Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects
I can do cheesy, but quality accents of:
Mexican Street Thug
With enough research and practice, I could extend this to:
Black/Wigger thug (though, I'd rather not)
other state-specific slurs
Character wise, I find that I thrive best in the "unfriendly" types. including (but not limited to):
The Man with a point to make
The Man with a bone to pick
The Man with an agenda
and the ever popular,
Textbook Villian (I can even do the laugh!)
My Voice Experience
Absolutely none (with the exception of the occasional shooting off of accents here and there in conversation, and watching/listening to a lot of voice in media of all types).
As of this writing, I am a semester and a half (that's about 15 weeks plus 1-2 weeks off) away from graduating with an associate's degree in Visual Communications at ITT Technical Institute. Because my field of study often involves audio, I am no stranger to the art of the voice.
Along my life, I have also been complimented many times on my fluency of the english language (though I am by no means an expert, mind you. I just paid attention in high school).
My Studio Equipment
I have an Iphone, and a Samsung laptop, along with many software tools for editing video, image, and audio.
the audio softwares include (but, again, are not limited to):
Adobe Soundbooth, Premier, and Aftereffects
I have (on some of my own free time) fiddled around with various game mods for Skyrim, which included this audio mod: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/9375.
A few years back, I had about 2 phone sales jobs. They both had very rigorous and strict vocal rules to adhere to.
