My Voice Experience

For me it all started with imitation. I would constantly try to vocally reproduce sounds and voices. I was introduced to the world of accents through my family's travels, as I grew up with military parents. I then began spending quite a bit of time as a DJ and MC. This led to character work and development of personality types. I found that as I studied acting, comedy, and improv - I could utilize my lifetime of mimicry and impersonation experience.

Additional Skills

The first thing would be that I am very easy to work with. I understand the process and realize the nature of the position. I take direction and try to utilize my abilities to make the vision of the people I'm working for a reality. Efficient and dependable. I am also a perfectionist so I will not turn in sub standard work. Life experience would be the second. There is a tangible difference between hearing someone who reads it and hearing someone who has lived it.
