For more than 15 years I have been voicing everything from animated animals to exercise videos. From conventional radio and TV spots to the fun and peculiar to the down right outrageous, my client list is long, distinguished and wildly diverse. You can catch me now on Netflix (ADR) acting my little heart out, as the voice of 5 different characters in the epic TV series Babylon Berlin, as well as the English voice in several feature films and documentaries. (gotta love Netflix!) You have also heard me in commercial spots for Disney Live Productions, Benjamin-Moore Paints, Astro Yogurt, Chrysler, Jeep and Clairol Herbal Essences to name a few.
Teaching seems to be a sweet-spot for me with 7 years of guiding runners through stretch and strength exercises in videos for Runner’s World Magazine (Rodale Press), encouraging 5th graders to master math, helping hearing challenged kids accelerate their learning and even guiding investors through the intricacies of risk analytics software. (whew!)
But this all started out as fun…. my “in” to voiceovers, and my ever-lasting-love is animation! I love the quirky, crazy characters! From the tiny, precocious, overly-neurotic, adorably enthusiastic talking animals (who doesn’t love a wise firefly or a squirrel with a job!) to the sexy resilient femme fatal superhero or even self-absorbed and bubbly trophy-wife troll (really, a troll) … getting your characters off the page, and like magic … popping them into life …. is where I will shine every time! And yup! You guessed it! this all sprung out of classically trained acting.
I’ve had 10 years of vocal training in Linklater Voice, Fitzmaurice Vocal Technique, Alexander Technique and Somato Respiratory Integration (breathwork). Additionally, I have performed Shakespeare, theatre, film, television, on-camera commercials and even hosting for HGTV. Most recently, I’m venturing into the world of stand-up comedy and sitcoms in Los Angeles. I train and perform weekly, produce my own comedic content, take long beach walks when time allows and, most importantly, get up just a little before dawn to get my polished little toes into class and onto a yoga mat.
