Articulate. Friendly. Believable. With technical know-how, fun professionalism, and an ability to take direction that has been complimented too many times to count!
You can reach me via Voices or direct email: email@example.com.
I will bring your copy to life: calm authority when the topic is serious; lots of smile and an engaging tone if you want your listeners charmed. I have an honest, conversational style that you instantly trust - as a mom, confidante, museum guide, or the girl next door.
But I can let my hair down, too - fun accents, kid-friendly cheer (without condescension), rapid-fire small print, or a rich, snarky, sarcastic edge to make a character shine!

I have been reading and recording since 1991, a full-time professional voice actor for more than three years, and have voiced everything from news to murder mysteries, commercials to children's books. I have a reputation for getting you what you want in a minimum of takes.
I have a bachelor's in physics and an M.S. in engineering - they come in handy when you need believable "smart." This also means I'm not intimidated by my equipment, and you'll hear that confidence in how I read your script.
