Highlights

*ADD RUTHANN TO YOUR FAVORITES FOR YOUR NEXT PROJECT!*

RuthAnn, a Los Angeles voice talent, has a natural age range is 20-45 and she has a warm, charming, sincere voice. RuthAnn is accomplished at relaxed, conversational, believable soft sell attitudes such as friendly, calm, soothing, sentimental, caring, trustworthy regular girl next door and down to earth (like Zoe Deschanel). RuthAnn can do sultry, romantic, sexy, sensual and sophisticated or luxurious, rich, expensive and snooty (like Jennifer Hale). RuthAnn can also perform strong professional hard sell attitudes such as serious, newsy, authoritative, confident, energetic, enthusiastic and convincing. And is adept at the new edgy, youthful attitudes (like Jennifer Lawrence) such as argumentative, flippant, sarcastic, wry, bored, monotonous monotone, deadpan, casual and smartass.

RuthAnn can also do dramatic reads such as movie trailer, TV promo, audiobook or natural real person on the street testimonial reads. In addition to this RuthAnn has the cartoon versatility (like Melissa Disney or Tara Strong) of funny, ageless characters such as nerd, southern bell, Minnesotan mother, young child, valley girl, cockney street urchin, a monotone, cold and sarcastic A.I. (like Ellen McLain) and much more. RuthAnn is an excellent, directable voice actor and can interpret the emotional subtleties in copy and words and connect emotionally with the listener audience. When you request an emotion in RuthAnn's voice for a certain line she can produce that emotion and subtle variations of it. Some examples might be angry, happy, sad, disappointed, satisfied, relieved, concerned, worried, confused, surprised and more complex emotions such as exasperated, jealous, envious, dejected, hopeful, amazed and astounded and of course nonplussed.

RuthAnn is experienced in reading a variety of corporate industrial copy from dramatic and romantic to straight forward and instruction and she can phrase bullets and outline points well using her voice to clearly lead the listener through the logic of a presentation. RuthAnn can do a a variety of accents and dialects including Minnesotan, British R.P., Cockney, Irish, Scottish, U.S. Southern, New York, Brooklyn, New Jersey, etc. (just ask). RuthAnn can do these accents with different pitches and resonances and vocal quirks to create a wide variety of believable, entertaining characters with interesting personalities. RuthAnn can do a wide variety of character voices with age ranges from 3 to 103 with many resonances and speech quirks.

RuthAnn is a great choice for radio and tv commercials, promos, trailers, corporate industrial narration, documentaries, telephone IVR and on hold, animation and character voices, impressions and impersonations, audiobooks, training videos, internet and podcasts.

Experience

I have been a professional actress since 1999. I acted in over 5 main stage shows a year at a theater company until going to college in 2003 to receive a Musical Theater degree from The American Music and Dramatic Academy in NYC graduating in 2005.

I continued living and working in NYC in local shows as well as touring nationally until 2008 when I decided to move on to film and TV. I moved to Los Angeles and continued my acting training at The Actor’s Circle Theatre with the amazing Arthur Mendoza to get the “Musical Theater” out of me.

After a few years of acting in film and TV I rediscovered my love for voice overs through working on a few friends projects. To jump start my career in Voice Overs and get the proper training for this competitive field, I studied with William Williams at Aliso Creek Voice Over Studios. And the rest is history.

Testimonials

"RuthAnn portrayed three characters - a mother and two children - in the upcoming video game "Runaway Express" by Icarus Games. She provided creative interpretations for each of the line and was easy to direct when I needed a specific read. I would work with her again."
