Hi, I'm Shira, the girl next door, all grown up - someone you know, someone you trust, because I'm just like you.
I am an honest, authentic female voice over artist, host, spokesperson and commercial actor who will exceed your expectations, bringing your projects to life with unparalleled results.
My voice is accessible, sincere and inviting. I have the versatility and range that comes from my one-of-a-kind background -- 20+ years of performing, hosting, and facilitating live events.
An authentic personality, I am the quintessential attractive shopper mom; equally resonant and perfect for national and regional commercials; explainer videos, corporate narrations, audiobooks and on-hold messaging.
I am also just right for sexy and sultry luxury items, health and beauty, fragrance and romance. And if you're looking for someone to deliver just the right balance of authoritative, controlled, intelligent and personable, you've found her!
My naturally ebullient, engaging personality and lightening quick ability to take direction, make me effortless to work with and a sought after artist worthy of your attention and consideration.
"Shira is a powerful communicator who speaks from the heart and connects with her soul, engaging consumers with her warmth, integrity and transparency."

Once upon a time, in a far off land called Malibu, there was a toy manufacturer who created the Hanukah Harry doll. This jolly cousin of St. Nick's was given the gift of song - by layering my voice into a sublime chorus. I haven't seen Harry in years, but I suspect he is still out there somewhere, bopping along, bringing joy to the multitudes of children who are happily hugging their beloved friend. And since then, when it comes to my personal VO style, I have earned the title of "everybody's best friend". I am grateful for where it all started . . . using my voice to bring hope, health and happiness. And it's continued from there . . .
Whether as the knowledgeable and engaging Voice of God for the prestigious NY Women in Communications Matrix Awards, the soothing, articulate and empathetic voice for a cancer website medical dictionary pronunciation guide; as the relaxing, gentle and hypnotic guide for the Diva Mama Aromatherapy meditation series; to the personable and trusted executive, overworked mom or energetic millennial, I do it all.
I run the gamut from super sweet, virtuous and inspiring to accessible, resonant, grounded and downright passionate. I'm authentic, honest, transparent, personable, warm, soothing and gentle. And that's all before lunch!
But really, what makes me really unique is that I have so much experience talking to, nurturing and caring for other people, sharing moments of sheer joy (weddings, baby namings, bar mitzvahs) and supporting them through deep sorry (last rites, funerals, unveilings). I understand the way people think, the endless capacity of the human heart, the indomitable spirit & I know how to connect . . .I mean, REALLY connect.
And even with all those amazingly unique skills, I am also just like every other busy mom! I'm a very busy female entrepreneur and mother . . . or as I prefer, a "mompreneur". So, I understand the significance of communication and branding as it relates to the most powerful household buying decision makers - MOMS!
This is why I love the nickname of being an "attractive shopper mom - everybody's best friend".
That's me and I hope you think I am the one for your voice over job, because I am here and ready!

With the added background of my MFA in voice, I am also a writer, speaker, host and facilitator of live events, so I understand both sides of your project. Equally important to the written copy is how it lands emotionally with your target audience. How do you bridge that gap? With a voice that has heart, soul and life experience behind it. These are the qualities that make your message truly resonant and authentic, and this is where I excel.
