Upbeat, calm, collected, simplistic
My voice varies based on project. I can be zany and wild for cartoon based performances, calm and collected for IVR or automated systems, will-powered and strong for television (or even dramatic, if the need arises). Or, I can woo the crowd over with a simple lowering of my voice.

My Voice Experience
While my voice over experience is limited, it comes with the best intentions to bring me into a world of actors and actresses.
Currently, I work alongside the English "Gaming Radio Network", playing the part of a DJ on their Subspace Radio online station. Collectively known as, "Subspace Radio, The Voice of Star Trek Online", the station features plenty of DJs like myself in blocks split up all week. Due to the bane of the United States, 'work', I can only do two hours a week, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy doing it.
I've never had professional experience otherwise, unless you count my years in my high-school's Audio/Visual program. But, as most people put it, I have a face and voice for radio.
I have no college or vocational training in voice acting or audio engineering. Everything I know is collectively pulled from my experiences in high school, or the good ol' fashioned internet.
I did do, as part of my time in Audio/Visual, work on voice-overs for in-school commercials and our daily news broadcast. I worked the audio station and graphics, as well as directing on a constant basis.
My Studio Equipment
They say work with what you have, or rather, what you can afford. So, available to me are:
My HP Envy Dv7 Laptop,
a CAD u37
Virtual Audio Cable (for broadcast purposes)
edCast (for broadcast purposes)
Audacity (for editing)
If you have a writer that is stumped on how to position something, I am a good guy to turn to. Not only am I creative, and can come up with some witty one-liners, I can also keep the writing composed for a more business type gathering.
