Highlights

I have a lower register voice, fairly typical midwestern Michigan Accent. I have no formal singing or voice training aside from script practice, and personal instinct. From my hobbies and interests I've developed a greater than average vocabulary and a high-watermark level of English literacy, primarily developed from reading, as well as the weekly practice of leading a RPG group as the Game Master which typically involves me reading, improvising, and speaking practically non-stop for hours on end. I couldn't count the number of times friends, family, and complete strangers have encouraged me to get back into Voice-work or even acting.

Experience

My first full time job was doing work with a Call Center helping various utility companies reach and solicit payment for past due bills, after a short time in this position I was quickly elevated out of Cold-Calls and put on a team in charge of doing over the phone credit and debit card transactions on gas utilities as well as helping setup payment arrangements. This work lasted less than a year as I was forced to find other work due to transportation issues. I have since worked as a janitor, deliveryman, McDonalds Grillcook, and now I work as a swing-shift manager for the store I was hired at over two years ago.
Additionally I work for an entertainment software supplement company who designs computer systems to help Roleplayers organize their information and character about their characters and Worlds. I have been working with Lone Wolf Development (A Silicon Valley software development firm) for 5 years, exclusively for a gaming convention in Indianapolis to help demo, troubleshoot, and help "sell" the products that LWD provides. Letters of recommendation can be provided upon inquiry. I have found in recent years that my most frequent complement is that I have a great, clear, and professional voice both over a phone/speaker as well as face to face.

Service Description

I have a special talent for editorial reviews and critical analysis of written word. I always found the most rewarding aspect of taking College courses to be the critique phase of editing. I've been told I have a good eye for spotting repetition in writing, as well as being able to ad-lib substitutions without altering the intending meaning of a given piece of writing.
