"Sweet character voice with Southern charm & a dash of Disney!"
Dana Weddle

Originally from Oklahoma, I've landed in Los Angeles and am working from my professional home studio. I've got 14 years on the mic under my belt! I'm fully equipped with Source Connect and a Neumann TLM 103 mic. Adobe Audition and Twisted Wave are my DAWs of choice. I pride myself on my meticulous proofreading skills and fast turnaround! My clients' needs are my number one priority and from me, you can expect quick and clear communication. I'm also very flexible with my revisions policy. I aim to make you happy and get you exactly what you need. Can't wait to get my voice on your next project!

14 years ago I was caught singing at my desk and the ad exec I shared a (half) wall with asked me to pop in the booth and lend some vocals to his commercial. The rest is history! My favorite clients include NBA, University of Phoenix, Taco Mayo, Miracle-Gro, Psyop video games, Lemonade Insurance and Thriftbooks. Also thrilled to be an Audible/ACX Narrator for kids' and YA fiction books with lots of characters. I have spent the last eight years as on-air character improv talent for radio stations across the US. In other acting work, I was awarded the KO digital Best Actress award for my on-screen acting in the film, In Tune with You. I am excited about my upcoming film, Golden Arm, to be released on HBO in early 2021. A true love of mine is singing, whether in radio jingles or onstage in a musical production. Favorite musical role? Cathy in The Last Five Years.

Please see my attached demo to hear an original children's storybook song I wrote for a client's book release. Always happy to improvise in song! One of my great strengths is character work as well. I spent time after college in advertising as a copywriter and proofreader for years, so I am happy to lend my expertise in that area. When I am not on the mic, I make VO demos for clients so I feel very comfortable with sound design, whether it be adding music or a fully fleshed out ambient sound scene. Though not a native speaker, I am fully fluent in Spanish and speak with a Latin American (Guatemalan) accent. I spent two and a half years living and working as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala.
