CHARACTER VOICE SPECIALIST!
BE SURE TO ADD ME TO YOUR FAVORITES SO YOU CAN EASILY FIND ME WHEN YOU NEED ME, THANKS!
When I was 12 years old, my parents bought me my first tape recorder. That sparked a passion for creating character voices that has never left me. Listen to my character voice demo to hear some of my creations. I also have the ability to SING in ALL of these different voices (usually in key!)
Other words to describe my voice: Versatile-Unique-engaging-energetic- warm and comfortable- fatherly- professor-natural baritone. Extremely reliable and direct-able with an exceptional work ethic! My vocal range is very broad- from deep and powerful movie-trailer sound to folksy, warm and genuine to silly and kooky higher ranged character voices (redneck, cranky old man and many more!) I am an excellent mimic and can impersonate a variety of celebrities (and non-celebrities as well!) Impersonations of numerous different voices such as Christopher Lloyd as "Reverend Jim" (Taxi TV series), John Ratzenberger of "Cliff Claven" fame (from Cheers), Ronald Reagan, Pee Wee Herman, Casey Kasem, Sean Connery, among others as well as numerous animated characters (Simpsons supporting characters Barney, Krusty, Burns & Smithers; also Beavis and Butthead, Marvin the Martian, Fozzy Bear, Miss Piggy, Yoda and many more). I can impersonate a variety of characters voiced by such talents as Frank Oz, Mike Judge, Harry Shearer and Hank Azaria.
Wide range of dialects and accents including numerous regional US (New York / New Jersey- Boston / New England-Northwest Fargo-Deep South-Texas-Redneck-California Surfer dude and on and on). International dialects include British (from upper crust to Cockney)- Australian-Scottish-Irish-Asian-Spanish-Italian-Middle East-German-Russian-East Indian-and most others you can think of!
Excellent with script interpretation, dialogue and character development- I have extensive stage acting experience, so will help bring your scripted words to life! AVAILABLE TO WORK WEEKENDS TO GET YOUR PROJECT COMPLETED!
