My Self-Produced Projects

I'm a big picture person. I'm always curious how something is done from end-to-end, and I figured since I started my career as a graphic designer, why not hop back on that creative horse and learn post production. My curiosity drives me to learn and become better at my craft.

Wellness Spot

I wanted to test my ability to mix voice with background music. Ta da! Not bad for my first attempt. My intent was to add music but not drown out the spoken message.

Genre: psa, explainer


My first self-produced video project for a networking startup. During this exercise, I sliced and diced the pre-recorded videos, without audio, to sync with a professional voice over that I provided.

Genre: how-to, explainer


Goofing Around with a Sultry Voice

Okay, I have to admit that I've always been scared of my sultry voice, but I've been having fun since getting more comfortable with it. Plus, my voice-over coach (Jan Haley-Soule) says that I'm good at these types of reads. Tee hee! Oh yeah, I'm also a huge fan of cheesy retro advertisement. So here's one where I was goofing around with both. My intent was to draw out the cheesiness of the original advertisement with the music. I had lots of choices in music, but I think I nailed it with this one!!

Genre: erotica, advertisement
