My Voice Experience

I started my career in theater at Broward College, where musicals such as (The little Mermaid)required me to hone my voice in a youthful sing song tone for young audiences. Where as straight plays such as Anna in the Tropics required Cuban American dialect work. At the university of Central Florida I worked with the FIEA (Florida Interactive Entertainment Academy) on video game voice overs, and motion capture projects. My voice was used for a feline gangster for their video game "Nine Lives till Midnight" I used a New York accent with a 1950's ring to it. At UCF classical plays such as Moliere's The Learned Ladies brought out a comical and elderly quality in my voice where as contemporary work such as August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean brought out a dark and authoritative villain.
