I naturally have a lower, smoky, smooth voice. Think chocolate, perfume, alcohol, luxury car ads. I can easily turn on sultry and seductive, but I can also be pampered, privileged, upper crust/snobby. I am a singer with a solid 3-1/2 octave range up to 1st soprano so my voice can stretch! Leaping from an Eartha Kitt Catwoman, I am also the savvy mom shopping for back-to-school deals with her kids, as well as the perky, frantic, fast-talking, multi-tasking, slightly wacky Tina Fey-like comedienne. I have a fairly extensive knowledge of medical terms and pronunciations and regularly voice medical and technical VOs. My voice is more on the professional, mature sounding side as opposed to super laid back casual. I hear on a regular basis how well I take direction. So if there's something you want and you just need to tweak it 1%, I can do that 1%. On the other hand, if you need 200% more in either direction, I can do that as well!

I started doing voiceover work in 1999 for corporate training videos, IVR and radio ads. I now work full time in voiceover producing videos for the auto, health and advertising industries. I also do extra voiceover gigs outside of my full time job for various clients.
