Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

As a character actor, I bring my gifts/talents to the mic. White Men/Women, African American Men/Woman, Spanish Men/Women accents, Indian, Russian, Irish, German, British, English, I mimic voices...so if you would like me to try any particular impersonation, I will do my research, and give it my best shot. Who knows...we may both be impressed! I always love a good challenge! It increases my range :)

My Voice Experience

Performed as Lead talent in an Interactive training CD ROM for a Sales company in India through Lion Bridge as an actor.

I'm a newbie in the VO industry, however, I just graduated from the Connecticut School of Broadcasting 2011, and ranked top of the class. I'm sure you will not be disappointed with my work.

All demo's on my page are 100% Fully produced, edited and every voice you hear, is coming from my mouth. I do not alter my voice using computer tricks. I may however add a little dynamic processing for a more professional quality and I always normalize my work to -3.

More demo's are on the way.

My Training

Graduate of Connecticut School of Broadcasting 2011, classes in Broadcast Journalism, Radio Production & Imaging, Copy writing, Television Performance & Production. Graduated top of class with A- GPA. (I'm not a sports fan at all, but managed to get a B in that somehow)

While in school, I wrote copy for a 60 second spot which aired on K-JOY Long Island's John Tesh show for Linchitz Medical Wellness.

I was the recipient of 11 awards at graduation, some of which were for Outstanding Television Commercial and Performance, Radio Production, Excellence in Talk Radio, Imaging, Broadcast Journalism and outstanding achievement in editing in Final Cut Pro.

Completed the Ruth Franklin Master VO class in NYC and attended several other varied workshops in the voice over industry.

My Studio Equipment

Digidesign M-Box 2, Pro Tools, MacBook Pro, MXL 990 Condenser Mic at home.

I also have free access to a studio 5 minutes drive from my home where I do most of my work (until I learn to master Pro Tools).

Comfortable using a Mackie Board, Radio Systems Console, 360 Shortcut, Adobe Audition and Cool Edit. Fully capable of producing any audio project including Music beds & Sound effects.

Additional Skills

Besides the character work, I also have a very normal, professional, smooth and warm side. Over 15 years in Customer Service experience on a sometimes global level, has given me invaluable experience in the professional corporate realm. I'm sure I would be a perfect voice for any training video's or voice on-hold recordings as well.
