Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
Nearly anything and everything, literally. I can imitate any accent in English and differentiate between local idioms in the USA and UK, this includes accents from non native English speakers. While I do not speak any foreign language fluently, I can speak Spanish and Japanese phonetically. I can probably read any other language phonetically and imitate the native accent.
I have been a puppeteer since 2007. I do many human and non human characters, some reminiscent of classic cartoon, others completely original. My inspiration is Mel Blanc, the voice of Looney Tunes. Anything Mel could do, I can do better. Mostly because Mel is no longer with us.
Pretty much anything you can name, I can do. From news presenter and radio jock voices, to accented English of any color, to cartoon character silliness, I can do it all and more.
My Voice Experience
In 2007, a friend of mine gathered together a collection of people to perform Night of the Living Dead, The Puppet Show for a local film festival. I was cast as the TV anchor man and radio voice. Since then we have expanded into short film and video and I have voiced many other characters including; Scotty Stumbles, Governor of a Wisconsin like State, who sounds a bit like Don Addams; a Southern Buddhist preacher; Joon, a rather smallish female ogre; T. Turtle an homage to Cecil Turtle from Bugs Bunny cartoons and many others.
I am self taught for the most part with only a bit of voice and dialect training from the Bristol Academy of Performing Arts at the Bristol Renaissance Faire.
My Studio Equipment
I only have a microphone and laptop currently. I have a high speed internet connection. I currently rely on others in our group for sound engineering but will be learning and building a recording studio in my home.
I work in IT support and have worked in web publishing. I am highly experienced in technology. I am very intelligent and learn new things quite quickly.
