I specialze in Commercial & Animated characters. I have also done Promos, and Narration, as well as many In-House projects, that require loads of material to be learned right on the spot, after only one reading of the information.

I have been a Spokesperson extensively for Walmart, (TV & Radio campaigns since 2008), Neutrogena, Denny's, The Gap, Nissan, Lexus, Fuji, Toyota, United Airlines, Mercury Sable, Pamprin, Wonder Bread, Hostess Cupcakes, So Cal Edison, and many more.

I will break down my Animated kinds of characters first (1), then my Commercial sounds underneath that (2): (1) I specialze in Animated characters that range anythng from young kids (girls & boys- all types: gravely textured boys' voices to happy cute-sounding girls, as well as their older counter-part voices as older teens (cool or nerdy teens....), small furry, adorable or snivelly creatures, with lisps and whacky speech impediments- to nasal-voiced nerdy characters, as well as geeky, neurotic characters, and all the way to downright upbeat elves!- I have played the voice of the Heroinne (lower, textured - husky voice = very similar to my own...), and am very convincing as Evil Sorceresses/witches- (bellowing / scary) - ie) as I have voiced for Nickelodeon's "Snow White Special" as the Wicked Step-Mother & Evil Queen, etc. & everything you can think of in between. I specialize in all accents from all major countries/languages, & adept at adding them on to characters if asked on the spot! I have a HUGE expertise in Evil laughs, & am known for my variety and pitch of many laughs, as well as being able to sing in character = since I'm from a Musical Theatre background & can belt with the best of them, as well as sing as Betty Boop (a character I'm known for...) I'm very proud of havng truth in all of my voiceover reads for whatever I'm performing! (2) In my Commercial work, I have performed in all kinds of spots. Even though my natural register is of a husky quality, (which is great for everything from sexy reads to the knowing saleswoman who's sharing a secret-type reads...), I also have used my higher vocal register to play the upbeat character girlfriend, and the quirky girl who delivers funny copy extremely well, the whacky neighbor who's nosey, or the secretary who's questioning her job. I have definitely voiced many Moms of all types: the persnickety Mom asking about her child's health, to the young Mom sharing that her headaches can be relieved with Pamprin. I love performing comedy in well-written scripts, and also do subtle humor well too. If any whacky characters or accents are needed in Commmercial voiceover, I feel fortunate to have the animation background to pull from! (I truly love using any kind of characters in Commercial voiceover, but also respect and perform the simple, humble commercial copy that is needed as well, for particular projects that are out there!)
