Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Southern, old, deep South accent-like Scarlette O'Hara,
Southen Slave Nanny - as in "Gone With the Wind", Southern, modern female accent - like a red-neck/trailor trash queen,
Southern, red-neck, crazy man...this one is the best, Cajun accent,
British female accent, Classic and Modern)
Some Old English & Middle English as well,
Baby crying and screams...this one can be creepy; American Ebonics,
Ricky Bobby impersonations,
Jim Carrey Impersonations -
I would say my talent would be a female-type Jim Carrey, I also do a mean Elvis Presley impersonation.
My voice makes new sounds everyday!

My Voice Experience

My voice is Spectacular!
Although I have never done ANY voice over work, whatsoever, I BELIEVE that anyone would be shocked by my ranges of voice. I am shocked everyday :)
I have been making new and wild voices for fun, all of my friends and family demand it!
I always perform for my friends...Elvis and Ace Ventura are the top favorites...oh, and I cannot for the "man voice"...the crazy, southern, red-neck!

My Training

I have no formal training.
I have experimented with and practiced different voices nearly every day that I can remember.
I am a raw talent, ready to be revealed!

My Studio Equipment

I have Windows Media that I can record on then convert to mp3 files with a downloaded program.
All I have at home is a laptop that I can download programs to; however, I have access to a recording studio in town.

Additional Skills

I have a degree in English Literature, in which I learned to speak in a British accent. From my studies, I learned to perform Shakespearean sonnets in Modern English with a British accent, The Prolouge to The Canterbury Tales in Middle English; and I also learned to recite The Lord's Prayer in Old English. I took one non-major, beginners acting class near the middle of my under-graduate career, and I wish I would have changed majors; because I am a natural performer.

I love to be in front of people and I love to speak for people who do not have a voice. Mostly, I just like to stand in front of the mirror and make silly faces and voices.

I am almost thirty years old, and I would like to make a name for myself, doing something that I have always enjoyed, but was never encouraged to persue. I would like to do voice projects that allow me to make others feel emotions, from happy to depressed and anything in between. I simply want to use my raw talent and energy to do something I enjoy...Making other people feel.
