My Voice Experience

Until 2010 my voice experience was comprised of two stages. One consisted of acting a number of years ago in film and theater. The second, consisted of teaching for a number of years in college and high school were I lent my voice to a number of educational projects and materials.

My Training

I studied acting at UCLA (BA degree). I have studied for the last 2 years with Eliza Jane Schneider (South Park etc.) with dialects and accents. I have also studied audio book and narration with Laurel Van Der Linn. I have done workshops with Pat Fraley for audio books and commercial narration. I have also attended workshops for video game, promo and commercial voice overs. I have logged dozens of studio hours and recorded hundreds of cuts.

My Studio Equipment

I recorded the bulk of my demos at the World Famous Radio Ranch in Sherman Oaks California. This is a full service professional recording studio for commercial, promo, audio books and video games. I have access to the studio when I need to. Also, at home I have a Shure KSM 32 cardioid condenser mic and a PreSonus Studio Channel preamp. I mix on computer software which can be sent in file form

Additional Skills

As a voice over talent, I rely heavily on both my experience as an actor, musician and teacher. I feel these experiences give me an ability to convey the appropriate feel and feelings for a variety of client needs. And today, where I have for several years, done VO work for promo and trailers, video games, animation, documentaries, commercials and corporate videos.
