Hi there! I am a Toronto-based voiceover professional with several years' experience and agency representation.
I work steadily in the Toronto area and beyond and am fully Pro-Tools equipped for broadcast-quality home voice over production.

I am known and hired for my easily, accessible, warm and friendly delivery.

Also good at humorous or dry, ironic reads.

I have a Master's of Science so I can also read technical information in an accessible, easy to understand manner.

From smooth and professional, to witty and fun, I can make your spot sound the way you hear it in your head!

Dialects and characters a specialty!

I am also a professional singer!

I look forward to working with you.

Warm Regards!
