About

My background in musical theatre and as a TV news journalist prepared me well for my now 20-years as a full-time voice actor. I learned to take direction, as well as to self-direct; to vary my delivery to match what the script called for, and to work quickly and accurately. I relate to, and respect your deadlines and meet them with ease. I work from my own professional studio, equipped with Source Connect Standard. I have a deep, rich, sincere voice. I can do sell, Sell! or SELL!! without getting screechy. I make short work of long, technical reads. Lightning-fast delivery of your audio, guaranteed to please. Check out my demos and if you like what you hear, please click the little red heart so you can find me in the future!
