Voice Description

Everyone is born to do something. I was born to do voice over acting and I know it. I would say my voice is unique. That can mean many things. I was one of the many kids who did voices when they were little, as well as create little scenarios and imitate characters. I am able to adopt a person's accent or voice within seconds of meeting them. As far as my voice itself, however, it comes in many different forms. It is warm and relatively deep for audiobooks, zany and silly for cartoons and videogames, smooth and slick for documentaries and presentations, strong and clear for promos and trailers, and much more.

Like people learn something new everyday, that's how I am with voices.

My Voice Experience

I tried many ways to get professional gigs. I took many classes, marketed myself in multiple ways, did my research and read many books on the industry. Finally, Lady Luck paid me a little visit. My friend and very well-known magician, Robby Bennett, listened to my demo and told me I was fantastic. The fellow even said I could be the next Don LaFontaine. That compliment sent me sky high. I felt like I could conquer the world, but I knew I couldn't be cocky. With a little help from him and a couple of contacts he gave me (Michael Satterwhite, an actor and acting coach/Dustin Amodeo, a web designer)I was on my way to my first gig. I was so pumped for my first role: the 'please turn off your cell phones' man. It was exciting to know that my voice was going to be heard in front of 4,000 people. A while after my first gig, I got the chance of a lifetime: to be in a videogame. Operation Dead Dawn, to be exact. It was a similar story to Resident Evil. I played a male soldier who yelled out various commands in a Sgt. Hartman (watch Full Metal Jacket) type of voice thanks to another dear friend, Charles Felton, a game designer. Two gigs may not mean much to some, but to a voice actor like me, I'll take any professional job with great eagerness and a smile. I cannot wait for my next one!
