My Voice Experience
Narrator for the Radio Grimm audio web-series. Intro/outro narrator and single chapter for audiobook non-Hollywood.
No voice over training, yet! I have studied method acting at TheatresCool in Bloomington, IL, improv training at Second City and with Mike Abselsayed, Brooke Trantor and Colin Stewart. Have been involved in several independent films, commercials, music videos and local stage performances. Performing with and founding member of improv troupe, Improv Attack.
My Studio Equipment
I am able to record in my home studio utilizing an Audio-Technica AT2020 USB mic using Audacity on a MacBook Minimal but some editing experience and capability.
Not related to voice over work, I have been a lead operations and maintenance technician at a natural gas power plant, maintenance technician and planner at a nuclear power plant, a carpenter, a millwright, a car wash service technician, an insurance underwriter. I am currently an external Administrative Technician for a large Fortune 50 insurance company. Not that any of this had anything to do with voice-over, just life history details.
