I am a New York City based stage, screen, and voiceover actress with a voice described as rich velvet. Originally hailing from Atlanta, I'm a proud member of both SAG-AFTRA & AEA. I have an MFA from West Virginia University, BFA from NYU Tisch, and training from The British American Dramatic Academy.

I’ve performed Off Broadway, along with select television credits: Upcoming: THE GOOD FIGHT (PARAMOUNT), INSECURE (HBO), AMAZON PRIME's #LOVEMYROOMIE, and NBC's 30 ROCK. UPCOMING: the highly anticipated film, THE COLOR PURPLE MUSICAL.

As a narrator, I've completed romance titles for Nubian Audio, Alexandria House and Christina C. Jones. I performed over twenty voices for Macmillan Audio’s Science Fiction/Fantasy title, "Sweep of Stars" and I am currently recording the YA/Sci Fi novel, "NUBIA: THE AWAKENING," by Omar Epps and Clarence A. Haynes for Penguin Randomhouse. In particular, my more than 10 years of experience as a stand up comedian have given me a solid funny bone, and made me a sucker for romantic comedies.

As a kid I always looked forward to earning that cool holographic button and personal pan pizza every ten books (Oh no, did I just date myself?!?!). The aftermath is my love of all things fiction, especially mysteries (love, love!l). I’ve narrated YA, Fantasy/Sci-Fi, and Romance.

But my greatest achievement has been mentoring inner city youth during my nine years of combined experience in the nonprofit and higher education sectors. I hold a graduate degree in Public Administration with certification in Nonprofit Management, expertise in grant writing, fundraising, program management, leadership, arts education and special events. As a result, some of my nonfiction interests include youth development, women's empowerment, and social justice.

I can’t wait to narrate your next book!
