Listen to my work!
I record with Pro-Tools ‘punch and roll’ recording in my home based studio in Los Angeles using a Neumann TLM-103 microphone with pop-filter, in a studio-room treated with ClearSonic SORBER Baffles. I can provide full production from narration to editing and mastering.
I will do my absolute best to bring your book to life! I strive to understand the material and intimately connect with the listener to keep them engaged and always entertained.
I have always loved reading aloud. Ever since I can remember I would be the first one with their hand in the air when it was time to read in school. I love reading bedtime stories to my son. When I realized this was actually a job, I was like, “Where do I sign up?”
I began narrating audiobooks as a way to stay busy between acting auditions but it quickly became my passion. I love that I can be the hero, or the villain, or so many different kinds of characters and bring a story to life. I also love reading informational material in a way that makes it engaging.
what else do you do?
I’m an introvert so I’m not big on social events but I love spending time with family, coaching my son’s baseball, basketball & soccer games, walking my two yorkies Clark & Alfredo, going to the movies, binging on tv shows, gardening and cooking anything gluten-free! I’m a painter and artist and am very handy (I own all the tools in the family). I love fashion and I’m a sucker for pretty dresses and hats. I’m slowly learning to make my own gluten free pasta. I love organizing, aka Marie Kondo-ing my home, cleaning (call me crazy), and decorating. I love mid-century furniture and architecture! I love Harry Potter & Sherlock Holmes, Joseph Campbell, Malcolm Gladwell, Brené Brown, Romance Novels, TED talks, and True Crime podcasts.
