A little about me
I love storytelling, plain and simple. Narrating a great story, and bringing all of the fascinating characters to life is my dream job. I am always up for a challenge, and because I have extensive work in theater, I am a great collaborator on projects. I have worked on audiobooks for all different genres, and have enjoyed them all equally. — Melinda
I am a professionally-trained stage actor that began my career in New York City. Credits include The New York Shakespeare Festival, Humana Festival, E.S.T., Naked Angels, Atlantic Theater Co., and Summer Play Festival. I believe it is my love of theater that has helped me to transition to audiobooks seamlessly.
Perhaps you have seen me. Film work includes Choke, The Limbo Room, Urban Legend, Sarah's Key, and Three Windows. Television credits include: House of Lies, Damages (recurring), multiple episodes of Law & Order, Spin City, All My Children and Ed.
