My Voice Experience

I have come to voice over through story telling and tango. I started by being asked to read a bedtime story to 100 people. They sat mesmorised. I was astonished. I started to write poetry and then perform it at Tango festivals. The feedback was very positive; embarrassingly so. I was emboldened and started to write longer performance pieces. I performed at festivals and held the audience in my hand. I experienced what it is to 'bring the house down'. And it felt good. Women tell me they don't really mind what I actually say, as long as they can listen to my voice. (It feels strange to say this stuff - but I am reporting it has been said to me).

If I'd had the nerve I would have followed a career in acting. At a young age I won competitions in my home town for public speaking. And, of course, I played the lead in the school plays. (wow...) I have a day job as an engineer, but it's flexible. Life is short. It's nothing without a creative outlet. If you want warm and authentic, then consider me.
