My Voice Experience

HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Due to a traumatic event as a kid, I lost my voice for two years. To overcome my speech impediment, I spoke into a tape recorder daily. Hearing my voice played back on a recorder trained my voice and ear. I developed a remarkable sensitivity and an impeccable memory for a variety of voices and sounds. When my voice finally returned, I used this talent to entertain myself and my friends. I studied acting in high school and traveled with a show on weekends. I also studied singing and voice, developing a significant vocal range. I studied radio and voice at the Announcer Training School in New York City. I did voice overs for Youth Education, Inc., Special Olympics, Boys & Girls Club of America, Hardee’s® Restaurant, Boy Scouts of America, and The Salvation Army among others. I hosted "Cityscape" a weekly program on WFUV–FM, New York, did the voice over for the documentary (pilot) "Who Killed Vincent Chin?" (which, in its final version, earned an Academy Award in the “Best Documentary” category). I've done voice overs for many other video projects through Faithworks. I've also performed in the United States and overseas at live events as master of ceremonies and as a solo singer.
