I have over 30 years of professional experience as a classically trained actor and singer.
My voice is described as: smart, believable, authoritative, grounded, soothing, sophisticated, sensual, playful and witty.
I am perfect for: real “mom-on-the-go”, grocery, medical (proficient in Latin and medical terminology), healthcare, financial, green technology (power/energy/recycling), travel and leisure, spa and resort, and bringing textural and decadent food products to life, such as chocolate and coffee.

Domestic and International: I am American and have lived for extended periods of time in the US in Maryland, New York, California, Texas, Vermont, and Florida as well as internationally in England, Malta, Taiwan, and South Africa.
Acting Training: My career has two distinct paths: classical and contemporary. As a classically trained actor, I studied and performed plays by Shakespeare, Chekhov, and Strindberg to name a few. I understand the texture, nuance, rhythm and cadence in the writing of these great masters of the theater. As an “on-camera” contemporary actor, my work is informed by my training in the Spivak and Meisner techniques. My improv comedy chops come from training with Chicken Lips School of Improv.
Music Training: I have an excellent musical ear which allows me to master many dialects, especially those of North America, England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. My musical training requires the understanding of many languages and the use of IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) to master singing and speaking in them. (Italian, French, German, Latin, Hebrew, Spanish). Latin and French are languages that I have specifically studied.
Medical Training: I am a certified Herbalist. This required the study of botany, anatomy and medicine. I am comfortable with Latin botanical and medical pronunciation.
