I have a great home studio & can turn around jobs within an hour.
I work very quickly, nailing the script right away,
saving clients money & keeping 'em happy.

Here's what my latest clients had to say:
"Carolyn was fantastic to work with. Great response time, fast work, and an amazing voiceover. -Jon"
"Your voice sounds great and you did a great job! thanks, Max"

I've also worked as a freelance Sr Copywriter for
great ad agencies around the world my entire career.
So I know how to read copy & take direction well.

My uniquely textured voice is smoky, cool, raspy, sexy & spicy
with an air of confidence that's trustworthy & approachable.
I have a very open attitude that's always fun to be around.
I can be hilarious, sincere, or serious.
Above all, I'm very professional.

If you want an Advertising Copywriter with years of experience writing & directing commercials behind the mic at your next session,
call me! (Phone hidden)

Service Description

Most of my recording sessions run less than 40 min for longer scripts since I tend to "nail it" right away.
You can phone patch in via ipDTL (the new ISDN), Skype or conference.

Experience

Booking national spots for major clients - both TV and radio.

I've also worked as a freelance Sr Copywriter
for award-winning global ad agencies the past 2 decades.
So I have an understanding of ad copy and what the client
is trying to convey about their product or service.

Having produced several radio spots & commercials over my career,
I also know my way around the recording studio.
I can turn around jobs in my own studio in less than an hour.

Most of my sessions run less than 40 min which makes the clients happy!

I am SAG-AFTRA and able to do non-union work as well.

Carolyn did a great job and was super open to direction. After only a few minutes we honed in the tone and sound we were going for. We will consider her for future jobs for sure!

Testimonials

AWESOME.
Excellent as always! Great work and fast turn-around time.

We recorded the bulk of our job at a studio we had picked out,
and when we needed a couple of pickups,
Carolyn was able to record them at her home studio - quality was identical!

She has a great grasp of not only what we were looking for,
but also presented a few different options and takes
that helped us really hone in on the final outcome.

Thank you Carolyn!

Audi

Your tv series promo has been a HUGE draw the past weeks and we actually had record numbers of attendance/viewership as we launched the series on Sunday. The VO was so beautiful!

Joe

Thank you for all of your hard work over the passed 3 seasons. It's been a pleasure working with you. I can't believe that we are gearing up to start on season 4 already.
