Voice Description

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

My basic voice is North American, but I am able to imitate a British, Scottish, and German accent. I can also alter the pitch of my voice to imitate younger or older characters or to create a comedic personality. I can also create personalities for unique characters such as talking animals, and supernatural creatures.

My Voice Experience

I have written, produced, and of course voiced my own radio drama(Northwestern College, 2009) wherein I played multiple characters with different personalities and unique "voices" of their own. In college I also worked as a radio DJ for several radio shows(Northwestern College, 2006-2008) that featured different topics from entertainment to sports. I also had the opportunity to work as a color commentator for basketball games at Northwestern college. I also have experience writing, producing, and voicing commercials and am able to use sounds effects when appropriate to enhance any production. My schedule is flexible and I am always willing to learn new techniques. Using my voice for a career is my passion and I am open to any opportunities and challenges.
