From pre-teens to wizened protagonists, from snarky to heartfelt narrators, I love voicing characters who wield spells, blasters, data, or vulnerability to create better worlds. I’m drawn to middle school, YA, fantasy, sci-fi, thriller, literary fiction, and self-help. I have recorded picture books, non-fiction, and graphic novels for Learning Ally, and you can find my work in Audible under my pseudonym Cassandra Alling. I was 1st Runner Up in the 2022 Rone Audiobook Awards.

My voice is warm, soothing, textured, versatile, and articulate, honed teaching college freshman, answering phones, and performing on Off-Off-Off Broadway stages including LaMama, HERE Arts Center, the Clark Studio Theater at Lincoln Center, and the Park Avenue Armory. With my background in new play dramaturgy, I narrate with trust in a writer’s vision, a probing and curiosity-driven close read, and a deep connection to story and scene structure. As a Fulbright scholar, Danes showed me how to perform at eye level, not looking down on but alongside young audiences.

I’ve worked with Elise Arsenault and have taken classes with Anna Garduno, Paul Liberti, Amanda Quaid, Nic Redman, Voice Actors of NYC, and the Linklater Center for Voice and Language. I am a member of APA.
