My Voice Experience

IT IS MY CREATIVE PASSION TO EVOKE EMOTION AND CHANGE INTO THE ENTERTAINMENT FIELD AS A TALENTED VOICE-OVER ARTIST. I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRESENT MY TALENTS ON THE STAGE AND TELEVISION MORE THAN IN THE STUDIO RECORDING LIVE. IN ONE TELEVISION EPISOD OF "UNTOLD STORIES OF THE ER," I PLAYED AND AFRICAN SECURITY CHIEF WHERE I HAD TO USE AN AFRICAN ACCENT.

I HAVE ALSO HAD TO USE A BRITISH/ENGLISH ACCENT IN THE PRODUCTION, "THE THREE TRIALS OF OSCAR WILDE," WHICH I ALSO HAD THE PLEASURE OF BEING NARRATOR.

THE MOST EXCITING FOR ME THUS FAR HAS BEEN A COMMERCIAL PROJECT. I COMPLETED THIS PROJECT AT RK-1 PRODUCTIONS FOR SNU UNIVERSITY. AS WELL AS TUTORIALS FOR DAYS INN AND RANDY'S RV'S THAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COMPLETE AT MY IN HOME STUDIO.

BECAUSE I HAVE A SUPPORTIVE FAMILY NETWORK, AND STRONG DETERMINATION TO SUCCEED IN THIS FIELD, I LOOK FORWARD TO A LONG, HEALTHY, AND PROFESSIONAL CAREER AS TALENTED VOICE-OVER ARTIST.
