Erin's work as an audiobook narrator has been described as "sassy", "smart", "dynamic", "rich", and "vulnerable". Her over 40 years of acting paves the way to a deep, emotional connection with her text while the unique (some might say "atypical for a narrator") quality of her voice differentiates her sound. She plays both traditional heroes and more unconventional characters with the same devotion to examining each individual and finding what makes them tick.
Erin is the owner and operator of deWord Audio located in lovely Nyack, NY, just 27 miles from New York City. deWord specializes in audio description, audio book narration, and voice work for all kinds of media. With a small stable of professional voice actors, deWord collaborates with clients to bring their imagined projects to life.
Past projects include public service announcements, educational video narration, company answering machines, animated characters, and promotional audio.
The studio is a box within a box equipped with a Neumann TLM 102, (sometimes a Blue Spark XLR), Scarlett 2i2, Mac Mini, Reaper, Studio One, RX6, and Audacity.
Erin has had the on-going good fortune to study audiobook narration with Paul Alan Ruben. She has also studied narration with Eliza Foss, Jayme Mattler, PJ Ochlan, and Carol Monda and has studied Audio Description with Joel Snyder and the Kennedy Center Leadership Exchange in Arts and Disability. Erin has also taken a Video Game Voice Over intensive with Melanie Ehrlich (co-presented by Dom Vega and Than Bryan of Avalanche).
