HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I joined the voice over industry almost three years ago. I have trained with William Williams of Aliso Creek Studios in Burbank, CA.
I believe my natural voice range is between 25 – 40 years of age. By nature, I have a warm, friendly voice. I am accomplished at providing calm, caring, conversational, supportive, folksy, girl-next-door, sentimental, believable soft sell reads. On the other end, I am able to provide upbeat, bubbly, goofy, high-energy reads.
I am easy to work with and strive to give my client what he/she needs. I am an excellent, direct-able voice actor and can interpret copy and words and connect emotionally with the listening audience. When you request an emotion in my voice for a certain line, I can produce that emotion and recall it if necessary. Some examples might be angry, happy, sad, disappointed, concerned, worried, confused, and surprised.
I am a great choice for radio and TV commercials, training videos, computer surveys, internet, and podcast.
