Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I speak American, clear and unaccented as a radio announcer of yesteryear. With some provocation, I can throw in overtones of an enthusiastic high-school freshman or a West Valley stoner.
My Voice Experience
My brother-in-law, lovable and crazy fellow that he is, offered me a shot at podcast stardom--a gig providing quips in a variety of tones, ranging from stoic CIA agent to peppy, informative tour guide. In exchange for this opportunity, I regularly provide him with voicemail messages from "The President", who may or may not have had a few drinks.

My current and previous jobs in the quality assurance industry demand keen eyes and ears; having worked on games, movies, and TV shows, I can pick out the little things that may hamper the end user's experience.
Throughout my life, I've harbored a constant love of games: video, board, card, and any other form you can think of. I'm particularly fascinated by videogames; I've followed their evolution from simple handheld diversions to the elaborate tales they are today.
I delight in having fun and enabling others to smile. I always have, and I always will.
I may not be trained in medicine, but I do what I can to help others with humor. When my little brother couldn't sleep, I would read Calvin and Hobbes to him until I heard snoring. When I and some other kids had to wait at school for our parents to take us home, I would drum up a puppet show using toy animals and a prop volcano (hint: it never went well for the coyote). When a party starts to die down, I'm the first to build a pillow fort.
