I started out in the entertainment business as a Broadway Show dancer. But, I've been a VO talent for 25 plus years voicing everything from wacky characters to corporate voices. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, but spend a good amount of time in LA as well. I spent 14 years as the radio spokesperson for Albertsons Supermarkets nationwide. Videogames, Medical, Tech, IVR, Motion Picture ADR, Station Promos, Imaging, Internet Podcasts, and projects too numerous to mention, round out my career. I love putting all the pieces of the puzzle together and I know how to get the job done on time. My self direction and editing skills make your job easier.
People ask about my "money voice", and I have to answer that vocal versatility is what makes my voice a money voice.
I've been sharing my VO skills with people since 1988 at my San Francisco studio, VoiceMedia/Susan & Friends Casting. I'm proud to say my past students include "Sully" Sullenberger, the heroic Captain of the jet that crash landed in the Hudson River.and demo production for Jon Morris- Andy in TOY STORY 1,2,AND 3 and Carlos Alazraqui, Deputy James Garcia,Reno 911, Family Guy, Happy Feet, Finding Nemo and more. Life is good!
