Service Description

My voice is flexible depending upon the project:

-- Conversational, confident and professional for E-learning, training or business-oriented projects.
-- Friendly, upbeat and fun for commercials.
-- Thoughtful and distinctive for audiobooks.

I am diligent about deadlines and willing with work with any client until he or she is completely satisfied with the finished product.

I'm an entertainment journalist and a musician, so I know how to have fun and sound fun, but can also be serious and thoughtful when necessary.

I have a bachelor's degree in mass communication -- where I took several broadcasting and speech classes -- and a master's degree in English, so I am also quite comfortable with academic-related projects.

I've learned media production and the finer points of voice work recording production from a team of radio and recording studio professionals and am adept in the latest version of Audition.
