As a little girl growing up in Johannesburg, Carly's grandpa instilled in her a love for performing as he played jazz standards on his double bass.
Not long after immigrating to the US, Carly was accepted to the prestigious Orange County High School of the Arts, where she sharpened her skills in the musical theatre dept. She then graduated from the rigorous BFA program at Cal State Fullerton after performing with iconic musical acts such as Stevie Nicks, Chicago & Carol Channing.
As a fellow sultry alto, she was inspired to venture into the voice-over world by mentor & Broadway star Susan Egan, voice of Megara in Disney's Hercules & Lin in Miyazaki's Spirited Away. On her first v/o audition she booked the gig, an in house spot for Banana Republic. Since then Carly’s recorded spots on all ends of the commercial sprectrum; from Hasbro toys to Playboy Fragrances.
Carly is currently living and performing in NYC, and is obsessed with her cozy, diverse neighborhood in Queens.
