Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I can do a range of comedic accents and voices, ethnic and cartoonish. I can also do "serious" accents -from Irish, Scottish, to Middle Eastern etc. My voices range from smooth and pleasant, to outrageous and silly.
My Voice Experience
I am also a musician/songwriter with award-winning recordings for children, as well as an actor and improvisor. My CD, Bears, Bees & Butterflies, has won numerous awards, including a Parents' Choice Award, an industry standard. I have stage and film experience, as well. I am also an award-winning writer (I used to be a freelance journalist for The New York Times), and can write custom songs, stories and scripts.
I have a masters degree in literature from Boston College. In addition, I have years of training as an actor, musician and journalist. I have performed thousands of hours as a musical entertainer for children, and continue to write and play music. I also write bluegrass/roots/Americana music and am releasing a CD of original songs with some backup from the finest musicians in the country.
My Studio Equipment
I use a program called Sawstudio, which is noted for its analog warmth (something about the code, and how it was written -- which is different than the other "DAW"s (digital audio workstation). I use an RME fireface 800 (modded and upgraded by Black Lion Audio), along with an external clock. My main vocal mic is an ADK TT tube mic, upgraded and modified by ADK. I use two unique preamps based on the old Akai tape recorders -- donor tubes are removed from these recorders and made into a discreet circuit with premium components, such as Jensen transformers.
I am an outstanding writer and improvisor, meaning I can embellish and ad lib (if that's what you need). I am also a guitarist/songwriter and can add music, make a custom song, or provide a musical bed for your voice over.
