I have a rich alto voice that can range from sultry to sunny. My sound is smart, cultured and conversational, but can also hit a savvy, youthful note in copy with pop culture references.

I am a longtime radio talk show host for NPR and other public radio networks. I currently guest host a number of talk shows on KCRW in Los Angeles, and host the podcast of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C. As voice over talent I have narrated numerous radio and television documentaries, as well as promotional trailers for film festivals, museums and exhibits. I have also voiced industrial training videos and spots for such clients as Human Rights Watch and the Medical Broadcasting Company.

I am quick to take direction, and am known for cutting studio costs by giving consistently clean, fresh reads. My voice has a smile in it, when one is called for, and comes across with both authority and friendliness. In addition to my experience in journalism, I also have a background in drama and improv, and can bring a character to life with multiple interpretations to give clients varied and contrasting options. I can carry off serious as well as comedic scripts.
