Hi there! I'd love to help you with your self-tape or rehearsal! Need a partner? I'm your girl!
Let me know how I can help: whether it's text analysis, repetition, or just having fun making choices with NO fear or judgement, I'm happy to help get the best take, so you book your job.
I speak with a Standard American accent, but I'm from Kentucky and can help you NAIL your Southern dialect!
Since last year, I stepped into voice over and audiobook narration full time. As an actor, writer, educator and program creator, I've worked with the Frazier History Museum, Commonwealth Theatre Center, Kentucky Shakespeare, Actors Theatre of Louisville, and Seattle Shakespeare Company over the last 14 years. Recent film work includes “Heartland” and “Perception.” I have a BFA in Theater with an emphasis in Original Works from Cornish College of the Arts.
Recent stuff: I recently coached with Lori Alan, and took VoiceTrax West's animation intensive this spring which was a lot of fun. Right now I'm working on 3 YA fantasy & sci-fi novels and doing some VO commercial work, and just helped shoot a Woodford Reserve commercial.
I'm new to WeAudition and would appreciate a review in return! I never expect payment but tips are awesome! My Venmo is @Melinda-Beck-1

I believe we are collectively craving stories that inspire kindness and stimulate our imagination as the world finds a new normal. We are seeking a deeper connection and we’re tired of being sold to. After many years as an actor, educator, and working for cultural nonprofits in two cities, the spark that kept me going was connecting with audiences and artists through quality performances, encouraging discoveries and amazing potential in my students, and finding the magic in the stories I tell. Every story has a heart and soul, and it’s my job to honor it.
Between stepping in front of a camera to stepping behind a mic, I believe the best stories are the ones that inspire us and remind us of the magic in ordinary life that we so often forget to notice.
