Rich and resonant. Lively or luscious. Conversational to commanding. With over 20 years of VO experience, my versatile voice has you (Website hidden) voices, delivered daily, from my professional, solar-powered, in-home studio via ISDN, Source-Connect, ipDTL, Skype or phone patch.------------------------------------------------I was a talker right from the start. As the class chatterbox in the first grade my teacher, Mrs. Downey, actually moved my desk next to hers at the front of the class. It was a last ditch effort to prevent me from nattering all day long. Much to her chagrin, I simply talked to her instead of my classmates. But who was to know that all of those checkmarks in the 'talks excessively' boxes of every one of my reports cards was actually just stamina training for my future (Website hidden) to my parents making sure we were exposed to all kinds of 'culture', I was swept away by the siren call of "treading the boards" early on and participated in plays, choirs, and public speaking throughout my childhood. My parents did not blink when I announced I would be pursuing a degree in Theatre Performance. I earned my portion of my tuition by doing summer stock during college -- and it was there that I met my future (Website hidden) days after college graduation, I began my first full-time job as an actor. I toured for two years with "The National Theatre Of The Deaf", a company I had seen perform throughout my childhood. I was tasked with the responsibility of playing my own characters, as well as providing the voices of multiple characters for deaf actors who were signing their lines. During my first year with NTD, the Artistic Director asked me if I would be willing to do the voiceover for a video about the company's work...I would make some extra money and get to try something I had never done (Website hidden) the mic in that studio, a lightbulb came on. I realized that the combination of working as a voiceover actor and a stage actor held a very special appeal. My actor's toolbox applied in two very different ways -- a rehearsal process followed by the run of a stage show where you have to live the character start to finish every night... and a listen-closely, deliver-quickly world where surgical precision is rewarded because time is money.I was hooked. This dance between voiceover acting and stage acting became the new (Website hidden) I am so grateful to get to do both, practically every single day. Thanks to all of you who keep that dream coming true.

Gifted with a beautiful voice, a wicked sense of humor and she knows her way around a studio. Agencies love her, she helps old ladies cross th-...there I go with the bragging again…"Tim Underwood, Producer, The Web Voice.com
"In a word, professional, convenient, affordable. OK 3 words. Kymberli has a beautiful voice and lots of experience...what else is there."Brent R. Marshall, Voices Online
"Working with Kymberli was a refreshing pleasure from the norm. I was in a last minute bind and Kymberli not only helped me in a very timely manner, but also very professionally. Her voice work was met with the highest compliments from the clients. She has a place on the top of my list."Jim Welch, Producer, Live Global Network
"From bubbly character voices to smooth narrations, Kymberli always delivers exceptional reads with fast turn-arounds and a great 'can-do' attitude!"Marc Lyman, President of Flashpoint Studios.com
"In delivering narration for documentary, communicating complex ideas while not losing the human element is such a challenge. I've worked with many beautiful voices, but not all have been equally smart. Kymberli Colbourne's strong acting background informs her work invaluably. Because she is also a fine listener, our recording sessions have saved me time (ergo, dollars) developing a read that conveys all that I'm after. It seems no amount of detailed direction coming from me is lost when the mic is hers. 'Always a true pleasure working with Ms. Colbourne."Benjamin von Cramon, Benjamin von Cramon Productions
