My Voice Experience
I have been a working actor and voice over artist for over 15 years. I have commercial and legitimate representation but also represent myself as a freelance VO professional. I am a non-fee paying member of SAG/Aftra (ficor) and may work both union and non-union jobs.
Some of my past jobs, both national and locally, include Sunoco-Hess, American Express, HP, FM Global, TSMC, UBS, Huntington Bank, Sunoco/Hess, Mitchell Gold-Bob Williams, Trojan condoms, Delimex, Scott's Turf Builder, Channel, Jaguar, Taco Bell, New Jersey Power and Electric, NY Lotto, Audi, T-Mobile, Nike, Party Poker website, Long John Silver, Ten More Good Years (documentary) and others. These jobs ranged from TV and Radio to Feature Film.
I studied acting at William Esper Studios in NYC and earned my masters at this studio program in 1999. I also work with several VO coaches in NYC to keep my VO skills current and unique.
In 1992 I graduated from UCSB with a BA in Film Studies.
