My Voice Experience

I fell in love with voice acting while working in Japan where I spent two years making audio books and language tapes for Global Educational Opportunities and Services, Inc. The job was exciting because every book required different types of voices, varying emotions and different levels of energy. I was even able to create cartoon voices.

Since leaving Japan, I have continued to develop my acting ability by performing in live theater. I've inhabited characters as varied as an old Jewish butcher, a 1920s radio announcer, a Ringmaster, and even a dog!

While doing voice-acting in Japan, all of my work was done at a professional studio. I am now fully invested in a professional home studio and I look forward to providing high level, professional grade voice performances to my clients with efficient turnarounds and very personal service.

My Training

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Minnesota where I was Vice President of Sigma Chi fraternity and spent a semester abroad in Japan as well as a semester in Alabama where i studied theater - both experiences helped me develop a deeper understanding of accents and dialects.

I earned a Masters degree in International business from the Thunderbird business school in Glendale, Arizona where I was the President of the school's Toastmasters chapter and Vice President of the International Exchange Club. In the International Exchange Club, we prepared and delivered speeches, gave lectures and moderated debates on current world events or international culture and business topics.

My Studio Equipment

I believe that voice acting is more than just a well read script. Smart clients deserve and expect high quality audio, and that is exactly what my clients receive.

All of my recordings are done in an ultra-quiet, acoustically treated 'whisper chamber' using a Focusrite Scarlett CM25 microphone for world class sound.

The studio is equipped with ISDN and Skype which allows the client to direct the session remotely if desired.

I use a Scarlett 2i2 audio interface connected to my Mac via a USB port which provides 2-inputs and 2-outputs to deliver the superb quality and legendary Focusrite sound that audio industry professionals have relied on for decades.
