My Voice Experience

My Father used to grasp me by the shoulders, look in my eyes, and say, "I'd like to speak to Michael now!"

I spent so much of my youth being other people & creatures, that my parents often feared that I would have no way of distinguishing reality from my full and colorful fantasy life. My teachers would tell me to "stop talking like that!" and my classmates would point me out to new kids and say either "he's weird" or "come see him, he does the most amazing voices!"

I spent a long time in the legitimate theatre, alternating between princely leading men, and odd character roles. It is difficult to pin me down to one type, and the most fun I have is in playing villains. I've found that most of the nicest people play bad guys in their professional lives!

Making the move to V.O. was a no-brainer, and something I'm extremely excited about. I'm flexible, creative, attentive, and very easy to work with. I put out professional-grade recordings quickly and take direction well. Thanks for taking a Look / Listen at me!
