After getting my start as a child actor in San Diego, California, I spent seven years gaining business experience as the owner of a retail store before selling the company to begin Tawny Voice – an audio and entertainment company. ​

As an actor with over 25 years of experience, a professional voice-over artist, and an experienced business owner, I currently train the voice artists of tomorrow and manage the voice actors of today. Learn More Here

I’m also the creator of the Dirty Bits Podcast with my late husband and business partner George Platis. After he passed away on November 8, 2019, in our home, I coped with the trauma by turning our podcast into the show now known as Death Is Hilarious. The sarcastically titled podcast explores how I use comedy to cope with grief, trauma, and loss with the person who set me up with George, Sam Peterson.

Picture of Sam Peterson in the right half of a broken heart shape. They are wearing gold rimmed glasses and a brown sweater. They are smiling slightly. The outline of the shape is aqua in color.

I am an alien from outer space figuring out how to be a person. And I think everyone feels like that sometimes.

After getting my Computing & the Arts degree from UCSD, I spent a decade as an ADHD-preneur. This gave me mad skills in many life areas.

Above all, I’m a storyteller. I want to give my audience metaphors, little footholds to make the next steps mentally as we all sort out our own narratives. I am naive enough to like Earth, but real enough to see it has a lot of problems. I do my small part to help.
