Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Accents include American and British English. Some russian accent ability I am also capable of. My performances have been considered by some to be so luring that when I am done speaking, they are left speachless and then after a long pause yet all eyes on me, comes the applause and bravos.

I would like to keep this ability for as long as possible.

In addition, I have been told that with my Classical Singing experience; I find it easy to adapt to scripts in other languages pronouncing everything properly on my own.

I like a good challenge and accept them with a smile.

My Voice Experience

I have spoken to the public on behalf of several graduating classes of the US Navy, have performed Classical Singing (Opera) live as a US Navy Performer.
I take my work seriously yet also have fun with it as to keep spirits running high!

I've been told I am very easy to work with and can adapt to almost any environment where speaking or voice overs are concerned.

I do not discriminate when it comes to job type. I am willing to do just about anything on the scale from innocent to adult and have the voice ability to pull it off.

I am currently a writer for several major article producing companies. I am called upon by certain top employers under this agency and usually am sent invitations on projects opened specifically for me as an article writer.

My Training

Most of my training for classical singing which I have used in many demos for businesses in the area was provided in high school as a choir member (Mezzo Soprano) and the US Navy. Voice training in the US Navy commenced in 2000 and concluded in 2005 at which point I left the military. Public speaking on behalf of the US Navy were never tasks or events that were taken lightly as it were.

After my first performances, I was called upon time and time again for award ceremonies, graduations, promotions, division announcements, change of command and so on.

I have a very interesting voice range with perfect pitch and am very flexible when it comes to voice overs yet great quality and deadlines are always adhered to.

My Studio Equipment

I have access to a studio which a friend has given me. They are a former television anchor and now shoots videos, records audio for promotions and commercials. His equipment is top notch and is to my avail for major projects.

He also has offered me to use the many packages that are housed in the studio such as voice and time software and a professional microphone that the true beauty and clarity of my voice be heard.

I have many friends in the industry ever how directly or indirectly, that can assist me on projects. If they are not available, I can easily make way to one of the local recording studios.

Additional Skills

My ability to bring into view the vision of the project owner (or as close as possible to their vision) of what they desire to be the outcome of the project; is what makes me unique as a Voice Over Artist.

I take seriously their vision as this will enable me to produce a product that is as close to perfect for the employer as possible.

Having performed many times for and within the US Navy and Marines over a five year timespan, I am confident I can satisfy and usually over-deliver a product; yet never to adversely impact the project.
