My Voice Experience
I'm a skilled actor of stage, screen, and video who has been working in voice-over for some time. My first paying acting job was with Blue Man Group, in which, of course, I didn't use my voice at all. However, I began by reading aloud to my wife at nights to help her sleep, and used the skills I developed there to make my way into the business.
I've recorded promos and medical narration, and have a strong background, having trained in Shakespeare, diction, and Linklater voice work.
* B.A., cum laude, Yale University, Theater Studies and English
* British American Dramatic Academy, London
* Actors Center, New York City
* Voiceovers Unlimited (Dan Duckworth), demo preparation and ongoing skills development
My Studio Equipment
* Access to ISDN-enabled studio with phone patch
* Blue Snowball microphone
* Audacity, Garageband, ProTools, etc.
* Simple isolation booth
Can travel to all areas in New York City and surrounding suburbs in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
I'm a skilled drummer and percussionist and have been performing on-and-off with Blue Man Group for 10 years while pursuing other acting work in stage, film, television, and voiceover.
I am also the founder and chief editor of the Green Theater Initiative, a non-profit dedicated to inspiring theaters to go green and helping them to do so. It publishes articles, interviews, and resources related to theaters and the environment, as well as sponsoring a competition for works about climate change and consulting directly with theaters to reduce their environmental footprints.
I have a keen intelligence, being an intellectual at heart; I graduated cum laude from Yale University.
Other skills: yoga, tennis, soccer, ability to catch thrown objects in mouth
