YES AND...

Tina's professional background in improv and sketch comedy amplified her innate sense of creating Real Yet complex characters vocally, physically, and logically ('If this is true, what else is true?').

 

Tina's youthful energy and timeless soul brings all kinds of stories to life from Middle GradE, YA, and cozy mysteries to fantasy and self-help titles.

  

When she's not narrating, Tina is a "Sparkling Beatnik" in the Empire Revue. Together they write, produce, and present a new sketch show every few months accompanied by a live band. She loves any and all opportunities to make props, dive into her extensive wig collection, and curate the perfect costume/persona for each of her characters. 

 

Tina loves a trivia night. Her special skills include the "name that tune" round and her knowledge of pop culture from the 80's-00's. She is married to an amazing human whom she met while they worked together at a local record store over 20 years ago. Tina also enjoys hamming it up at karaoke, binging reality tv shows, and snuggling with her 3 cats: Hubble, Penelope, and Louise.
