Highlights

As a singer, I have trained for over 15 years with various vocal coaches and classical and jazz performance professors. Because of this training, I am especially sensitive to tonalities, diction, and consonants. Through my poetry studies, I have gained a substantial l knowledge of phrasing, breath placement, and emphasis. Poetry recitation has taught me how to read or recite words in a straight forward manner, underplaying personality and emotion in order to let the words "speak themselves". Theatre, on the other hand, has taught me how to apply emotion and emphasis to texts. I am TEFL certified (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), and have experience speaking in a simplified, slow pace.

I am a highly literate 26 year-old, caucasian, female. I speak like someone who delights in words. I have a clear, elegant voice.
