My Voice Experience
My experience so far has been primarily in the non-profit sector. I have volunteered with a few charities in particular since 1998 as an voice and stage actor in an "interactive Halloween play" in which I am typically given the lead role specifically because of my strong voice acting abilities. These voices range from deep, menacing villains to insecure mental patients to heroic saviors. I also record other voices for use in other parts of the show, such as evil laughs, out-of-view monologues, show rules, etc. that play from recorders.
I have no formal training, but I have personally studied the art of voice since I was a child; always paying attention to what sounds in a voice identify the person and region they are from, as well as years of self-taught studies on the Internet.
My Studio Equipment
At home I have a small collection of dynamic and cardioid microphones, shock mounts and pop filters as well as the full Adobe Creative Suite 6 where I can process with Audition. I don't have a dedicated studio per se, but I have a home theater which is sound-proofed and covered in sound absorbing foam insulation which I do my recording from. If necessary however, I do have access to full sound studios via personal contacts of mine.
As I mentioned, I have quite a bit of volunteer acting experience which is quite relevant. In addition to the Halloween plays I've also played bit parts/extras in a few local independent films.
My other relevant experience was my year or so doing stand-up comedy on the side. A big part of my act were my impressions, which always went over very well. I took a few stand-up classes, did a ton of open mics and even competed in local competitions but never pursued it as a career.
Payment Methods Accepted
• Personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders in my local currency
