When you finally have the script, the one you’ve worked so hard on, that you’ve revised a million times, you need the right person to tell the story the right way. That’s what I do. I transform words into messages & the mundane into the magical for producers and creatives of all types. My voice has built-in credibility so I can tell your story naturally. In two languages.
Smart. Powerful. Quietly confident. (sm)
I’m a regular narrator for Smithsonian Channel TV programming, along with other documentary narration and also tell stories for brands, such as Daimler, Intel, Philips Healthcare, AstraZeneca and others. My voice has traveled to European Parliament, to NYC’s One World Trade Center, to the Nobel Museum, to Sub-Saharan Africa, to Outer - and Inner - Space… just to name a few. Explained how to apply for disaster relief, how to get health care . how to use technology - and how art and science meet. Instructed on business best practices, on the use of medical devices, on IT solutions and on mitigating risk. I've acted in radio dramas, told stories of history, of science, of nature and of the arts. And I've told tales of terror, of inspiration, of hope … and of confidence.
I’ve received 4 MCA-I awards and was nominated for a SOVAS Voice Arts award for voiceover. And I’ve voiced Cannes Dolphin and Telly Award winners.
I also help union members find non-union work that can legitimately be done, without being in violation or choosing Fi-Core. Yes, that's absolutely possible. And completely above board. Ask me how.
The witch stole my broom in Oz, The Great and Powerful. I have a massive collection of cowboy boots. And I'm an unapologetic native New Yorker.
Anthem reads to evil queens, medical to Nahuatl, science to natural history and from crime…to the divine®
