My voice is versatile, and my general speaking tone which would be utilized for most voice over work, is extremely clear and articulated, with the sound of a young to mature female voice. My voice is very calm with a soothing timbre and rich tone. Varying emphasis and emotion come naturally to me and I am able to color any script the way that it should be. I have an expansive vocabulary and an extensive career as a LIVE performing vocalist, ordained minister for weddings and emcee for special events so that I am able to cover a wide range of scripts effortlessly. I studied some acting in high school and college and performed in various dramas, spoken word and operas.
My voice is very smoothe and professional and is ideal for commercial and narrative voice over including radio, television, VOIP, software, videogames and auto voice programs, corporate training courses, podcasts, narration, books on tape, instructional voice over, etc. I can also effectively use intonation to create moods, or character effects that may be used for animations or television.

I am a full time professional singer and perform at about 20-30 shows per month. I am also an ordained wedding minister and emcee for many of these events. I was an opera performance major in college where I was required to study multiple languages including German, French, Spanish and Italian as well as diction for all those languages. I have been interviewed on several radio stations and podcasts as well as acting out various roles on comical podcasts. I have taken some voice over courses and I have been hired or volunteered for various vo projects for local media companies, company VOIP systems and student projects. I am now embarking on making this a more substantial part of my career.
I took many theater and voice training courses throughout my youth and into my college years.
I was a vocal performance major at Chapman University from '99 through '01.
I studied German, Spanish, French, Italian & Latin, and took a Singers Diction & Dialect Course. (Fluent Only In English)
I also studied some digital music composition with effective manipulation of the software called Cubase.

Depending on the size of the project I can turn it around usually within 24-72 hours.
I have my own recording studio in my home that is fully paneled and enclosed for perfect sound. I will record and deliver files in a very timely and professional manner and I am also open to any feedback from clients if they want me to change a certain emphasis or re-record the audio if needed. I am eager to learn and to do what it takes to satisfy the client and their ultimate goal of receiving a high quality recording with a professional voice that conveys their message. For jobs paying over $1000 I am willing to go as far as Los Angeles to San Diego to record in studio if necessary.
