Voice Description

I am a very versatile voice actor.

I am a professional singer, actor, instructor and director.

I am the voice of 'Cherry Jubilee' for My Little Pony.

I do ADR Voice Casting & Direction for "The Background Loop Group" based out of Vancouver, BC.

I was the English speaking announcer at Whistler Medals Plaza in Whistler, British Columbia for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games and have voiced many different animated characters for both anime and pre-lay projects. I continue to voice projects for Urban Sound Brew (Vancouver, BC) Azur and Lemongrass Films as well as for video game giants EA Games, Hothead Games, UTV Ignition, Radical Entertainment and Klei Entertainment.

My voice is warm, friendly, inviting and easy to listen to.

I have excellent diction am clear and concise and easy to understand. I read copy easily and take direction well.

Narrative reads are one of my strengths. I am very good at getting important factual information across to the listener/viewer.

As a classical voice major in University, I studied and sang in several languages including German, French, Italian and Spanish. Reading and pronouncing foreign language words (names, places, historical data etc.) is one of my strengths.

I have a fun, wacky side as well. I can sound like a very young girl/boy but also have the versatility to sound like a mature and sexy woman.
