Bio: I am a professional voice talent, who brings skill and confidence to every project. My voiceover experience includes commercials, audiobooks, eLearning, explainer videos, telephony, and corporate narration. I work from my home studio in NJ, which is equipped with Source Connect Standard and ipDTL. My vocal attributes — trustworthy, educated, engaging, and believable — create an air of “warmth with wisdom”.
I am very active in supporting and volunteering at the JBI Library (established in 1931 as the Jewish Braille Institute), and Learning Ally in NYC. I set time aside to record books for those who are visually impaired and educationally challenged, so they can enjoy published works of art. I am also a member of The Online Stage, a volunteer collective of narrators and actors who create high-quality productions of classic dramatic works in audio format.
Having graduated Magna Cum Laude from Montclair State University (2001) with a BS in Finance, I am well-versed in business jargon, having worked for more than 25 years in various industries — publishing, banking, pharma. I also taught elementary school, so engaging an audience, whatever their age, is second nature to me.
