Pre-, Post- and Production Services I Offer


My Home Base

, New York, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Real characters are the sum of their life's experience. Whether a southerner, Texas twang, or a New York "Hey you", the character has to be likeable and believeable. It's what I strive for even if the dialect is purely impressionistic.

My Voice Experience

I fell in love the first time I used a microphone. To me this this is a craft. A craft I love. It was time I do something about it. So I did. I had a professional demo made and was quite pleased with the outcome. The advice I got from the studio was to get as many people as possible to listen to it. I'm so glad I did. You see I would watch people listen to the demo and invariably they would comment "Is that you"? It's a real confidence builder.

My Training

Bryant and Stratton Business Institute: AOS in Micro Computer Systems Management.

Coaching in Schenectady, NY
which resulted in the production of my first Demo.
These boys are good. They do a lot of PBS work and handle some very good talent. The staff experience is exceptional. Award winners.

1) The Harlan Hogan VO: 1A Microphone.
