Highlights

A clear speaking First Nations Native American voice that can be deep, rich, and resonate with the image of the wise Native man. Can switch up just as quickly to comedic and raise the pitch to something higher to give that sense of rising interest or surprise. Can adopt a hard, guttural heavy metal vocal range to give that sense of demonic evil. Most proud of my wide range of laughter, I can do a jolly, happy, goofy laugh to brighten the room; the next moment a high pitched insane Mark Hamil-esque joker laugh to chill the spine. Able to adapt to different accents and currently working on learning Chinese and Japanese to broaden my range. Powerful projection one moment, gentle lull the next. Able to easily adapt to whatever the client needs.
