My first voice work came at the age of five, when I heard Anthony Newly on what I recall to be a show called Laugh In. I'd never heard any other dialect other than my own, and I was fascinated. In short order, I was doing a (not great) British accent that my family and friends actually paid me to perform. Over the years, my ear, and voice improved, and I added a wide retinue of character voices, and dialects to my performance repertoire.
Though I have no commercial voice experience, I have been participating in a "read-aloud" program for sixteen years, and am now up to approximately five hours per week. I also have over twenty years of experience with character voice work on stage, and small group exercises.
I also have production experience in film, with five producer credits, and eleven screenwriter credits, so I am familiar with and can provide the level of professionalism and attention to detail required to achieve the quality results you need for your audio project.
