My Voice Experience

Throughout my life I've been doing voices and impressions--of friends, co-workers, famous people, cartoon characters; it's a force of habit, an itch I have to scratch! Combine that with my songwriting and instrumentation bug and--BOOM!--tailor-made for voice-over projects!

During college I wrote, acted in, and recorded many video skits doing movie trailers, post-production narration, and impressions. Several years ago, I co-wrote and directed a short office comedy called "Growth Opportunity" playing the part of a strict, self-serving boss. I also wrote the score.

For six years, I've written and recorded commercial music cds under the name "Loam", so I have plenty of experience producing home-studio projects.

My work-ethic is professional and my voice-overs will reflect that attention to detail. I'm congenial to work with, and am very flexible on requirements for a project.
