Voice Actor, Copy Writer, Voiceover Coach, Vocal Coach, Linguist, Dialect Coach, Speech-Language Interpreter
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Raised on a working cattle ranch on the edge of the Badlands, and first introduced to acting at The Yale Summer Drama Program, I've since studied voice with Will Lebow, Cynthia Songe (@ Sue Blu/Blupka), Patsy Rodenburg (Sir Ian McKellan & Dame Judi Dench's vocal coach), and at the National Voice Intensive. Over the past 15 years, I've brought to life tons of animated characters for Humongous/Atari, Microsoft, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in addition to working on regional (Colorado Lottery) and national ads (AOL) both behind the mic and in front of the camera in both Spanish and English. On stage, I've been anyone from a pregnant West Texan to a manic Meryl Streep. Currently, I'm working on writing both a short film and a feature, exploring cross-cultural and gender constructs, and the short IFP Spotlight Award-Winning project I had a supporting role in, "Betty", which investigates mental illness, just premiered as a work-in-progress to exceptionally positive reviews in Seattle. Rep'd by talented Tom @ VoX in LA, jazzy Julie @ Real People, devine Diane @ aRia, and inCredible Kathleen @ Donna Baldwin...
