Fact: Jen is short for Jensen.

I am an On camera / Voiceover / Theater-trained actress based in Brooklyn.

Are you tired of hearing that salesy “radio voice”?

Are you done with narrators who put your profits to sleep?

Is that A.I. voice making you question the life of your message?

FACT: you’ve come to the right place.

My voice is picked for bringing a real, fresh juicy slice of life to every project. As youthful as I sound, my talent has been ripened through extensive education, training, work and life experience, and a driven dedication to your story’s sweet success.

I’ve played badass sprites, fairies, demure damsels, bone-chilling bad guys, and dueled with Shakespeare’s speeches. I impersonate the singing voice of Gwen Stefani. I’ve sung Adele, Bruce Springsteen, Stephen Sondheim, and Mozart. Recently, I voiced a ninja for a video game. Let’s just say I’m not your average one-trick Millennial pony. I’m a band of horses with unbridled versatility. With over 15 years of theatrical experience, a background in singing and movement, and my Master of Fine Arts in Acting, my voiceovers are inimitable.

If you want snark, attitude, sassy pants, or bubbly, and cheerful, I’m your girl. If you want an educated professional with the uppity, starched blouse and pencil skirt, or the collegiate nanny with yoga hippie vibes, please contact me.

I am passionate for telling stories, and more than that, I love stepping and stretching into new roles to tell the stories that haven’t been told. I hope yours is next!

When not in front of the mic, or being a goof on camera, I go for long walks, have coffee with friends, play video games, and write music with my favorite person: my math teacher hubby. We live in Brooklyn with our growing plant babies.
