After graduating from college with a degree in Electronic Media, (major is sound engineering) I began working in a recording studio and soon came face to mic with the wonderful world of voice overs!

As a voice over artist, my primary goal is to convey the fullness of your message by giving your words a voice, bringing your words to life. Combined with a commitment to exceed your expectations by using my professional experience as both a sound engineer and a producer to ‘nail it’, as well as providing exceptional service.
I also offer copy writing as well as on camera and print.
