My Voice Experience
I have recently done voice-over recording for ABC 20/20- a segment on the 2009 Somali hijackings doing the native Somali voice translation in English, a documentary film, "Heirs to Byzantium": a perspective on the cultural ties of Byzantine history and American religion, the National Geographic Channel's "Crime and Punishment"- a number of African voices. I've done narration for a dramatic play that's being packaged on DVD for Greenwich Street Films, as well as narration for a slave documentary for PBS' "Wayfaring Stranger and radio tags.
Most recently I played a character who is a native of Zimbabwe and spoke the native language, Shona. It was so gratifying to learn a new language.,
I'm gifted with a resonant voice and my New York Shakespeare training at the National Shakespeare Conservatory and John Kane from the Royal Shakespeare Company, has been a huge asset in knowing how to color the words and give emphasis where needed, as well as having performed dozens of theatre plays throughout my career. I've also worked with renowned dialect coach, Robert Blumenfeld of the Stella Adler Conservatory in NY. One of my strengths is taking direction very well, and improvisation helps my broad imagination.
My Studio Equipment
I spent 2 years working for an a Sound Technician for a large church which housed it's own audio studio with varous sounds boards/equpipment which I used on a daily basis. I recorded live events - concerts, weddings, speeches,etc and edited them in different formats such as analog to digital.
Examples of equipment were: Mackie, Soundcraft, Yamaha, Telex and more.
I use garage/Audacity band on my iMac for recording audio and editing to my video recording for my talk show which I do online once a month on youtube. I'm a writer and interested in the process of filmmaking so I'm interesting in all production areas, including souned.
In addition to my voice-over career, I'm actively engaged in acting, writing my own materials which gives me a better understanding and appreciation of the studio side of the art as well as a voice-talent.
