Languages

English (North American), German, French (Parisian)

Accents

British, French, French (Parisienne), German, North American, US South (Deep South, Dixie, Delta)

Ages

Middle Aged, Young Adult

Special Skills

Business, Documentaries, Educational, Internet, Music, Podcasting, Radio, Telephone, Television, Videogames

Credentials

Education

As a graduate of Brown University with a degree in Theatre, Speech & Dance, I have engaged professionally with the spoken word ever since my college days. I also studied acting at the American Conservatory Theatre Summer Training Congress, and for a year in the U.K. at Drama Studio London.

Professional acting internships include the La Jolla Playhouse and Shakespeare Santa Cruz.

More recently, I trained in voice over at Voice One in San Francisco under Elaine Clark and other notable teachers and professionals such as Sarah Kliban, Bob Wood, John Crane, Tom Chantler, and David Rosenthal.

So far I have focused on commercials and narration, however my theatre background has given me a facility with character work as well.

Born and raised in Germany until the age of 16, and having attended a French Lycee there through grade 9, I am a multi-lingual performer who regularly enjoys using my language skills and experience.

Service Description

I bring a warm intelligence & confidence to complex narrations, with excellent clarity and diction.

For commercials I excel at the conversational, "real person" genre, with a relaxed believability and authenticity. I can also deliver an upbeat approach to getting my listeners excited about the subject matter without sounding "sell-y".

My German is native, and my French fluent and accent-free. I do not sound like an American speaking these languages, but rather like the real deal.
