Dawn 4209 b smI am so blessed to be able to do the work that I love.  I have been performing since grade school (earlier if you count the free concerts I gave on the streets and in the parks for anyone who would listen, whether they wanted to or not!).  Starting with singing and then moving into stage acting, then to film and finally to voice over, I now do it all.  My natural speech is a neutral, American accent.  My voice has a deep timbre that has been described as rich, warm, smooth, soothing, calming, sultry, confident and comforting.

My commercial work is exceptional but my true love and areas of specialization are audiobooks, narration, and character work.  I have always had a special place in my heart for books, reading and learning.  With my love of story, it is only natural that I find myself in a place where I assist people in “unfolding their stories” to the world.  My years of acting, singing and voice over training enable me to bring your characters and their stories to life.  I have a keen interest in and aptitude for accents and dialects and I am constantly adding to my repertoire of unique and diverse characters.

I have always been a big believer in education.  Holding an undergraduate degree in Petroleum Land Management, along with Bachelor of Laws and Masters of Laws degrees, I have brought my love of learning into the world of voice over.  I have studied stage acting since my teens, singing and piano since grade school, and film for over 15 years.  In addition, I have studied most of the voice over genres (from commercial to animation to video games to telephony to audiobooks) with some of the best instructors in North America.  The list of voice over coaches I have worked with includes:
