My Voice Experience

I used to announce the football and basketball games in high school, and have excellent tone and pitch for announcing - have booked many jobs as Emcee and host of various events.

In the last few years I changed careers and became an actor on tv (demo reel at www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwm_g0-0lnQ , including segment with me doing a Finnish accent). I have learned to monitor and control my voice well as a result of the acting training, and have been auditioned for commercials including the new Volkswagon campaign.

Recently I was used to record the voice answering system for a local vocational school in Los Angeles (call 310-224-4200 and you get me on the phone system). I do voiceover for many of the student films at the New York Film Academy, and my acting coach Richard Hatch (from Battlestar Galactica) has referred voiceover jobs to me as well.
