As a voice coach, you will never hear me say the words “you’re not getting it”. I consider it my mission to try different approaches, techniques, and exercises until something clicks. My coaching style involves a lot of dialogue between teacher and student, and I like to use my sense of humor to keep things light and fun, even as I challenge you to go further than you thought possible. When it comes to animation, cartoons, children's e-learning, and video games, I am very grateful to have had experience on both sides of the window. On the production side, I served as voice director and talent supervisor for the Emmy Award-winning PBS cartoon, "WordWorld". I’ve also voice directed various games and toys for The Backyardigans, Go, Diego, Go!, Dora the Explorer, as well as numerous children’s audio books for Scholastic. As Head of the VO Department at Animation Collective, I oversaw the records and casting of nine shows produced for Nickelodeon, Nicktoons, Cartoon Network, and AOL kids. My TV production career started on the show "Blue's Clues", where I won my very first VO role—that of a talking mailbox! As talent, I have narrated projects for Blackberry, Cincinnati Bell, Harrah’s, Hilton, Taximagic, Petflow, WatchDox, Twilio, Green Nissan, Slendertone and Howcast.com among others. For more than three years, I have been the main voice of the award-winning Kognito Interactive, which creates web-based e-learning simulations for various clients including Starwood Hotels, Rutgers, CUNY, Baruch, Fuji Film and the Veteran’s Association of NY/NJ. I graduated from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Drama, and also trained in improv through Second City. As a live performer, I have four years of stand-up, and eight years of sketch comedy under my belt. I moved to the City of Angels in 2010, and have had a great time heading up Edge Studio’s LA studio! ...
