My Home Base

, California, United States

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Fluent in French, and while it is not my native language, I lived and worked in France and am sometimes mistaken for a Frenchman by French nationals.

50s hipster (narration on one track of a jazz CD, reading from Kerouac accompanied by a pianist who won a Grammy in 2010), more of a serious, deeper-voiced narration style (jazz-gospel musical), French accent in English, French-Canadian accent in French, voicing the thoughts of a small dog in a video.

My Voice Experience

Narrations on jazz CD and in jazz-gospel musical (see above), one animation (two or three voices), TV commercials, video (expressing the thoughts of a small dog). Frankly I am just now beginning to pursue VO actively, so I haven't yet done that much.

I have also done an industrial video (on camera).

My Training

Studied VO with Leigh Gilbert in Los Angeles, who produced my commercial demo. Attended various other VO workshops.

Some acting background - plays, and simulated live studio audience broadcasts from the golden age of radio.

Stage manager for plays.

Years ago produced and broadcast several editions of a weekly radio show.

Former amateur musician, and have sung in a few stage productions, though in all candor I don't consider singing my strongest attribute.

Four intensive TV commercial workshops for on-camera work, January 2011.

My Studio Equipment

Microphone: AT 2020 USB.

Recording Software: Audacity.

Indicated above I can record and upload audio files via FTP. Don't yet have the FTP application, but I understand it is easy to obtain and use. Presently send auditions in mp3 format via email.

Additional Skills

Great appreciation for music, primarily jazz and classical. Spend a fair amount of time in jazz clubs and occasionally recording sessions. Acquainted with many musicians and singers, a number of whom are friends.

Payment Methods Accepted

• Personal checks, cashier's checks, or money orders in my local currency
