and the ever popular,

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).

My Training

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
Audacity
Goldwave
FL Studio
Camtasia Studio
Ableton Live

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.

Additional Skills

A few years back, I had about 2 phone sales jobs. They both had very rigorous and strict vocal rules to adhere to.
