My Voice Experience

I have been acting for over fifteen years on stage. You can check out www.gmelton.com for videos, demos and see some stage pics, and on camera stuff too. I entered the voice over world in 2010, when I started training at Bosco Studios in Chicago. Although my first voice job was back in 2007 or so when I played a mule for a radio spot--see demos. Just like any business I am always trying to build my client list and they come from all over the world these days and in different ways- web video, tv commercials, video games, etc. I would appreciate the opportunity to work with you.

My Training

Living in South Bend, IN I feel fortunate to have access to some of the best training in the world online. And it is not just about voice acting training to me, but also about recording techniques, sound quality and everything else that will allow me to provide you the best sound files for any project.

I have taken classes with some of the best talent in the business--Marc Cashman, Terry Berland, Terry Apple, Bettye Zoller, Nancy Wolfson, Terry Daniel, Dave Zema and Edge Studio in New York. I have also worked on my home studio by taking classes with Dan Lenard and a private session with one of Edge Studios top engineers. I have done private consults with a local sound "guru", Bruce Bartlett, who wrote the book "Practical Recording Techniques".
