Voice Over

Directing, engineering, performing and teaching in the widely flung world of voice over has transformed my life: artistically, philosophically, ethically. The pursuit and practice is all about balancing specificity and flexibility, technical precision and emotional honesty, translation and creation. It is also very fun.

A LITTLE BACKGROUND

In 2009, I was directing a play at The Ontological in St. Mark’s Church and managing the basement at The Strand Bookstore. An actor in the show, who was also an excellent audiobook narrator said, “Wait a second… You love books and you direct theater. You should direct audiobooks!”
I said – “Whaaaaaaaaa?! That is a job?!”

Several interviews and a deep dive into learning ProTools later…

2009-2019: DECADE ONE

I have directed and engineered hundreds of audiobooks, including How Music Works, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Water Castle, Leaving the Sea, Following Christopher Creed, Wild Boys and many more.

I have narrated (sometimes under a pseudonym…) hundreds of audiobooks, including The Coal Elf, The Rise of Sturd, Judge’s Girls and many books about dinosaurs.

I have directed and engineered a variety of cartoons, including much of seasons 18 and 19 of Pokemon, as well as the film, Hoopa and the Clash of Ages.

I directed and engineered The Winx Club Season 7, World of Winx, Robocar Poli, Denver: The Last Dinosaur, Mily: Miss Questions, The Funny Little Bugs and may other adorable dubs.

I was the voice of Pokemon XYZ‘s Team Flare baddie, Aliana, a few magical beings in The Winx Club and Mrs. Highsmith in Taffy.
