Prepare to take your career to the next level
If you're serious about working internationally, then it's time find your voice in English.
Schedule your free 30 minute introductory consultation to get to know each other, discuss your specific needs and determine the right fit.
American English accent reduction and consistency, pronunciation and intonation, text analysis and interpretation, tone of voice, phrasing and vocalization, and whatever else it takes to help you feel confident in English.
For all professional environments: on-camera (film, television, on-line), live (stage, events, interviews) or studio (music recording, radio or voiceover).
My focus is to help you find your own voice in English. Giving you the flexibility to develop your skills and expand your professional opportunities.
Gaining the proficiency to be comfortable and free enough to act or perform in a foreign language, is a craft that shouldn't be underestimated. It can definitely be learned and developed, as long as you’re willing to put in the time, work and attitude.
But most important is maintaining your authenticity when you speak. You don’t want to sound like an impersonator, or allow the language to become a facade or barrier to your genuineness as a performer.
I understand that everyone has their own unique way of learning and embracing new techniques. My approach is personal and result-oriented. Although I’ve developed a systematic process - from sharpening listening skills to physical placement and even a touch of musicality - my approach is flexible. I draw from a variety of methods and tools, specifically designed to each individual.
Read about the variety of English language support services I provide during the preparation and production phases on international feature films, television, theater, and music productions, etc. including translation checks, (pre-)casting language consultation, off-set preparation with actors, and on-set or in-studio dialogue coaching and support.
