My Voice Experience

I have always been a parrot-- imitating voices and accents, bringing stories to life as I read them. I immerse myself in every voice I make, be it a serious professional or a silly clown. When in school, if the teachers needed something read aloud that all the class needed to hear, you can bet I was the first one they chose.

Many morning radio hosts would play my call-in characters over the air, including popular Orlando host Scott Mckenzie of MIX 105.1, who knew me as "the cockroach under his refrigerator".

I have since become the many myriad voices of the Runescape Machinma channel "Rackleflackl" on YouTube as well as the Computer Crusader.

My experience as a stage actor for the Altoona Community Theater in Altoona PA proves my voice has carrying power for stage as well as lots of character and emotive inflection. Let me be your voice too!

My Training

I have an Associate Degree in Web Design and Interactive Media, which included classes in voiceover video productions.

I have been in the following plays for the Altoona Community Theater:

Four-In-One: An Evening of One-Acts - November 1994

Neil Simon's "Fools" February 1996

Annie Warbucks - May 1996

Murder by the Book - February 2000

Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse (Children's show) - March 2009

I also do 95% of the voices on the YouTube Channel "Rackleflackl", a Runescape Machinima channel, as well as Computer Crusader
