Highlights

Successful storyteller and audiobook narrator with a deep and rich, yet velvety toned voice. My voice lends itself very well to calm scenarios.. but I can alter my voice to achieve an animated or comedic feel/tone as well. I am from New York, originally, but spent many summers growing up in the Applalachian mountains of southwestern VA. I have also been living in the Carolinas for 20 years now. I can easily achieve accents from the Northern and Southern US. I am also able to impersonate well known voices such as Morgan Freeman, James Earl Jones, Sam Elliot, Sylvester Stallone, George Clooney, Lawrence Fishburne, and even Eddie Murphy... among other famous celebrities. If you're looking for impersonations of any of the lower registered celebrity voices, I'd also invite me to your next soundalike project, if I were you. ;)

Experience

I am a songwriter and composer, as well as a former professional radio announcer, with over 10 years of combined broadcast and internet radio experience. I produced and hosted my own late night radio program, which was popular in Charlotte, NC.

I also have audiobook, film, television, and theatre experience.. with speaking roles in several independent films and theatrical performances.

I have a deep yet smooth radio voice that lends itself well to a wide variety of audio projects, but I can also push my voice to achieve many unique voicings, characters, and accents. I put my heart into all my compositions, and all my readings. I'd love to work on your next project!
