Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Character voices are not my specialty, but I've done quite a few of them!
I will not entertain auditions which request that I sound like Morgan Freeman, Dennis Leary, Mike Rowe, or anyone else. However, I'm sure the agents of those actors will be happy to hear from you.
