I am an audiobook narrator, voiceover artist, and professional actress with an MA in classical theatre from New York University. My theatrical background provides me with a great facility for expression, creating characters, and a variety of accents. I have performed on stages throughout Southern California and been associated with some of Los Angeles’ most prominent theatre companies, including The Will Geer Theatricum, The Actors’ Gang, and City Garage. I honor literature immensely and love bringing words to life.
My professional post-production experience in film and broadcast television greatly facilitate the production element required to fully produce and master professional audiobooks. I worked as a story editor and assistant editor on MTV’s Made, Bravo’s The It Factor, and VH1’s Totally Obsessed. I have also shot and edited two short documentary films (viewable on my website The Bohemian Heart).
My state-of-the-art studio, Femme Vocale, delivers the highest-quality audio, with latest generation iMac, Focusrite Scarlett audio interface, Pro Tools 10, Audio Technica 2035 large diaphragm studio condenser cardioid mic, Waves plugin suite, and iZotope RX.
My clients include authors, agents, and publishers—among them BeeAudio, New York Times bestselling author Joan Wester Anderson, New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors Ava Lore and Cheryl Bradshaw, bestselling mystery writer Jo Dereske, and award-winning Amazon #1 bestseller Dr. Jennifer Howard.

In addition to recording audiobooks for Audible in a variety of genres, I have performed on stages throughout Southern California and have been associated with some of Los Angeles’ most prominent theatre companies, including The Will Geer Theatricum, The Actors’ Gang, and City Garage. I am also a writer, script consultant, ghost writer, and story editor, having worked with an Oscar-nominated screenwriter, and on MTV’s Made, Bravo’s The It Factor, and VH1′s Totally Obsessed. I am also the creator of two screenplays—Lamina and Six by Nine—and two short documentary films—Tokyo on the Hudson and Last Seen with Johnnie Knight.
I have earned an education as a seamstress, Bingo attendant, forklift driver, machine mechanic, punch press operator, sailor, waitress, bartender, word processor, and clown, to name a few. I also have BFA in Cinema Studies from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts (graduating first in my class), an MA in Classical Theatre from NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study (with a 4.0 GPA), and a second-degree black belt in Shotokan karate.

I’m absolutely delighted…. It’s pure magic to me that the listener can identify each character’s personality so seamlessly, without being conscious that a switch has been made. Bravo.June Creek Books | Jo Dereske (Bestselling Mystery Series Author)
I very much enjoy the timbre of your voice and your smooth narration and the occasional undertone of humor. Just a lovely, lovely read.
Thank you again. You’re wonderfully talented.
Without exaggeration, you are the most talented narrator I have ever listened to. I am so blessed you chose to read my story. I love the characterizations!Verna Clay, Romance Novelist
[T]hank you from the bottom of my heart. You should win the academy award for narrators! You have a beautiful gift.
