Congratulations! Your search is over! Especially, if you are looking for a vocally rich, expressive, articulate voice that embodies confidence, moxie, warmth and so much more.
Having a multi-cultural rich background, with over 30 years of dedicated achievements as an actress, director, speaker, voice-over talent, coach and educator in performance… I am ready to help you tell your story to others.
Extensive training and a natural curiosity, has given me the ability to analyze a message and communicate it to others with great vocal command. There is tremendous satisfaction in being able to take the written word and breathe life into it, which is why I am often called a ‘director’s dream.’
Special Talents include accent/dialect work. Although my primary language is General American English, I am well versed in IPA and use the technique developed by Eliza Jane Schneider, a renowned voice-over talent and accent/dialect coach to many Hollywood stars, to learn how to recreate virtually any accent. You can listen to my accent work on my Demo Samples.
Genuine emotional connection is what I strive for in every project. As a Level 3 Certified performer/coach in the ALBA EMOTING Method, trained by Master Teacher Laura Bond, I can give you the emotional impact you seek , or even help you tap into your own emotional range. More importantly, I also promote the ALBA platform of helping actors avoid Emotional Hangovers through a Step Out Method. To learn more about this subject, read my article ‘EMOTIONAL HANGOVER’ in the Southeastern Theatre MagazineMy passion for understanding emotions, can be heard on an interview I gave on #VO BOSS podcast with Anne Ganguzza and Gabriel Nistico on the importance of Emotional Intelligence.
Behind-the-mic voice-over journey includes: using my performance training as an Audiobook Narrator for Learning Ally, Deyan Audio, Findaway, Audible…or Narrating e-Learning modules, voicing Corporate videos, Commercial and Story animations, and Apps. o As a regular Podcast Interview Host for EMAWW’s Emotions Matter Podcast I have the pleasure of interviewing folks world-wide on the subject of Emotional Intelligence.
Public Speaking and Directing Skills have been applied to roles as a Presenter for major events including: Mistress of Ceremonies for the closing of the VOAtlanta Conference, regular Enunciator for the annual Healthy Learners Adult Spelling Bee fundraiser, and Co-directing with Dream Bigg Casting on their Youth Voice-over Plays, that were broadcast at The Ryan Seacrest Studio and social media, to help young talent learn how to connect creatively with material and engage their listeners.
