My Voice Experience

As a software and process trainer in a large Architecture firm, my responsibilities were to educate staff on standards. I recorded many videos and audio training materials. My goal was to make it clear, concise yet engaging.

I also create educational materials for my animation courses and record all the narration. As an animator, I record my own scratch and final character voices. For my interactive children's books, I narrate in different styles to add variety in the programming.

Additional Skills

As a professor and teacher, I am regularly on stage. My classes would easily be lost without an engaging presentation. My lectures tend to be for smaller groups from 1 up to 40 participants. This helps me connect with the audience. I try to maintain eye contact and a voice style that is tailored to each specific venue, topic and audience. My recorded material attempts to keep this lively style. If my viewers don't listen, they can't learn... and that required my attention to detail.

As an animator, artist and designer, I am constantly living the varied lives of different characters. I animate from within each character and that enables me to "be" each character. My character voices become the character and physical, emotional and vocal traits meld within my being. I don't just speak dialog, I live in the moment and become each character.
