About Miriam Olson
My forte is my conversational and relatable way of working with copy. I've been an actor for twenty years and I come to all spots and projects from this angle -- acting first. This gives me a natural and genuine quality and allows me to connect to copy in a very real and even vulnerable way if it's called for. I've also done improv with The Groundings, Improv Olympic and UCB so I'm seamlessly able to switch gears for a comedy spot.
My recent clients include: HYUNDAI, AMICA, PAUL MITCHELL, DISNEY, FRESHLY, TFD, FLORIDA STATE FAIR, ENECO ENERGY, FRESHLY, LUCA + DANNI, NICKELODEON, ELMERS, PLANET FITNESS, DAB, HONDROS COLLEGE OF NURSING, ANSELM UNIVERSITY, NAMCO POOLS (exhaustive list upon request) My forte is a LIKABLE, REALLY CONVERSATIONAL, WARM and REAL read that sounds GENUINE and ENGAGED. Clients have described my voice as the BEST FRIEND IN THE KNOW, FRIENDLY IT GIRL, PROFESSIONAL, FRESH, ENGAGING, & UPBEAT.
In addition to being a voice-over artist, I'm an on-camera actress (both comedic and dramatic) who trained at Upright Citizens' Brigade and Groundlings. I've been told my comedy skills can infuse a piece with added humor, charm or quirk through some natural (and learned) comedic timing and ability to decipher copy. I'm also dramatically trained, skilled and comfortable with my easy access to my emotions and my ability to be vulnerable.
I've worked extensively with the UCLA Medical Department for 10 years and I'm excellent with medical terminology and scientific language. I am also an educator and as you can see from my client list, anything college or educational seems to gravitate towards me (I LOVE learning)!
Based in Los Angeles, I'm available to attend in-studio sessions for live directed sessions. At my professional home studio I can do a directed session via Source Connect, ISDN, ipDTL, phone patch or Skype.

I'm constantly working to hone my craft. Since graduating cum laude at UCLA, I've taken classes and coached with Nancy Wolfson, Mick Wingert, and at Kalmenson and Kalmenson as well as many others. I regularly invest in the best equipment for the best quality sound files. I'm currently performing improv in Los Angeles and I train at UCB and Groundlings which helps keep my skills fresh and my professionalism extraordinary. I work with the UCLA Medical Department with regularity and through that I continue to hone my medical and scientific language skills. Currently I'm getting a Masters of Psychology at Antioch University and am well versed in mindfulness, meditation and alternative therapies which enhance my voice over narration work.Read More

Miriam was fantastic to work with. She was quick with replies and turned around the needed VO track in a days time. She provided us with a number of different takes which was very helpful for us in the edit. Fantastic VO artist to work with and would highly recommend.Nectar Sleep
