My Voice Experience

Austin Humane Society -- This is a web promotion wherein I portrayed a dog named "Alfie". The purpose of the promotion was to encourage pet adoption. (Door No. 3 Inc.)

FAFSA.ED.GOV -- An AM radio spot promoting student loan opportunities. I was the narrator who is the brain of the high school graduate I'm convincing to head to college. (Buckalew Media)

Voyant -- A promotional web video for a financial consulting firm. The narration I provided was persuasive and convincing.

"FWD: If You Love Someone Watch This" -- A short film parodying viral, superstitious e-mails. I provided the narration and the characterization was that of a parody of the voice of Robert Stack from "Unsolved Mysteries". (Rogue Alchemy Prod.)

"Untitled Horror Comedy" -- A feature film about a film crew who ends up shooting in the wrong abandoned house. I play one of the leads and I provided additional voices - screams, victim death exclamations. (Rogue Alchemy Prod.)

Additional Skills

My experience in education has given me the opportunity of not only working with students, but helping me improve my performance as a voice/screen actor. My most important duty is to build relationships with my students. I approach this by referring back to my experience as a performer. I'm the actor, my students are the audience, and my lesson is the script. This especially gives me the opportunity to use my voice talents to portray different characters when stories are read aloud in class.
