. Seuss's "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" for "Fresh Dance," an annual dance program that features a variety of dance performances. In 2005, I switched to a major in communication and media. I learned about everything from advertising, to media law, to the history of broadcasting. It wasn't until my final semester, however, when I took a class on TV and radio broadcasting that I caught a glimpse into a world that I realized I wanted to be a part of. After graduating in 2007 with my BA in Communication and Media, I attended a voiceover workshop at Southampton College where I found out that I had a very marketable voice and could be described as the "girl next door." Shortly thereafter, I attended the Connecticut School of Broadcasting where I fell in love with all things broadcasting. My desire to share my voice with the world was reaffirmed. There, I gained experience producing, recording, and editing a variety of commercials and narrations. My first job after school was as a fill-in traffic reporter for News 12 Traffic and Weather (a 24-hour station solely devoted to traffic and weather where the reporters voice all reports and only maps are shown). After moving to FL for a brief period of time and gaining some news-writing/voiceover experience as an intern at an AM radio news station in South Florida, I moved back to Long Island where I found a job at HOPE Radio (Long Island's Christian radio station) hosting The Afternoon Drive on weekday afternoons. I produced programming for both The Morning Drive and The Afternoon Drive and also voiced advertisements for the station. I am currently making the move to Denver, CO where I hope to pursue all of my broadcasting and voiceover goals, all while trying to make it as a CrossFit competitor on the side. (Hey, you can't just have a strong voice.)
