My Voice Experience

I've done voice over work for several internal corporate videos for Merck. One story in particular comes to mind that expresses my talent as an impressionist and a character VO artist.

Merck was producing a celebratory video about their success in manufacturing. The video was shown to kick off a 3 day conference at a hotel in Jersey City. The video started off with a "Real World" parody. The VO artist that was hired to come do the reading was unable to make it on time. They asked me if I could step in and do my best impression of the VO artist. The voice was one of an older gentleman with a thick north jersey accent. I used my judgment and did a bit of the impression and some of my own creative liberty. Eventually the VO artist did arrive and when they played both back - the VO artist they hired, and me doing the impression of him - they went with my read for the final.

My Training

Bachelor of Arts in Communication at Centenary College

Self promoted, produced, edited my voice reel:

My Studio Equipment

I have access to a professional VO booth and can send files via e-mail.

Additional Skills

I'm a permalance producer/editor at Merck. I've been involved in writing, shooting, producing, and editing internal videos for almost 6 years.

Skilled in:
MS Office
Avid Media Composer
Adobe Premiere Pro
Final Cut Pro
After Effects

My character voices/impressions are a talent that does not have a large home at Merck. I'm trying to branch out and find more clients to grow further as a VO artist.
