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)

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.

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!

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!

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.
