Voice Description

My natural voice is light and falls into the baritone range (with tenor overtones). I can drop it to a deep and resonant bass voice for announcing purposes, and love to do comic and character voices.

I tend to speak clearly and with great diction, although I can slur and manipulate my voice when necessary for a role.

I am able to mimic a number of dialects and accents, including British, Cockney, Irish, Southern US, New York, Indian (west asian) and others.

My Voice Experience

I have been an actor, an improvisational comedian and a musician/vocalist for a number of years now, specializing in offbeat and character roles but with enough range to play a variety of roles both supporting and lead.

I have often been told that I am easy to work with, and I try to make any experience a lot of fun. I live for the arts and enjoy any experience that allows me to express my creativity either as an interpretive artist, a writer or a performer.

Additional Skills

I have done a number of audio recording projects both on my own and with other people, including advertisements, songs and radio dramas. I have done exceedingly well during my university career, and I am often asked to do staged readings for my fellow writers and other projects due to my personality, vocal abilities and excellent cold-reading abilities and vocabulary. I am easy to work with, fun, enthusiastic and looking to find work in the creative arts!
