My vocal ranges are: warm, professional, gentle, personable, authoritative, real/natural, upbeat, energetic, youthful, flirty, commercial and motivational. I have a range of laughs from high pitched to giggly and full laughter. I can sound like a: snob, ditzy female, hippie, and valley girl/Californian. I can sound like I have a sinus cold, drunk, stoned, sleepy, crying, in pain, yawning, sneezing, weak and having a hard time breathing. I can mew like a kitten, meow like an adult cat, hiss, sound like a cat in a fight and sound like a cat that is vomiting. I can also bark and howl like a small or large dog. Because I am also a photographer in the entertainment industry, I have built a reputation for being professional and my delivery times for all of my work are fast. Voice overs can be delivered in less than 4 days depending on the size of the project and the needs.

A recent assignment was to record an audio book for children where I created voices for the characters who were animals. I have recorded many outgoing messages for a variety of companies. I have been an extra in shorts and feature films.
As a child I would mimic Katheryn Hepburn in her elder years with her Transatlantic accent. In my teen years, I would mimic Bart Simpson from, "The Simpsons" and Beavis from, "Beavis and Butthead." After seeing the movie, "Valley Girl" in my youth, I could not stop speaking that way for months. I've created cat jingles, skits, song lyrics and practice characters constantly. I grew up practicing accents and people used to think I was from New York in grade school because I was stuck in the New York "R's" for a while.
One of my earliest jobs out of high school was working as the lead hostess in a BBQ restaurant. They had a PA system to call guests whose tables were ready. Out of boredom some busy weekends I would use a British or Western accent. Staff and guests enjoyed it. In a bar, I convinced someone I was from Italy speaking with an Italian accent. I performed at a county fair once with my cat sounds. I have accidentally communicated with or scared cats. I can sing as most of my characters if needed. Actually, I quite enjoy doing that and crack myself up. My Cats have been an audience to the show a number of times and I think they beyond tolerate it. They enjoy it when I sing Jazz.
In high school, I had an acting class, took photography and sang in the choir. Before high school, I sang with the church choir. More recently, I finally took a singing class to learn the breathing techniques and my teacher wanted me to begin jamming with bands. Instead, I chose to work in the voice over field beyond entertaining friends, family and cats.
My ability to speak with a rough Japanese accent comes from copying my Mother who is not offended and says I sound like her, nailed it.
Self taught and a lot of practice.
