Karen-Eileen is VO2GoGo’s Instructor based in Florida, and leads one of our monthly VO2GoGo live Zoom workouts for VO students around the world.
VO was Karen-Eileen’s first creative love: while other kiddies played in the fresh air and sunshine, she kidnapped her baby brother and forced him to co-create radio dramas. Karen-Eileen brings big love–and the experience of 100s of voice over roles (in multiple languages)–to her teaching/coaching experience.
And Karen’s not only an instructor, she’s one of VO2GoGo’s Featured Talent.
A working on-camera actress who can be seen on screens large and small, Karen-Eileen is most well know to television audiences from her two seasons on the hit STARZ Original Drama MAGIC CITY, as sassy-tough 1959 New York dame Florence. Other fave TV roles include a recurring guest-star as snark-fest-of-a-lawyer Joanne Riley on A & E’s THE GLADES, and sparring with lovely Larry David on HBO’s CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM. On film, Karen-Eileen stars in the independent comedy feature A FREE BIRD, as Southern hurricane-in-a-jar Tammy…and has been fortunate to create (and improvise!) roles in numerous studio and independent feature films. On stage, Karen-Eileen was part of the L.A. Film Festival’s ground-breaking “Page-to-Stage” project, highlighting a play on its journey to becoming a feature film, as singing Tupperware Goddess Evelyn in the Zephyr Theatre’s THE POSSESSION OF MRS. JONES. She also produced her one-woman-show-in-progress LIFECAB! at The Whitefire Theatre in Studio City.
In the VO world, Karen-Eileen brings several woman to life in the Rockstar Games/Take-Two Interactive smash, GRAND THEFT AUTO V.
