Let’s just say that I’ve been a pro voiceover talent for… more than a couple decades. It all started when I volunteered at a local NPR station. There, I learned the board, mic technique, how to read copy and speak off-the-cuff, on-the-fly. I shopped my first cassette (!) demo tapes around town and to the local cable station where I voiced commercials and hosted a TV news segment. From then on, the world was my oyster. I’ve been spreading my voice all over the country, working for clients based all over the world.

My most recent adventures include live audio description for Fox Sports WWE Friday Night Smackdown, and audio description for Paramount features. My voice has been the ticket to many exciting places I might not otherwise ever have seen.

Background in classical music and studies in several foreign languages make me the perfect choice for those tough technical, medical, artsy programs with lots of difficult pronunciations. I’m an Emmy Award-winning writer, actor, recording artist singing jazz standards, and former pro opera singer. But, most of all, I’m looking forward to the future and working with you! Take me to my next exciting adventure and your important project!
