*CUSTOMER COMES FIRST*
My approach to customer service is simple: I'm bringing the *customer's* vision to life. Your project, whatever it is--be it a commercial for radio or TV, a business-to-business (*B2B*) video, e-learning module, or hit Amazon book brought to life via audiobook--is the customer's baby. A creative vision that needs to be brought to life. My job is to help create that vision, not to make my own. I'm available almost all hours of the day to get to work immediately on a project, or record pickups because of an 11th-hour script change.
I spent four years as a YouTube and podcast personality, lending my voice to videos to make a point, drive home emotion, create a funny character, do a live read for a sponsor, and everything in between. I have an intuitive ability to hit immediately on a script, as well as be able to pull out all kinds of emotions from the same group of words. You want funny? I've got that. Somber? I can do that, too. Want the hard sell for your latest toy for kids? I've got that from *Take 1*.
This is not to say I'm perfect. Direction is needed to bring your vision to life, and I take it very well, and can be guided to hit the perfect notes you and the project require. I have a warm, deeper tone that will resonate with listeners, especially when coupled with a salable, upbeat delivery. I can add a bit of grit and gravel for that rustic, tough, sound, or cut some of the base to sound more youthful and upbeat.
My voice and range would be perfect for these uses: Television, Radio, Commercials, Web video, Business, Educational, Documentaries, Movie Trailers, Audiobooks, B2B, Telephone IVR, Podcasting and whatever else you need!
I can provide the hard-sell, announcer, authoritative, tone just as well as the conversational, believable sound that will have listeners attaching weight to the words I speak, and everything in between.
I have and am developing character voices, as well, like Yuiry, the bumbling arms dealer with a Russian/Eastern European accent, and Tony, the benevolent villain henchman, with a tough New York accent.
My character acting would be perfect for these applications: Animation, Cartoons, Comedy, Characters, Video Games, Funny, Crazy, Accents, Impersonation
