I am an Audible-Approved audiobook narrator, voiceover artist, and professional actress with an MA in classical theatre from New York University. My theatrical background provides me with a great facility for expression, creating characters, and a variety of accents. I have performed on stages throughout Southern California and been associated with some of Los Angeles’ most prominent theatre companies, including The Will Geer Theatricum, The Actors’ Gang, and City Garage. I honor literature immensely and love bringing words to life.
My professional post-production experience in film and broadcast television greatly facilitate the production element required to fully produce and master professional audiobooks. I worked as a story editor and assistant editor on MTV’s Made, Bravo’s The It Factor, and VH1’s Totally Obsessed. I have also shot and edited two short documentary films (viewable on my website The Bohemian Heart).
My state-of-the-art studio, Femme Vocale, delivers the highest-quality audio, with latest generation iMac, Focusrite Scarlett audio interface, Pro Tools 10, Audio Technica 2035 large diaphragm studio condenser cardioid mic, Waves plugin suite, and iZotope RX.
My clients include authors, agents, audiobook production houses, and publishers—among them Audible Studios, Bee Audio, New York Times bestselling author Joan Wester Anderson, New York Times and USA Today bestselling mystery/thriller author Cheryl Bradshaw, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Ava Lore, bestselling mystery writer Jo Dereske, and award-winning Amazon #1 bestseller Dr. Jennifer Howard.
You might not know it to look at me, but as a second-degree black belt, former second mate and forklift driver, I’ve got a mean left hook and can drink just about any sailor under the table. But the real secret of my success is my little pooch (and production assistant), Howlin’ Jay Hampton, who makes my world a vastly better place.
Audiobook narration and production is a natural for me, the perfect amalgam of my creative talents.
I am a member of the APA (Audio Publishers Association).
