Voice Description

My voice can learn to do almost anything; I have yet to find an accent I can't do profoundly (so I have heard) well, once worked upon, except for Hans and Franz' accent: "You and your puny muscles." Still working on it. When hydrated and at rest, the voice has been told that it's a baritone, and very sexy when speaking Japanese. It can speak in other languages sexily as well, I think, but has yet to learn how to be comprehendible when doing so.

My Voice Experience

I have voiced testimonials for UWH Publishing, been the voice of excerpts from "Let Nothing You Dismay" by Benjamin Shulz for BoBo Strategy, provided pro-bono work to non-profits on a no strings attached basis, and provided the voice of over eleven characters on the web-series "My Secret Sexy". I have voiced characters from all over the UK on behalf of White Loop, providing facts and contrasting information on whether Nuclear Energy is a viable source of sustainable energy for the United Kingdom. I have commentated Real Tennis and Lawn Tennis matches alike in both serious and light-hearted manners. I have translated promotional copy from English to Japanese and then given it voice for PlasmaNet Incorporated, sung and performed a skit at a wedding in Japanese, given life to a prominent role in a British acting troupe, and acted while speaking in both Japanese and English - only once playing an American.

My experience, in other words, is cultivation.
