HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Having come from a strong theater background, my first voice over job was dubbing Japanese Anime and I instantly fell in love with being behind the mic. I earned my BFA in Acting from The University of Texas at Austin and my MFA in Acting from UCLA.
I have taken a ton of voiceover classes here in Los Angeles with the top coaches including Bob Bergen, Huck Liggett of Voicecaster, Scott Holst from Kalmenson & Kalmenson, Bill Holmes of Compost Productions and the late great Cynthia Songe of Blupka Productions.
Past experience includes animation, commercials, narration, industrials, anime ADR, and gaming.
I also volunteer with The Young Storytellers Foundation developing literacy, self-expression and self-esteem in elementary school students through the art of storytelling and with SAG’s Book Pals program, reading stories to children in public schools.
My signature is warm, fun, friendly and natural storyteller. Other commonly used words people use to describe my voice: likable, friendly, real, caring, approachable, sincere, sweet, intelligent, compassionate, trustworthy, relatable, natural, sunny, motherly, playful, upbeat, endearing, earthy, fun, enthusiastic

Thanks for the nice warm welcome at VOICE2010! Glad Roy introduced us! I had an emcee gig in San Diego on Saturday so that's why I left your table early. Thanks for being one of the volunteers. It was a really great event! Hope you enjoyed it too! All the best!
To say that I enjoyed meeting you at VOICE 2010 would be the biggest understatements of the century. Simply stated, YOU'RE AWESOME!!! You are one of the highlights in my VOICE 2010 experience! So stay in touch. We are practically neighbors, so if you want to get a cup of "Joe" or a Cuban sandwich at Porto's, give me a call or send me a note.
