My Voice Experience

I am just getting started in the voice over industry, and have not yet auditioned for any recording jobs. Two years ago, I retired as an executive with a Federal law enforcement agency, and decided to take training in voice overs, as people often mentioned that my voice and public speaking skills wer clear, professional and commanding. I hope to seek auditions for a variety of narrations (travel, television documentaries) training (in particular, law enforcement, medical, forensic science fields), public service announcements and political commercials. I also tend to enjoy sarcasm and hope to use my skills to support scripts needing a cleverly sarcastic tone.

My Training

November 2011-October 2012, Voice Over training, Such A Voice - 32 sessions with VO Coach Steven Wahlberg.
