Headshots & Resume
- I am into devised theatre, improv, social justice, the environment, capoeira, running, camping, venti soy lattes and chocolate.
- As an AAA/Alt-Rock radio DJ a few years back, I used to make drunk college kids crawl around on the floor at live events for t-shirts, concert tickets… and just for fun.
- I am somewhat of an irritation to Toastmasters because I never write out & memorize speeches beforehand. I grab the mic, let my improv instincts take over, and still manage to stay on-point and engaged with the audience.
- I am a real live mom™ with a strong mama-bear streak. I won’t “mom” you, but I really really want to! How about we be friends first?
- I built this website myself. And this one… and others.
- DO NOT stand in front of me at a concert, because my ear-splitting whistle will probably make you go deaf before the sound system will.
Dori has been in the media and marketing business long enough to know exactly what clients need when it comes to an arresting voice over, both on the technical and performance levels. She is consistently energetic, upbeat, and an utter joy to work with. If you’re looking for a bright, authoritative and confident female voice for your next project, look no further!

Dori Taylor tells stories…not just with her voice, but her heart. Sit-back and feel her warm-expertise as she guides you on a journey of discovery and motivates you into action. It was my pleasure to coach Dori and look forward to having her audition for any of my clients – especially those that request an assured, approachable sound sprinkled with a teasing wink of the eye! And her friendliness spills over from her vocal chords into her commitment to offer exceptional service – which eases my burden as a Producer. Dori Does It!
