I am a big fan of the Golden Age of Radio (1920s-1950s). One of the great, freeing things about voice acting is that you're not locked into your physical attributes. It's all about your acting talent and your skill in manipulating your voice.
One of my role models is actress Virginia Gregg, who could voice any character from young to old, high society to scullery cook, innocent to femme fatale, and everything in between including a wide array of accents. Although she never held an iconic lead role, as a character actress she was in high demand and was never out of work.
Although I am relatively new to voice acting (began my VA "journey" in 2017), my background in performance is genetic. A grandchild of Vaudevillians and daughter of touring theatre has imbued me with a love of acting which began during my very first taste of the stage when I was five years old. Since then, I have experienced the world of performance in grade school, high school, and college productions as well as community theatre. I played leads in productions of The Foreigner, Who Murdered Marsha, and No More Homework; and was among the support/ensemble casts for Amadeus, Fiddler on the Roof, Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Fortinbras.
I enjoyed two semi-professional film jobs on the Children's Television Workshop program "Mathnet" as an extra in the episodes "The Case of the Un-Natural" and "The Calpurnian Kugel Caper."
As a voice actress, I have performed in audio/motion comics, machinimas, and audio dramas; and I have narrated audio books and audio dramas. My voice has also been used in gaming mods for the popular video game "Fallout." In the corporate environment, I have provided narration and instruction for human resource training programs. I have included a sampling of some of my favorite projects on this page.
