Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I am native to the Boston area, but have little or no accent after 30 years in California. I am proficient with New York, Boston, British and Spanish accents. I know enough spanish language (Berlitz, extensive travels in Latin America, etc) to be able to read with good pronounciation. I can do reasonable, recognizable impressions of Jack Nicholson, Bill Clinton, Al Pacino and others. I take direction well, and I am able to pick up voices, quirks and accents quickly.

My Voice Experience

I have provided character voices for over 25 "Halo Hotline" commercial radio spots for LA Angels sponsor, California-based TV and appliance superstore chain, HOWARD'S TV. All produced by Johnny Lovato, EvisionTV based in southern CA. A recent Halo Hotline spot ("Mel") is featured here, both the final produced spot (demo #1), and a pre-production clip of it is included in my DEMO (demo #3). I have done voice overs for industrial films (PPG Street Rod Road Tour, etc.), corporate videos, and short films such as the Star Trek spoof "Roddenberry on Patrol" (2003) directed by Tim Russ.

I have studied advanced scene study at The Rehearsal Room in San Diego for over 6 years, taught by actor/writer/director Mr. Carey Scott. I studied commercial acting and voice overs at Multi Media Productions (San Diego) and attended several TV, Film and Commercial acting classes at Saddleback College (OC) taught by Bob Conrad.
