So I have a warm, rich and playful female voice. It calms people down. It sounds like comfort, like happiness, like perspective. As a probation officer, I could get my probationers to do anything they needed to do. As a community college instructor, I made 4k students embrace their inner scholar--you can ask 'em. I sound like I know what I'm talking about, and way more importantly, like I care, because I do. And I love acting, been doing it since I was 13. So give me a character, a situation, an emotion and I'll bloom it right into people's hearts. Here's the boilerplate:

It was 1976 in the Great Smoky Mountains. I was five. My babysitter heard about auditions on the radio to be in the Bicentennial Parade. She dressed me up in my Little House on the Prairie costume and off we went. I sang Yankee Doodle Dandy, and was able to lead the parade. One year later the public address system at a school function croaked with a large audience all set up in the gymnasium. A teacher walked onto the stage, put her hand to her forehead and said, "Where's Kae Denino?" I came up and entertained the crowd with Ladies and Gentlespoons, on Tuesday, the day after Thursday, there will be a Ladies meeting, for Men only...
Since then, it's been voiceover work, theatre, speech and debate, poetry readings, emceeing events, public speaking about human trafficking, corporate training and now here, in my sleek studio, all ready to work with you.
In other news I’ve saved three people’s lives, can cook darn near anything and have wild, exuberant twins. In my spare time I fight human trafficking. I have never missed a deadline in my life.
I thank my lucky stars for lots of help from J Michael Collins, Hillary Huber, Eric Martin, Lisa Biggs and Ron Allan. Have studied great voices my whole life: teachers, politicians, comedians, and most of all The Muppets.
