Chicago, Illinois, US
I have a deep distinctive sound that captures the listener's ear. Professionally recording for over 30 years, I have developed a wide variety of vocal characters from the working mom to the demanding boss, from the every-woman "real" person to the broad cartoon characters. Because I have a deep, husky voice, the "sexy" sound is natural but with the right interpretation and vocal placement, my voice can become a nagging housewife, a little mouse or a machine. I'm an actress with loads of credits... give a listen to see if I might be right for your next project.
Words that describe my abilities include
•Down to earth
•Girl Next Door
•Not Over the Top

I have voiced nearly every possible "type" of voice-over out there from commercials and industrials to database voice systems, computer and video games, live announcer, pod casting and audio books. Cartoons and characters are my favorite. Straight commercial reads, testimonials and industrials seem to bring in the majority of my work but I think that's because it has the largest market demand. Timing and pace are natural for me and I can take a lot of copy, squeeze it into the mandated time frame and still make it sound natural.
With my own state of the art digital sound studio, I can create your project with the professional quality you desire. My turn around time is quick, usually same day or overnight.

"Jamie is a real pro. She adds just the right amount of warmth, if you want warmth. The perfect shot of funny, if you want funny. Or, just enough wry, if you want wry. Ask her for all three at once and your head will explode. You'll know you picked the right talent."-David Lewis, David Lewis Creative Radio & VOX:Chicago Voice Casting
