My Voice Experience

In 1995 I was called to an audition. I was finishing up college, but skipped my classes to make this audition. By the end of the day, I had been cast as the voice of Master Roshi in the Dragon Ball Z series. I fell in love with doing VO work from then on. I have done several Corporate VO's for training videos and presentation. I am most proud of the VO work I performed in Bad Blood, an Emmy Winning PBS documentary on the Civil War.

My Training

I started doing voices as a child. In college I studied dramatic arts and took private voice classes for 4 years. I attended TWU for dramatics, but was able to private study under Mark Amitin who was the head of film at NYU.

My Studio Equipment

I process the majority of my VO work through my Power Mac and a Unidirectional Mic. My studio is sound proof and set to feed all recordings into my FCP editing system. There I am able to tweak the sound through studio pro and lay in any music or sound effects needed.

Additional Skills

I have been writing commercial copy for ad agencies since 1999. I started editing feature films in 2004. These skills help aid in the VO process as I can not only write copy, if needed, but certainly edit my own audio through my home editing system.
