My Voice Experience

I've been using my voice for 46 years, at first to get attention, bottles, diaper changes etc. I've been an actor since the age of 12 and have mostly done character work. I've been told that I have a face for radio. I've honed my character voice skills in stand-up comedy and in improvisational theater.

My Training

Member/performer -STAR, Sunshine Theatre Arts in Review
Performing Arts Major - Florida State University
Host/Performer - Tokens, Tacoma's premier improv

My Studio Equipment

I have a teenage son/computer geek for technical assistance. Need I say more?

Additional Skills

I've worked in Retail and Food service Management for the past 20+ years. Primarily in a coaching and training capacity. The biggest compliment I usually recieved in the evals at the end of the class was the students appreciation for my voice. My tone and inflection kept their attention and I never came across as speaking down to them...unless I was. I also perform stand-up comedy and perform with an improv group as a performer and as the host/emcee
