Who knew voiceovers would complete me?

Debbie Irwin Defined….

My background is art and business. Now my art is my business.

Originally from Chicago, I've lived in Rome, Mexico City, Providence and for many years now, the Big Apple.

Starting as a theatre actress, then managing events at The Guggenheim Museum, I later worked as a stockbroker on Wall Street…. and switched to ‘Sesame Street,’ when I decided to stay home and raise three kids.

A decade ago I found a new outlet for an old passion—acting. So I took my stage skills and transformed them into studio skills, traveling the world from my recording booth in NYC, voicing projects for clients like eBay, Oracle, Citibank and The Smithsonian.

My sound is intelligent and elegant, charismatic and compelling. I'm responsive, efficient, client-focused and.... I play well with others. Call me balanced and mature-- like a fine wine. And who doesn't like a fine wine?

So, I'm living my dream, I just didn't know it would look like this.
