My Home Base

, California, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

My voice is unique in and of itself displaying influences of Scottish, London English,Jamaican and Californian American.
I have not, as yet cultivated particular accents, dialects, impersonations or characterizations.
However,I'm currently studying the art of articulating many different sounds and languages, in my capacity as a speech coach and ESL teacher.

My Voice Experience

when I was young, in London, I use to get many jobs when I called prospects up on the phone. However, when they saw my brown face at the interview, it was tantalizing to see how they wiggled in their seats trying to find ways to deny me the job. Fortunately, I'm a good sport and my prospective employer's soon realized that I was also a good workerand they would be hard pressed to find someone as affable and efficient as me.
Coming to America, after the typical acculturation process, I was able to ingratiate myself to my employers even as I had to reassure them that my accent/tone, although appearing superior to their's, was not my intent or desire. Fortunately, Americans are better sports than the British, and I'm recognized now by my associates as a warm, friendly and compassionate human being, who just happens to sound better than them.

My Training

I have a degree in English literature from a British University. I also have a degree in Civil Engineering.And I'm a certified ESL teacher.
I've traveled in many parts of the world and have imbibed the rhythms of many cultures. I love to talk. I'm a raconteur, like my Jamaican father.
I had a local cable TV show in the Bay Area, throughout the 90's, called "Culture Shock News" which I produced and hosted. It involved interviewing people from around the world and presenting a commentary.
I followed this up with a radio show, called "Author's Corner". I again interviewed people - authors - for a publishing company back East.
I was the president of a poetry group in San Francisco, and organized and presented a poetry video/film festival each year for five years. This involved a number of administrative duties but also presenting the festival to a live audience.
I'm also a published author and poet and have made a number of presentations of my poetry, books, and poetry events.

I'm currently a certified English as a Second Language Tutor and Speech Coach. Where I teach and practice the art of talking.

My Studio Equipment

I use to have my own studio with pro tools, a mac computer, and video editing equipment etcal.... I suffered a reversal of fortune in 2008 and I'm now just getting back on my feet.

I'm looking to start with the Audacity software, download. I have an Olympus digital recorder which I use for practicing and recording poetry that I like, and for my students.

I plan within the next few months to invest in a professional software that will allow me to edit and produce professional sound.

Additional Skills

In many ways I'm a renaissance man. I've worked in the Oil business, I've been an antique dealer, a civil engineering, a diamond miner in West Africa, a worker on a kibbutz in Israel, a hotel worker, a road sweeper, a government worker in the Public Works department, a teacher, a sales executive, an insurance salesman, a self-employed owner of a number of business's, a poet, a writer, a lover of history and someone who reads voraciously and continues to see the world as an adventure that challenges me daily.

Oh, and I love Shakespeare, whoever they finally decide who he is.
