My voice has a wide range of inflections ranging from soothing to dramatic tones in narrations, to trusting and animated in children’s materials, to a sultry and sexy inflection for adult content, and professional tones for presentations and the like.

I began my voice over work 13 years ago in a small radio station in Lake County Illinois. I got my start there doing commercials and reading for ads. My specialty at the time was being the "Sexy Voice" for most of the local bar and night club spots.
I later wrote commercials for my employer and performed them at "The Fish" radio station and "The Bull" country radio.
After some time off for family matters, I picked up again with voice over work in Atlanta,GA doing commercial ads for Jim Ellis Volswagon, La Parilla restaurants, and Naturally Fresh salad dressings.
I've been told that I have a voice that is very well suited for "The Sexy Stuff." And to the other extreme, I have been told I have a very comforting tone to be able to read for children and also to narrate.
My passion started in high school by taking performing arts, media production classes and journalism. I performed a McDonald’s commercial with my drama class and I have loved performing both on the camera and in the studios.
I was blessed to have on the job training from a local radio personality who gave me voice lessons and showed me the ropes of the voice over and radio industry. He "hooked me up" with the start of my voice over pursuit.
I studied in a voice over class to learn where my strengths and weaknesses are and have work along side a veteran voice over artist who has helped shape my talent and passion for this line of work. I have broadened my performing talents to the big screen and have been in two movies; the latest being an extra in "The Three Stooges."
While I love being on the set or on stage, I am most comfortable behind the microphone doing voice overs
