"Confident, calm voice you trust implicitly."

Commercial / Promo / Narration / Audiobooks / Live Announce

"I trust you." It's a frequent comment - a lovely compliment - from my clients. It means my reads are believable, that the product or service I'm promoting is valuable and worth the customer's investment. My background is diverse, and it informs every project. I have worked with clients in a wide array of industries, from major automotive, to beauty, to communications, to technology. Each is asking for the consumer's trust. Understanding their businesses, their corporate missions and their project goals is essential in bringing out the truth of their copy.

 Besonderheiten

I am Media Chair and past-president of The Arts Council for CSUN (California State University, Northridge) and have created and produced awards and events for the organization. One highlight was producing and hosting the Music Industry Studies "Industry Insights" event featuring Emmett Chapman, inventor of the Chapman Stick, an electric, stringed instrument played by tapping on the strings. And I've been a Stick player myself since 2015.
