About

Friendly. Conversational. Down-to-Earth.

I've been an actor for twenty years and I come to all spots and projects from this angle -- acting first. This gives me a natural, genuine and warm quality and allows me to connect to copy in a very real and even vulnerable way if it's called for. I've also done improv with The Groundings, Improv Olympic and UCB so I'm seamlessly able to switch gears for a comedy spot. I've been told my comedy skills can infuse a piece with added humor, charm or quirk through some natural (and learned) comedic timing and ability to decipher copy.

I've worked extensively with the UCLA Medical Department for 10 years and I'm excellent with medical terminology and scientific language. I am also an educator and as you can see from my client list, anything college or educational seems to gravitate towards me (I LOVE learning)! Now I'm endeavoring to learn more about psychology and am getting a Masters in Psychology.

Source Connect Standard: @miriamkorn

My studio (Whisper Booth) is fully equipped w/remote capabilities (Source Connect, ISDN, ipDTL, phone patch, Skype). I'm able to deliver within 1-24 hours depending on the copy size. I deliver broadcast quality files and am efficient, hard-working, thorough, expedient and dare I say, fun! I use the Audio-Technica AT4040 mic, Adobe Audition, Twisted Wave, MacBook Pro, Scarlet Focusrite 2i2.

Let me know how I can help!

My forte is taking direction and creating an engaging and conversational read. My extensive years of improv and on-camera acting experience help me bring vibrance to any script and bring forth the storytelling within the copy -- whether it's a 15 second spot or an hour long narration. My voice is often described as friendly, relatable, real, and the best friend/ confidant who knows what's up. I do commercials, internet, IVR, E-learning, Corporate Narration, Animation, Video Games, and tutorials.
