Margit (rhymes with target) is a Danish, Swedish and Norwegian variant of Margaret.
I was named after my great aunt who lived in Bergen, Norway.
When I was a young girl (freezing in Michigan), all I wanted to be when I grew up was an animator for Disney. I was told in 2nd grade, that drawing was not my strong suite. My dream of working for Disney was over at 8 years of age. Fast forward to 2007 when I was hired as the Playhouse Disney Channel, promo announcer. Wow full circle, voicing promos for Disney cartoons that I could never draw. My Disney VO collaboration continued, voicing live shows and rides at Walt Disney World, Disney California Adventure and Disneyland.
I graduated from Michigan State University with a dual degree in theatre and telecommunications. After college I moved to Chicago (even more freezing then Michigan) where I studied and performed improv with The Second City and Improv Olympics (IO), and honed my voice over skills. I bring a playfully comedic freshness, honesty and warmth to my VO work. Clients like my versatility in that I can add and take out the rasp in my voice, as well as the ability to sound carefree and youthful or bring a mature gravitas to the copy. I am fun, creative and professional and enjoy collaborating with clients. I have a designated home studio with ISDN, Source Connect and phone patch capabilities that I work out of fulltime.
I have had the great pleasure of voicing countless commercials, promos, narration, animation, radio imaging, video games and political ads in the last 21years. I have been heard on just about every network, most cable stations and all over the radio. Some of my longest running commercial campaigns have been for Build a Bear Workshop, Friskies, Jenny Craig, Barbie, Ocean Spray and Serta.
I live in Pasadena California with my husband, two kids, dog and 6 fish, and I am not freezing any more. Matter of fact, I have lost my Midwestern “weather” backbone. I have been known to wear a hat and mittens when the temperature dips down to a very cool 60 degrees.
