I’m a San Francisco-based voice actor who stumbled upon the world of voiceover by pure accident when I was introduced to my first agent by a friend. While chatting, the agent asked me, “Have you ever considered doing voiceover work?” That was the question that started it all … and I have never looked back. This wonderful voice-acting career found me, and I’m so grateful it did!
I’ve been lucky enough to book work steadily since I began. I have lent my voice to more commercials than I can count, for clients such as Nike, Honda, Quaker Oats, AT&T, Intel, Apple, Cricket Wireless, Linked In, Kaiser Permanente, Nature Made, Wells Fargo, Clorox, Hilton and Ford to name just a handful.
In addition to voicing many national campaigns and commercials for TV and radio, you may have heard my voice on TV promos, narrations for projects of every description, characters, museum audio tours and even on automated phone systems for national corporations.
The words I hear most often to describe my voice are real, authentic, trustworthy, warm and relatable. However, clients often take advantage of my authoritative voice when they need gravitas and “cut-through” to complement their vision.
But my creative career didn’t begin with voiceover. After University, I started in Venice, Italy at the Collezione Peggy Guggenheim and later doing installations in Genoa, Italy. Following that, I worked on various feature films with high-profile filmmakers such as Tim Burton, Rick Baker and Henry Sellick. I then found my way to Manchester, England where I worked for the award-winning animation studio Mackinnon and Saunders. Once back in the States, I started my own modern art business, which eventually led me to that fateful meeting with my first agent and the world of voiceover. And that is where I plan to stay.
Voiceover is my passion. I would be honored to be your voice and tell your story …
