I'm a lifelong stage actor who transitioned into voice acting in 2021, but I love it and maybe was supposed to be doing this the whole time! Medium-high to low range pitch and a tendency to lean towards a naturalist approach.

UPDATE 4/25/21 As of today I can only accept paid work unless I specifically audition for your project. This site has been very kind to me so thanks to everyone who has listened to, liked, and/or hired me thus far!

Hi, I'm Diana (she/her/hers), a seasoned stage actor who's been in voice acting for a year, and boy is this fun. I love the idea of trying out characters that look absolutely nothing like me! The roles I am most hired for are maternal figures, femme fatales, reporters, and (niche alert) the evil scientist's assistant.

I mostly do theatre, but during quarantine I have done a ton of virtual theatre, everything from new works to Shakespeare. I have some of my acting work on my YouTube channel and will add more as I go. Learning so much new technology has been challenging, but I'm not above a challenge and challenges open up new opportunities.

Every character has their own voice and I approach my acting that way. If all of my characters sounded exactly like me I feel I wouldn't be much of an actor IMO. 

Looking forward to sharing my voice here and seeing all of the projects!

What DKVoicesVary is looking for

I've worked in many different genres and love them all! CCC has allowed me to stretch my limits and experience in a number of ways and hope to become a full-time professional voice actor. To that effect, I prefer to stick to original and/or licensed works. I also do my best not to cross any gender, racial, or identity boundaries in the name of casting diversity. Lastly, no NSFW situations, please (though I'm fine with swearing). Thanks!

  • @anadryn

    Diana is a truly talented actress both on stage and behind the mic, and a pleasure to work with! She has been instrumental in creating wonderful personal and working relationships within the cast and beyond. Her talent and dedication make her a valuable asset to any team, and I look forward to continued collaboration on Erai's Destiny and any other projects in the future.

  • @fussbudgetjr

    I have been blessed to work with Diana on the audio drama "Erai's Destiny" and I cannot say enough good things about her. She is professional, sincere, and it shows in her performances. We recently discovered we have been cast together in other projects, and I couldn't be happier. I assure you, if you bring her into your project, you will experience the same joy.

  • @hse

    Diana is a very skilled, talented, and hard-working actress. Her fantastic range and experience truly show in the way she handles her work and the way she communicates with fellow team members. Her energy and determination truly bring any project she works on to life, and certainly brings passion to the whole cast. She's a remarkable talent that will take any character she voices into a whole new level!

  • @james-c-taylor

    Holy moly! DK blew us away with her auditions and then blew us further away with her final performance. She also has great comedy instincts, so if you're not afraid of some ad libbing, you're in for a treat. I am trying to scheme ways to have her back again.

    She was professional and accommodating. You would do well to work with her.

    [Note: her episode, episode 2, goes live on 10/19/2021]

  • @dalestrom

    Diana is a phenomenal talent, easily workable and nuanced in her approach to character work. Her voices each feel like I’m talking to the character in question. She’s also snarky, fun, and creative. As part of your cast, or your creative team, Diana will have your back, and may just wind up your star player. 

  • @sammyliscious

    Diana is literally one of the best and most talented VA's I've had in a long time, it's a privilege to have her on the team. She submits her lines quickly and before the deadline, and is overall very friendly and approachable. Thanks for your work, and I hope to have you for our future episodes/projects!
