I have a great home studio & can turn around jobs within an hour.
I work very quickly, nailing the script right away,
saving clients money & keeping 'em happy.

Here's what my latest clients had to say:
"Carolyn was fantastic to work with. Great response time, fast work, and an amazing voiceover. -Jon"
"Your voice sounds great and you did a great job! thanks, Max"

I've also worked as a freelance Sr Copywriter for
great ad agencies around the world my entire career.
So I know how to read copy & take direction well.

My uniquely textured voice is smoky, cool, raspy, sexy & spicy
with an air of confidence that's trustworthy & approachable.
I have a very open attitude that's always fun to be around.
I can be hilarious, sincere, or serious.
Above all, I'm very professional.

If you want an Advertising Copywriter with years of experience writing & directing commercials behind the mic at your next session,

AWESOME. Handled the bulk of our job at a studio we had picked out, and when we needed a couple of pickups, Carolyn was able to record them at her home studio - quality was identical! Has a great grasp of not only what we were looking for, but also presented a few different options and takes that helped us really hone in on the final outcome. Thanks Carolyn!
