Ever since I was young, I have entertained those around me with my voice. They always used to comment that I had a unique voice and I never failed to make them chuckle or smile. I realized that maybe I could start putting my voice to good use, and I stepped into the world of voice acting. I have been talking through a VOIP program for years, and have been told countless times that I should be putting my voice out there. So that is exactly what I am aiming to do.
Although I am new to the scene, I will not disappoint. I strive for excellence and am willing to take the extra steps to make my work of the best quality it possibly can be. I specialize in characterizations and the dubbing of cartoons and animation, although I have a very strong voice for doing more subtle and demanding work such as commercials and advertisements. Although like to focus on comedy, I have been told that I have an excellent speaking voice, suitable for documentaries; and also a soft and caring voice for more calm moments of voice acting.
For characters, I have an array of distinct, unique, and different voices ranging from a high-pitched gnome, to a rough-and-tumble wrestler, to a wheezey old man. I also can do a number of accents, including Scottish and Jamaican. As I have a voice that can bend dramatically, I present a large range of characterizations, so if you should have any suggestions or need a sample of what I can perform; I will gladly get back to you as soon as possible with your request. I aim for professional quality, and will make the effort to do any characterization you request of me to suit your needs. Just drop me an email!
My goal is to provide you with the best quality of character voices and talent that I possibly can and make a name for myself in this business. It is something I have always wanted and strived for, and I am hoping to make an honest living and have fun with the voice acting environment!
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestiong, please do not hesitate to contact me! I am always open to all comissions that come my way.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile, and get to know a little bit about me!

Like I have said, although I am a fresh talent, I have a lot of knowledge in the field. I have followed the path and experiences of many different voice actors including Veronica Tailor, and have studied upon techniques and worked hard to get where I am today. I wish for the chance to prove that I can make it big, even though I have not been in the Voice Acting field for a large amount of time. Everyone must start somewhere, and I strongly believe in quality over quantity!

Willing to send a tape or CD, but more than likely I can send it in the form of an MP3, VRF, or WAV depending on what you need. It can be send through Email, uploaded to a specific website of your choosing such as Rapidshare, or another method if directed.
Varies depending on the content material needed to be performed. Anywhere from a half hour for something below 5 minutes in length to record, an hour to edit for quality; to a full-length piece that can present a day’s worth of work.
As I have described above, I am willing to go above and beyond what the vast majority of people are expected to go through in the name of quality. I believe in hard work, and that it will show in every project that I complete.
