Experience

I have done several VOs on YouTube videos I made over the years, along with some non profit VO work for my local school district, recording "phone blast" messages that are sent to over 6,000 households. I was one of 10 performers who gave a live storytelling presentation to an audience of 500 at the Carpenter Center in association with KPCC, 89.3 FM. I've also voiced for Pacific Gas and Electric. Overall, I’ve been doing voice over type work for over 20 years.

Thank you so much for submitting your test! Although I truly liked your mood and style... I added you to my favorite voices because I'm constantly looking for english talents as I do a lot of work in advertising here in Mexico. I truly look forward to work with you in the future :).

It was a pleasure to work with Sheldon Wright on our “Unheard L.A.” live storytelling series. While we are not looking for seasoned storytellers and do not coach for “performance,” we do work with individuals on a clear delivery. Sheldon needed no instruction. His delivery was polished yet punctuated with emotion. It brought folks in on his journey, one that proved a fun adventure.
