I have a pretty good ear from studying violin from 4 years old so with a sample I can imitate a lot of things.

My Voice Experience

My biggest job was probably as the race starter in a sperm race for a Durex Condom commercial.

Most of my jobs have been some sort of TV announcer.

I've also been used quite a bit as a voice coach for Japanese talent when they have English speaking lines.

My Training

I studied violin/viola/piano for 14 years.
I took some acting courses at the Interlochen Arts Camp though my main focus was music.

I worked for a TV show teaching English to a famous Japanese talent and coaching him on his English when he had English speaking parts for other TV shows and movies as well. After that show ended I have coached several other talents also.
