Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I can manipulate my voice to create different characterizations, both male and female, human and nonhuman and from very young to very old. I have a collection of stock voices which includes, but is not limited to: sassy urban chicks; a mischievous, phlegmy and somewhat pompous old man I call The General; several different air-headed valley girls; a sweet, naive, shrill, middle-aged Cockney woman; a deep, demonic voice; a high-pitched voice that brings to mind little space aliens or mice; frontal and lateral lisps that could portray a young child or a braces-clad adolescent (male or female); an MC/announcer who ranges from used car salesman to boxing ring referee; a sexy, sultry female voice; nerdy, gender neutral dweeb; hillbilly; overbearing Jewish mother; robotic Steven Hawking-esque voice; snooty, yacht-owning, WASP (male); and Southern belle. In addition, I can do a number of accents: Russian, Indian, French, Spanish, British, Irish, Australian, Mexican.

My Voice Experience

I have a few years of professional voiceover work experience. I've worked for a radio station as an imaging talent as well as various commercial gigs. As an actress, I've had onstage roles as well as on camera roles (one of which is a film I've done voice over narration for). I have also done voice recording for an international standards organization to use in developing voice compression technology. I have cut three demo reels with PDR Voice Over Coaching, two of which are animation and one commercial. Currently I am represented by Performance Network Agency, the largest non-union VO agency in North America.

Additional Skills

I consider myself an outgoing and gregarious person. I love making people laugh and
work well in a group setting. I live very close to New York City and am very comfortable commuting, but I can also use my own car when appropriate. I have a professional grade home studio set up and record on it frequently for various auditions and jobs.
