My Voice Experience

Film/TV work in Toronto during 1990's. Industrial voice overs, commercials, documentaries. Left field to do studies and other musical work and now looking to get back into Voice Over field again in a big way!

My Training

B.A. York University 1985 (Toronto) Music/Arts/Jazz Program. Pianist/vocalist. Many years of professional work as musician/singer, both live shows and studio work. Performed in bands that recorded cd's and songs on radio during 1980's.
Studied vocals under noted vocal coach Rosemary Burns including breathing techniques etc.
Studied jazz piano with Frank Falco, York Univeristy Professor.

I took acting classes in Toronto/did acting work/voice overs in Toronto during the 1990's and was in movie the Anne Gilian story (Special skills-Pianist) in her studio scene in movie. Did music/voices for numerous commercials for radio mostly.
I have also written music for film/Commercials etc.

MixCraft recording software, good mic, top quality Audio Technica studio headphones.
Great Lenovo lap top with Steinberg MI4 Midi/Audio interface.

Additional Skills

My years of running a band and acting/selling my business and skills, gave me a strong ability to work well with all kinds of people and create a strong team approach. I am flexible and willing to learn/contribute to projects and most importantly, I LISTEN to what is required for every project.
In earlier years I worked in sales in music stores while studying, and this gave me a good understanding of people, how to read any person within a few minutes of talking with them, and I learnt a lot about the entertainment industry at that time.

I believe that my strong musical background has allowed me to use my voice in a 'musical' way that is not just the spoken word. This is why I can do many Accents, as I hear the song or music in each accent from various countries, which I still find fascinating!
I look forward to working with you very soon!
