Highlights

Hey, heads-up, this area is likely going to be updated until I either die or give up my dream of being a voice actor! Hopefully death greets me first.

Why am I here?:
Attempting to get into the voice acting business here. I've got high school media class experience and that's pretty much it.

Wait, only high school?
Yes! I am currently in high school, actually. Well, at the time of writing this, 5/30/2017 at roughly one in the morning Eastern Standard, I'm on summer vacation. Also at the time of writing this, I've done nothing for anybody on this site. I'm hoping to change that soon, though.

What can be expected?:
That's something that I'm wondering myself. Going through those developmental teenage years, I know that I've got quite a few things to iron out, especially about the way I do things. I can almost guarantee the following, though.
-Ambition. I've got an inner fire that never truly burns out. It may reach an incredibly dim point but I know that until I die, that little tiny ember can spark an inferno.
-Poeticness? An actual word escapes me. I both think and speak usually with poetic undertones. Before I even really knew what poetry was, I grasped concepts such as similes and metaphors well. I often use them in basic conversation, as well.

How would you describe your voice?:
My understanding on my own voice and capabilities is still a blade in the forge. I'm constantly learning new things that I can do with my birth-given vocal cords. The following are things I've been told multiple times or have realized myself.
-Familiarity. I've spent my time talking to other people over the internet and it seems like whenever I branch out and talk to someone new, they wonder if I'm someone they've already met or know. It's something of a bother at times, but I figure that in the realm of voice acting that's likely a hidden blessing.
-Likeable and friendly. I get along well with so many people thanks to the friendly tone of my voice. Sometimes even people I don't like too much! This also segways into the next portion...
-Comedic. I love to crack jokes, and the upbeat and friendly aspects of my voice really hammer it in, nailing rather than cementing my place into people's hearts and memories. After all, everything's temporary.
-Awkward. I have a tendency to fumble when I speak, and in addition, I'm prone to rambling or saying stupid things. This circles back to the comedic portion, giving my voice its own humorous charm.
-Opti-pessimistic. The glass is half full now, but two minutes later it's half empty! I'm a capricious person and it's reflected in the way I speak. I'm something of a negative Nancy, looking on the downsides, but that aforementioned ambition lights up the darkness and shows me the sparkly upsides.
-Casual. I'm not a very "professional" person. I'm a t-shirt and jeans guy by heart and nature. I speak lightheartedly and I'm rarely fully serious. That's not to say that everything I say is complete nonsense, either. I'm capable of seriousness and a lack of seriousness, yet on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being silly nonsense and 10 being full seriousness, I rank about a 3.5

C'mon, aren't there downsides?:
Yes, of course! Everything has downsides, myself included. I'm not perfect, and this is why!
-Laziness/procrastination. I'm the kind of person where fun comes first, and then work. Admittedly though I enjoy doing things like this, so it's not a huge bother. Still, I've shrugged off homework for video games quite a few times.
-Mental illnesses. While my therapist nor prescribing doctor have ever flat-out said it, they've beaten around the bush that I'm schizophrenic. I'm medicated for it and most of the time it helps, but every so often I fall into a hallucinatory depression where it's hard to jerk me back into reality.

TL;DR'd this? Don't worry, I'll sum it up for you.

I am Gage Shideler and I'm a pretty casual and friendly guy who loves to joke around. I'm a little awkward but that adds to my charm! I'm not the most serious nor professional person, I enjoy taking life casually and one day at a time, yet I can be serious when it's required. I'm a capricious person so I flip between optimism and pessimism. I'm somewhat lazy and a procrastinator. I am most likely schizophrenic and that may affect my ability to get things done on time.
