For Commercials my range is extremely flexible and directible. I was know in the Portland/Seattle market as the "whatever voice you need" voice. I can deliver a high intensity sell, a sexy playful tease, a rich and knowledgeable voice of persuasion, and a wide variety of national and international accents. In Education/Announcer/Narration I speak with a real, melodic, non-accented American voice that's rich, warm, friendly, down to earth, and inviting. One client described it as "sincere clarity." In Corporate and Professional Presentations I have a well tuned vocal skill based on having had the opportunity to deliver live interactive training to over 40 major businesses and corporations. I know how to keep them listening. In Audio Books and Animation I present a huge arsenal of Character Voices and can maintain a consistent, long term voicing. Having worked professionally as an actor for over 30 years, I bring emotional reality to changes in vocal pitch, intonation, and intensity. My voice has been termed honest, friendly, edgy, persuasive, passionate, heartwarming, and "hot." Experience what I can do for you.

I was the top voiceover talent in the Portland/Seattle market during the time that I lived there (from 1994 to 2000). I have been coaching individuals over the past few years and have relocated to Southern California. I now work exclusively through two different VO sites as my time has been taken up with presentations, writing, and coaching. I miss the pleasure and creativity I had working in the Northwest, so I've decided to re-enter the voiceover marketplace. I have a historical perspective combined with current trends. I don't work from the past, I bring it to the present and continue to follow the changes in the demands of the VO industry.
I have a BA degree from SUNY Binghamton with two years Post Graduate studies. During this time I was personal assistant to Arthur Lessac, author of "The Use and Training of the Human Voice." My Post Graduate work culminated in Co-developing "Body Wisdom: The Use and Training of the Human Body" with Arthur Lessac.
I was a founding member of Colonnades Theater Lab in NYC, an Off Broadway Repertory Theater. I both acted in and trained the company.
I have taught Voice, Speech, Acting, and Movement for both the stage and film/television at over 40 Colleges, Universities, and Professional Organization/Institutions. My most recent professorship was at Middlebury College in 2006 and 2008.
I participated in a weekly developmental voice workshop, over the course of a year (1996), with Rex Recording and the top six voice talents of the Northwest where we work on creating new and interesting vocal challenges, created spec copy for in house projects, and assisted each other in the continued development of our vocal range and application.
I currently work as a private coach in all areas of the communication arts. I work with corporate professionals, personal self expression, and actors. I am known in LA by a number of agents and managers as their "secret weapon." I am the individual who will be brought into a circumstance when the performer is stuck, frustrated, and losing confidence. I have a 100% success rate with the individuals I work with.
I have been an on set coach to both Television and Film. I work with the actors who "freeze up" and are unable to fulfill the directors needs.
I have worked in the corporate sector, delivering training in "Successful Interview Techniques", "Vocal Clarity and Emotional Reality", and "Personal & Interpersonal Communication Skill Building."
My eclectic background brings a unique and qualitative expressiveness to my work.
