HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I have had formal training in both commercial and narration voiceover at the Denver Center Theatre Academy, including private coaching and intensive workshops in audio narration with Robin Miles and New York’s Marla Kirban and Bruce Kronenberg. I am also a regular audio narrrator for the Denver Chapter for the Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic.
After arriving from across 'the pond', I spent six years in New York City (before starting a family) working for esteemed corporations and non-profits, such as WNET PBS, organizing a continuum of fundraising and promotional special events. I am a genuine enthusiast of the creative process and am elated to bring it to the Commercial and Narration voice over markets.

Native British Accent, Age Range 35-55.
Rather than a typical ‘stiff upper lip’ my accent is softened by my warm and comforting ‘ever so slight’ Northern lilt. I have been described as: refined, upscale, sophisticated, posh, luxurious/regal, articulate, educated, well-travelled, worldly, detailed, precise and matter of fact, trustworthy and reassuring. A deeper resonance lends itself well for a sultry and sensual sound.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Patsy 'airheaded' Cockney, Sharon (sharp tongued Mancunian,) Jo down to earth Northern lass, Stella - wannabe 'Lady of the Manor' and Ms. Roach, Scottish (think Prime of Miss Jean Brody).

Since we've been Facebook friends for a while you may recall I travelled in the opposite direction and am in Istanbul, Turkey. VU is a very different animal from FB however, and I'm sure you'll find it a great home for all things VU. Glad to see you've already found Penny's PTU group. There's also a rather quieter group for expats here http://www.voiceoveruniverse.com/group/expatvoices - come along and liven us up!!!
I am delighted to be among the first to welcome you to VoiceOver Universe! You have joined a great community filled with talented and very generous people. You'll love it here!
I'd also like to invite you to join my VU Group, Positive Thinkers UNITE. It's a great place to get positive reinforcement and encouragement. We welcome all forward thinking voice actors to join. We hope you will count yourself among us!
Check out the other groups as well by rolling over FORUM at the top of the page and choosing GROUPS from the drop down menu. There are so many GREAT ones!
I wish you the best of luck in your VO career. If I can be of any help, please let me know.
