Bringing a human connection to the spoken word.
You’ve spent countless hours designing the look and feel of your brand. Now you need a sound that reflects that brand that reaches your audience.
You want to establish trust. You want your current and future clients to be engaged and entertained.
You need someone to bridge the gap with a genuine, human connection that evokes the right response for your message.
I’m here to help.
With a Masters in Fine Arts and decades of experience on stage and behind a microphone, I know how to communicate your message so it sparks a response in your listeners.
Whether you are wanting to relay information, establish trust, support visuals, or tell a story…it’s all about connection.
To evoke laughter, empathy, trust. To inspire. To make someone take action. Enjoy a story. Believe in a character…
What does the sound of your message need to convey?
More “about me”
I migrated from the San Francisco Bay Area (where I was raised and earned a BA in theatre at SFSU) to pursue acting in Seattle (where I met my upstate NY writer husband). Over the past quarter-century, I’ve narrated audiobooks in Los Angeles, completed an MFA in Acting/Directing in Virginia Beach, acted in stages on both coasts, and have now established a home base in the beautiful Bluegrass region of Kentucky.
I love puns more than I should. I adore making people laugh. I also go nuts over a beautifully designed spreadsheet (and post-its, and highlighters …). In clinical terms, I’m an organized creative – which makes me a very productive entrepreneurial artist. An experienced actor and voice over talent that clients love to work with again and again.
When I’m not behind a mic, in rehearsal, or on stage, I’m sampling my way through a local farmers market, volunteering at church reading to kids after school, or curled up with my hubby and two tabby cats binging Brooklyn 99 and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Looking back over the many geographical locations and occupations, I can NOW see the common denominator that links all my work and relationships: CONNECTION
Connecting for others and connecting with others.
You can read all the professional details on my resume – but I hope this gives you a more fully realized view of the curly, quirky, capable and qualified actor I am today.
