My Voice Experience
My professional experience consists of voicing several characters in the massive, multiplayer online video game, Aion, voice overs for radio spots in the New York/New Jersey area, and I’m the voice of Dok Bloodnikov, a 6-legged space gladiator in the radio-podcast drama, “Cosmic Love”.
I have spent 16 years recording, editing and producing singers and voiceover talent, including myself, for many high-level projects in the audio and music industries. I have sung rock and pop songs, fun character voices for children's songs, and I hosted a podcast about creating music in today's changing entertainment industry.
I have a bachelor's degree in Music Production & Engineering from Berklee College of Music.
I studied with renowned vocal coach, Seth Riggs, and voice over coach, Marc Cashman.
I have worked professionally as a voice over producer/editor on projects with major VO talent, and I have written/performed many conversational podcast scripts. I have a keen sense of wording/grammar usage for what is expected by voice overs in today's market to keep copy sounding fluid and interesting.
Voice over isn't just a job for me, it's a passion. I am constantly working to improve my character voices, and listening to voice over artists and comedians to improve my timing and performances.
