ABOUT ME

I'm a former litigating attorney. As many of you know, attorney = actor. I conducted hundreds of trials and hearings, and have been a public speaker in many capacities for ten years.

I enjoy adapting to direction, for audition or recording purposes. Need multiple reads with various inflections? Can do. Like subtlety? Me too.

I can make text sound sincere, fluid and gorgeous. I specialize in narration/training voices, with a rich, versatile tone. I pride myself in my clean and professional reads. My training experience and years as an attorney have strongly influenced my characterization.

I consider myself a resource for the creation of voice-driven training modules, using my experience to suggest edits, alterations, strategies, etc. Those being trained will believe I'm speaking extemporaneously rather than from a script.

In addition, I often serve (upon request) as an editor of copy. With the client's permission, I can transform text into its most "readable" form. I'll happily take copy and deliver it as written -- or will fine-tune it, THEN bring it to life vocally.

I'm a true voice actor, and my significant stage experience (twelve plays in the past five years, many improv shows and readings, etc.) has kept me sharp.

I've narrated many industrial and training pieces; recorded hundreds of radio and TV spots; and delivered at least 200 web-based trainings.
