My Voice Experience
I'm a chameleon. Whatever you need, I've likely got it. Together we can make you and your client happy campers!
I've been making my living as a full-time voiceover actor since 1989 - I have the best job in the world!
In 1975, Magic Brush Car Wash in Waco, Texas paid me $25 to imitate Mae West on a radio spot. That was my first taste of life behind a microphone, and I liked it.
In the early 1980's, I wrote and edited copy for a TV station in Memphis, Tennessee, and was their announcer for locally-tagged spots. A radio producer asked me to do a German accent for his client, and lo and behold, the spot won an Addy! This was fun! Thus began my transition from part-time to full time talker. In the late 80s, an acting job landed me in Little Rock, Arkansas, where I discovered I could get even more voiceover work.
During all my years of voiceover-ing, I have been an actor – and I also have several stage directing credits. At last count, my list of theatrical experiences numbers 70+. Among other performing arts jobs, I've sung and danced on riverboat cruises, emceed at fundraising galas and delivered singing telegrams (NOT one of my favorite jobs). I've been a first-person living history actor and appeared in live and broadcast murder mysteries. I've got numerous on-camera spots under my belt, as well as a few films.
My clients include:
WalMart (broadcast and in-store)
GE Appliances (tutorial DVD)
Back Yard Burgers
Isle of Capri Casinos
Hill’s Pet Nutrition
Comments from clients:
“I’m fascinated by how different your voice can sound.”
“I love the way you can become whoever I need you to.”
“Well, it’s Allison – she can’t go wrong!”
My training? On the job! I'm an actor, director, writer, editor and visual artist.
I studied Drama at Baylor University and graduated from Memphis State University (University of Memphis), with a BFA in Graphic Design.
I’m also an Army Brat; we were stationed in many regions of the US and in Germany, each of which presented my ears with another accent, dialect, cadence and intonation. I must’ve paid attention, since I still use those voices as references.
My Studio Equipment
Pro Tools 10, Neuman U87, Prima LT ISDN
I'm extremely directable. I'm good with technical/medical language. I have an internal clock that counts in tenths-of-a-second. I've got a great sense of timing - it's important to milk all the laughs or all the drama out of a moment. I'm a stage actor, and I can walk the line between that and acting behind a microphone. Plus, I'm non-union so I can legally adjust my own mic stand.
