I've been doing voiceovers for 25 years in a variety of forms: radio, television and cable commercials; narration for documentaries, corporate presentations, and industrial and training films; and flash presentations for corporate websites. I especially enjoy the challenge of making technical and/or medical terminology sound real and conversational.
One particular area that I have specialized in is creating messages for corporate phone systems, including phone prompts for use in IVR, ACD and auto attendant applications, as well as personal voice mail greetings. I believe these messages convey a critically important first impression of a company or organization and should feel as natural and welcoming as possible in order to connect personally with each individual caller. I also consider them to be an integral part of the company's brand and feel strongly that they should be consistent with the many other ways in which it presents itself to the world.
Voiceover work is a source of pure joy for me. Each person has his or her own unique gifts of creativity, and one of mine is an ability to use the nuances of verbal communication to convey an appropriate tone and quality to meet a client's needs.
I have a Master's degree in Broadcasting and have participated in a wide variety of classes and workout sessions over the years with multiple teachers, both in Southern California and in Oregon.

I can create some of the most natural-sounding, credibility-building voiceovers you'll hear. Taking words on a piece of paper and reading them in a way that sounds as if you're not reading at all is a skill that even some of the most accomplished actors find difficult to master. (Just watch them read from a teleprompter on an awards program and you'll understand what I mean.)
I love the challenge of conveying a tone that is real, conversational (to the extent that is appropriate for a specific assignment) and believable, and I look forward to working with you to accomplish that goal.
