Highlights

My English voice is highly focused on the South-Western part of the USA, but might also have some little Australian features as well. I mostly sound like an old redneck from Texas when I speak English, but the truth is than I'm only 18 and purely Finnish, which makes it even more amazing how I do my accent.
My secret to this voice is the absolute pitch in my ear, which I inherited from my father, who had a weaker pitch. The pitch in my ear helps above all in music; When I'm trying to find a right note - for example from a piano - I can do it by only listening to the note and not even looking where I actually press.
My pitch has also given me a good understanding in some English accents. I didn't exactly study to speak like a Texan. All I did for it was just watching Hollywood movies and American TV shows for a long time, and while watching, my ear captured most of how Americans speak without me knowing it. I noticed myself speaking with the accent when I played video games on my computer and used voice communication to communicate with my teammates. I have always been the chattiest of the team and before long people started to ask where I am from. My frequently asked questions include "Are you from Texas?", "Are you seriously from Europe?" (I played on European servers), and "Are you a voice actor?"

I have also wanted to learn other English accents as well, especially Australian and Scottish accents.
So, if you're looking for a young Finnish voice actor who doesn't sound young nor Finnish at all, but instead sounds like he's completely on the other side of the globe, feel free to contact and hire me!

Experience

Despite my nationality being fully Finnish and having no history or other relatives in the USA, I speak English fluently with a naturally talented American (and partially Australian) accent thanks to the absolute pitch in my ear.
I have never been working on a project before with my accent, but I use it every day when I play video games online on my computer. I use voice communication a lot in games, and my accent with it, since that's the best way I can speak English. Other players in my team suggest that I should apply as a voice actor because how much I sound like a "hillbilly", or "a redneck from Texas"!

Credentials

I'm not associated with anything that has to do with my voice, and my only education is my graduation from Finnish lower secondary school in 2016, where I have learned the best of my English skills. However, streaming video games is one of my most beloved hobbies.
