Off-Camera Voice Over Casting & Direction

Tell me what you want to hear…and I’ll find it!

 

As a professional singer/musician, voice over actor and Walla Loop Group supervisor, my ear has become progressively tuned to the needs of a scene, be it for a TV series, a TV movie, feature film or video game. I draw from an impressive roster of multi-faceted, multi-lingual union and non-union actors and have nurtured close relationships with some of the top talent agents in Vancouver. Looking for an authentic accent or language? Leave it to me. Need a kick-ass singer? I’ve literally trained hundreds! How about a Walla Loop Group? Oh… I can do that too.

 

Select past and current shows/clients include: EA Games, Julie & The Phantoms (NETFLIX), Strange Magic (Disney/Lucas), MOTIVE (CTV), Snowpiercer (NETFLIX), Virgin River (NETFLIX), Cedar Cove (Hallmark), Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (NETFLIX), Travelers (NETFLIX), Ice (Entertainment Partners), Some Assembly Required (YTV), Arctic Air (CBC), Strange Empire (CBC), Syfy, Disney, Air Bud Entertainment and feature films for Universal, WWE, Summit Entertainment and Lions Gate Films.

COACHING

Singing & Performance Coaching

Whether coaching performers for audition preparation, in-studio voice over, live theatrical performance or on-set, communicating openly and specifically is integral to the success and final outcome. Each voice, each body and each actor is unique. It is my job to acknowledge and identify the performer’s strengths and to integrate those strengths into the demands of the song, the text or the scene. My students have gone on to enjoy busy careers in musical theatre, film/TV, composition, voice over, cruise ship work and more. They are spread out all over the globe in New York, Toronto, Paris and right here at home in Vancouver, British Columbia.

DIRECTING

Theatre Directing

My wide-ranging experience as a voice artist and theatre performer has allowed me to shift smoothly into directing for live theatre. In 2016, I embarked on a theatre directing intensive with Karen Kohlhaas of The Atlantic Theatre School in NYC, in an effort to learn more about the practical application and process of directing live theatre. Since returning, I have directed many live theatre shows including my most recent shows, “7 Stories” (Morris Panych), “It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play” (Joe Landry) and “9 to 5: The Musical” (Dolly Parton/ Patricia Resnick). I continue to be fascinated by the complex nature of human relationship dynamics and how these are navigated and play out through script and song.
