As a trained, seasoned actor with over 30 years experience, I've been applauded for my versatility. Directors, producers, sound studio owners and engineers alike enjoy working with me because I am very quick to understand and fully embody the character and their direction, while having a blast in the process! I love working with a team and the creative process of bringing the character from the written page to life... staying true to the author's intent - but often times going beyond expectations. I span the horizon of vocal creations from quirky characters to smooth, silky & sultry warm tones. My voice has been described as soothing and surprising, youthful and sexy, professional and fun. You want it - I got it! I have created countless characters and can pull them out at the oddest moments (just ask my friends and family!). I also have the ability to parrot and impersonate lots of interesting folks :)
