Service Description

I was a live on-air radio host and producer for five years on a women’s’ show called “Radioactive Feminism” plus TV appearances as a “consumer panelist” on programs such as Style by Jury Father’s Day special 2007 (as a juror), MuchMusic, Benmergui Live!, The Eugenia Last Show, and a feature on a documentary titled “Western Eyes”. Slice TV also filmed me in June 2007 for an episode of Plastic Makes Perfect on public opinion concerning cosmetic injections.

During my on-air radio days only a few of my segments were pre-recorded so I had to be "on" with my Q&A's and conscious of my timing and speech inflections to be understood in a clear precise manner.

In September 2006 I sang live at a Cancer Society benefit concert the ballad “I Hope You Dance” by Leanne Womack. After my performance the gala host said I sounded just like her. I did that performance on a dare and had no idea my voice could do it. People have frequently commented that my way with speech enunciation can really tell a story as much as just stating the words. Hence their idea I check out voiceovers. I didn’t give it any thought until November when I participated on a female entrepreneur’s roundtable podcast titled “Cubicle Divas” by executive coach Leesa Barnes. Then …when the Crystal Andrus Show on Hay House radio had me on as a live guest in March 2007 on an Internet broadcast for a half hour it convinced me to give voiceovers a go.

Thanks to a few friends in in the TV and Radio production business ... I have sourced a list of professional recording studios at reasonable prices for projects that require full studio capability.

Experience

Polished professional "newscaster" tone for business presentations and corporate projects.

Warm, witty, effervescent tempo "sense of humor" range for PSAs, commercials, characters, storytelling, documentary narration, etc. Inquisitive style but adaptable to the script and context of dialogue. I am intuitive in interpreting script ... for pace, speed, emphasis, diction, where to stress words, etc in my delivery.

Other Languages: Conversational French and Spanish (Basic) if the scripts are written phonetically.

Documentary Interviewing (voice only) for The Savage Film Company based in Toronto, Canada.

My natural curiosity and fascination in that "roving reporter" way still gets the best of me ... I am a freelance writer on health and lifestyle stories for Tiago Transformations, an online well-being magazine.

Education

My initial career dream was to be a journalist in the foreign correspondent kind of way. Instead I worked as a public relations executive in the financial, health, and pharmaceutical sectors before entering the conference industry. In my work life I am called upon to do public speaking during business summits and workshops introducing executive presenters to a large audience.

I have been involved on and off over the years with Toastmasters and try to make it to an Improv class when I can. After my benefit performance I began more formal singing lessons and joined a choir. I am a member in a storytellers association for those seeking hands on experience in front of an audience of various ages and stages of life.
