commercial -- Al Fresco chicken


I'm the girl who makes her animals talk. And I even created voices for my children before they could talk, much to my husband's chagrin. So my love of doing silly voices, accents and characters is a natural fit for a career in voiceover.

But I quickly found out that I just love being behind the microphone, period. It's so much FUN! Whether I'm voicing a corporate training project or a radio or television commercial or creating an animated character, I love bringing words to life and creating stories.

My natural voice is conversational, believable, friendly and warm, like the girl next door, with a professional edge. I can also sound sassier and edgier, more Generation X.

I'm also fluent in conversational French and can speak English with a French accent too.

My main goal is to make clients happy, so I'm happy to take direction and work with you in order to make you and your listeners/customers excited about your project.

Barbara was both professional and easy to work with, and I would definitely recommend her. He demo reading of the project material was excellent, and she took the time to give a detailed written introduction of herself as well. After her first recording, which was good already, the client requested a second version with a different set of directions. This she quickly turned around, and very accurately interpreted the new requirements as to the tone he was going for. The project (a PSA video concerning the importance of reading to children at an early age) required a voice reading that was warm, friendly and conversational in nature; all of which she conveyed in her recordings.

All in all a very good experience from start to finish.
