My Voice Experience
I come to voiceover with over 20 years of acting training, experience and improvisation. I have studied with Melissa Gray (commercial), Paul Liberti (characterization) and Shelly Shenoy (commerical and animation). Moreover, I am an entertainment sponge, meaning that I can recreate the styles of characters in movies from the 1930s to present in their various genres (ie, gangster, film noir, romance, screwball comedy, sci-fi, etc) as well as stars during these periods. In fact, one of my favorite voiceover projects was recording dialogue for a theatrical film noir piece which was then lip-synced to performance on stage.
