Character Specialist; Friendly, personable, evil
My "neutral" tone of voice can be described as friendly and personable, ideal for commercial spots or anything requiring a personal touch. My narrative work typically comes off as confident and knowledgeable, and somewhat "bookish" and intellectual.

My Voice Experience
I have received extensive training in traditional acting and have taken part in several local productions and been generally well-received for my range of characterization and emotive ability.
I've lent my voice to numerous video games, including Outlands 2 and Heroes of Newerth.
For a long time I worked as an IT Help Desk technician for Cubic Defense Applications, and as a result of my countless hours spent on the phone, have earned much praise for the friendliness and professionalism I convey. I was also the voice over talent for video Windows tutorials produced by the IT Department at Cubic, in which I guide users through the ins and outs of Windows as a gruff but generally helpful pirate.
Though I'm no longer an employee of Cubic, I continue to provide my services to them for their Monday Morning Minute, a weekly newsletter of sorts.
I've trained under several prominent talents in the industry, including James Alburger and Penny Abshire.
I've taken (and excelled in) advanced acting classes throughout middle school, high school, and college, and participated in numerous summer programs as well.
I have a B.A. in Multimedia Arts from San Diego State University.
My Studio Equipment
Shure PG42 Condenser Microphone with pop filter
MBox (3rd generation) with Pro Tools LE
I have extensive knowledge of computers, with ten years of experience as an IT Help Desk technician.
I'm a voracious reader, with an insatiable interest in, and generalized knowledge of, history, art, language and literature. I often read to myself aloud, and feel this has given me a good "feel" for how text is best conveyed through the spoken word.
I'm also an avid video gamer, and am woefully aware of how much substandard voice quality there is to be found in many video games. I know what works and what doesn't!
