My socks never match...ever. I'm not even sure I own a matching pair.
A karaoke machine was my first love. I was about ten years old and man did I sound just as good as Whitney Houston :)! I wouldn’t just sing badly into it, I would talk. . . a lot. I loved how alien my own voice sounded coming through those speakers, plus my cat really liked the echo effect. My parents would say “think before you speak!' Instead of controlling it, I decided to channel it.
First with school choir, then writing, through the radio, and now voiceover. In radio I learned audio editing, voiceover, and of course, how to clean a carte machine but from then on, every job I took was to support my voiceover habit.
After college, I worked in country and rock radio in production and programming. I was a television traffic reporter, audio editor at an on-hold message company, and even worked at an ad agency startup. Eventually, I landed in Twin Falls, Idaho on a classic rock station. My plan was to stay for two years and then move on to a larger market. However, I was introduced to 'this guy', a fish farmer. I wasn’t interested. He was pretty persistent and kept asking me out on dates. Eventually, I caved and I married my fish farmer stalker. Two kids later, I’m still in Idaho.
If you're still with me, this website is like a scrapbook of my life. Each image represents a different part of me and tells you something about my story. Like my favorite coffee mug.
I left broadcasting for higher education and worked at the College of Southern Idaho, in Admissions and Public Information. All the while I was building my voice over business into a self-sustaining company. So here I am. A real talker. I'm a mom, a black belt in Isshinryu Karate. Florida is home but now, so is Idaho. I drink craft beer. I'm a Tomboy who loves rollercoasters and ALL the football - NFL, college, fantasy, even soccer. My favorite color is green. All I need is a microphone and my boys. If you like my work give me a good ol' pat on the back. But no hugs. I'm not a hugger.
Hire me as your voiceover for a similar sound to Jennifer Lawrence, Laura Prepon, Tina Fey, Jodie Foster, Anna Faris, Amy Schumer or Ellen Degeneres. Fun, fast, easy-going authentic, and strong.
