Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

British in a non specific dialect, Scottish, Austrailian accents in a manner much like "Crocodile" Dundee. Latino accents, both heavy and light. These last two come naturally as I am half Hispanic and have lived around these accents all my life.

My Voice Experience

I have been a professional entertainer over the last twenty years specializing in live presentations. I have been involved with projects which have required me to learn a scripted part and also jobs in which improvisation was an essential part of a successful performance. In my work as a professional musician I have been lauded for my work as a frontman and also for the quality of my voice both when singing songs and speaking to audiences.

Recently, at a rather somber occasion I was asked to read passages from the Rite of Burial. An industry person was moved to remark more than once that any time I felt I wanted to move into reading professionally I could have a lucrative career given the quality of my reading, the clear diction in which it was delivered and the intrinsic power of the style in which the passages were spoken.

My Training

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education as well as a Masters in Performance from Texas Christian University. As a music educator I have had the responsibility of presenting my groups over and over again through the last twenty years, developing my differing styles of presentations though "real world" experience. I have been asked over and over again to lend my vocal talents in announcements over PA systems both as a live performcer and as a broadcasted voice. I studied voice with Dame Arlene Sollenberger at TCU. I have been working in the music industry over twenty years as a performing artist and front man for different groups.

My Studio Equipment

I currently favor the Shure 58 Condensor Mic. It is inexpensive and provides a quality recording. I am aware of the decay ratio over distance and have worked very successfully with it over and over. I bridge into my computer using an XLR cable and 8 channel board. My current software is Sonar and Audacity for mixing. I have a library of special effects and sounds and am quite able to mix down my projects at home or travel to a studio if a vendor wishes to do a recording in studio.

Additional Skills

I am a teacher by professio. I present materials to my students every day I teach in a clear and professional manner. I am also a professional musician and frontman for several working bands in the DFW area. I am respected for my skills in performing Rock and Country Western music styles, as well as being able to sing in Spanish and do a quite good job with SInatra tunes as well. I have been employed as a seasonal employee as Six Flags Over Texas the last two years as a game show host for "Face the Music". I was trusted with the primary spot, working 5 shows for 5 days a week. I did this for fun.
