About Patricia Shanks

An Emmy Award-winning writer, actor, and former jazz radio show host, I am a recent Ms. Newport Beach Ambassador pageant title holder, and a former TV news arts and entertainment segment host.

My voice and on-camera presentation are intelligent, warm and sincere. My read ranges from corporate, insightful, and serious, to playful and sultry - and regularly visits points in-between.

I am great with Audio Description! Most recent jobs include live description for a weekly national TV sports show, and recorded description for Paramount features. For all your live and recorded audio description and SAP needs, I am your go-to person!
