Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, US
My voice has been described by other voice over professionals and casting as warm, resonant and uniquely pleasant and interesting. If I were in an orchestra, I would be the cello. In my career, I have always been motivated by the importance not only of word choice, but how each word is delivered. I am fascinated by people, so I'm very attuned to the copy and how my read will affect the listener. The following adjectives have been used to describe my voice: professional, articulate, soothing, inspiring, intelligent, sensual, honest, highly effective - and perfect for narration.

My work includes audio/video educational projects as well as audio training modules, e.g. English as a foreign language, and live radio plays. I have extensive background working with non-profit organizations, and a large body of experience as a live moderator/speaker at professional conferences and workshops nationally. In my younger years, I performed in many plays in school and community theater, and I minored in theater in college, so I have many years of acting training.
