imitator, dramatic, dry, professional, sarcastic
My voice can be warm and deep and breathy for narrations, powerful and hard-hitting for commercials, nerdy and interested for expert explanations, crisp and deep like a giant colossus and more.

My Home Base
Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I can do anything from a snooty Englishman to a struggling Frenchman to a lecturing American professor to a friendly Korean businessman to a child's cartoon character and a lot more. My abilities with native-English accents include: Inner-city London, posh-English (England), Scotland, Ireland, Australia, Boston, New Hampshire, American South, Northern California (surfer), San Fernando Valley (Valley Girl, my hometown), Anglophone Canadian. Foreign-English accents include: Parisian French, Francophone Canadian, Italian, Romanian (vampire), Russian, Chinese (Beijing, Cantonese, Sichuan), Korean, Mexican/South-American (Spanish speaking) and more.
My Voice Experience
I've worked at Bokai Media Studios for over 6 months. I've performed cartoon male roles, old men and evil villains. Most of my work, though, has been in industrial advertisements. Their format usually requires a deep, powerful introduction, followed by a soothing poem, and then an interested explanatory voice for descriptions of their product series, certifications and awards.
On-the-job training and improvement has given my natural talent for imitating accents a professional edge. Related experience while attending the University of Puget Sound is hosting an early-morning Jazz radio show in 2002 and co-hosting a prime-time Electronic/Prog-rock radio show in 2004. I read Birmingham High School's morning announcements over the PA system as Commissioner of Communications from 1999 to 2001, graduating that year. I've worked four summers as a camp-counselor at an at-risk youth camp, The Mayhew Program, in Bristol, New Hampshire, where we made loud, encouraging announcements about our boys twice per day, as well as wrote and performed comedy skits twice per week. After receiving my BA in Chinese Language and International Affairs in 2005, I moved to Chengdu, China, where I studied Mandarin and picked up the Sichuan dialect. In November 2006, I worked as an editor and translator for That's Yangzhou magazine. One year later, I moved to Guangzhou (Canton) were I translated subtitles for documentaries and movies with two independent film-makers. I've worked as MC at several Chinese events, speaking Mandarin. I freelance as a Chinese to English translator. Over the last six months, the managers at Bokai have been instrumental at describing the desired voice qualities and playing demos for me to further improve my talents.
