Voicing impressions and characters is one of my favorite things to do, as it requires truly stepping outside of the norm and making another person or character come to life. And when it’s asked of me…AND the producers are thrilled with the performance, what a rush!
That’s exactly what happened in the case of “The Quiet Philanthropist: The Edith Gaylord Story”, a historical documentary, directed by the talented Bryan Beasley, and premiering at the deadCenter Film Festival in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on June 13th, 2014.

Edith was a ground-breaking journalist in the 1940’s helping to break through the glass ceiling of the male dominated newspaper business. Later in life, Edith devoted herself to philanthropy, anonymously giving millions away to the arts and the downtrodden.”
