My Voice Experience

Perhaps you saw me as the drunk Southern hick or the high-pitched nasal insect in "Christmas Thrills and High Adventure" on stage. If not, let me tell you a little more about me.

I have been actively doing dorky and fun voices most my life. I finally threw myself into studying voice overs a couple years ago. I most recently enjoyed a 6 week animation voice over class and a 6 week commercial voice over class.

I studied sound recording and editing at Glendale Community College where I performed narration, characters and ADR for student projects.

I love ADR! I find it simply fascinating to do as both a performer and an engineer. I'm also of the mindset that knowledge of the whole recording process is of utmost value to the voice over actor.

And just for fun I've started a YouTube site for silly stories and songs with my basic sound recording/editing knowledge, my sound equipment, and desire to talk and sing.

My Training

Commercial and Animation Voice Over with William Williams.
Santa Monica Playhouse Actor's Workshop with Chris DeCarlo.
Commercials A to Z with June Chandler.
Improv 101 at Upright Citizens Brigade.
Doo-wop Vocal class with David Siebels.
In front of and behind microphone for Voice Over Workout Group with Mick Wingert.
Basic sound recording and editing at Glendale Community College.
Musical Theatre at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York.
B.A. Communications from Cornerstone University, Michigan.
Was a certified EMT with the County of Los Angeles once.
Spent time training others in various aspects of job skills in the variety of corporate jobs I've had, such as training warehouse employees at Disney on use of forklift and Yahoo! team in India on new software for search marketing. Also almost always in charge of emergency safety at any job I've held since no one else seems to want to do it!
