About Me

As you may have noticed from tuning in to the Closeness podcast on www.getcloseness.com, I am also a voice over artist in the San Diego area.  You can book me for your next commercial, spot, promo or legal or medical copy needs.

Currently fluent in English, Italian, Spanish and making strides to deepen my understanding of Russian and French.
