I am a graduate of the Second City Training Center Acting and Writing programs. I have narrated several audiobooks, one of which saw me regularly voicing characters in French and British accents. I have done freelance work voicing marketing materials such as sales videos. I am able to edit and record in my home studio.
My native accent is the Midwestern one heard on standard American news broadcasts. I am able to record in a variety of accents and comedic tones.

Voice acting is less about having one of "those" kinds of voices and more about what you do with the script. I got into voice acting after hearing copy being poorly read for local commercials and knowing that I could do better - that I could convey the meaning and not just read the words. The value of my narrations is 20% inflection and 80% interpretation.
