My Voice Experience
I'm a natural with talent that has a place to showcase my skills on a weekly youtube show (Wrestle Addict Live). I'm looking for new opportunities to expand my repertoire.
I sang on 94WYSP in Philadelphia, PA back in January of 2010 for Danny Bonnaduce's Aerosmith Idol contest, where the contestants were singing for a pair of Aerosmith tickets, and trying to prove that they were good enough to fill Steven Tyler's shoes in his absence from the band. I won the contest with 81% of the votes from all of the world-wide listening audience.
Other than that,within the last few years I'd done sporadic impressions and narrations for personal clients.
Mostly self-taught. A few classes here and there.
I haven't acted on stage since 5th and 6th grade in a production of H.M.S. Pinafore, and Ruddigore (Gilbert & Sullivan) and I have won a few karaoke contests over the years, including 2010's Aerosmith Idol on the former WYSP radio station in Philadelphia.
Graduated Summa Cum Laude from Albright College in Reading, PA with a degree in Digital Media and Art
I guarantee that I have the skills to fill almost any role, no matter what degree or training I have.
