I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor, Copy Writer
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Who: Born and raised in London, England. Been living and working in New York since September 2003. I'm a real believer in mind over matter and that you have to laugh and stay positive at all times. I want to keep listening and learning. How: Started taking voice classes with the great Marla Kirban in New York in September 2005. These continue every week to this day. She, along with Bryant Falk, produced my first demo at the end of January 2006. On March 2nd (my brother Andrew's birthday) that year I signed with Don Buchwald & Associates in New York. My first booking was on the same day - promo's for the History Channel. Since then I’ve done radio and TV commercials for, amongst others, Land Rover, British Airways, Coca-Cola, Motorola and Gwen Stefani. Also, TV political ads, English-language DVDs and ESL courses and Audiobooks for most of the major publishers. And there have been hundreds of Internet marketing and training videos for Fortune 500 companies, and further TV promos for Cartoon Network, AETN International and MTV. Most of the jobs I do are from my own ISDN studio.

As a Brooklyn boy traveling to the HS of Performing Arts on the train for 4 years, I perceived NY as a beautiful hooker with bad breath.
Going back and forth in the past few years has convinced me I was spot on. I will be going back in October to see some theatre however. A friend has been cast in "TO BE OR NOT TO BE" and that is reason enough to brave the subways. Also want to see Boeing Boeing. Love Mark Rylance. The actor I wanted to be.
Thanks for the welcome. Your title under the flag says Male NY. Interesting, I always thought of NY as a Female. Thanks for setting me straight. With all those dialects, you would be cherse for Interactive work. Do you do much of that in NY?
I head up the SAG Interactive Committee and hope to get a few more bucks for us when this contract expires. Not holding my breath. At 70, may not be wise.
I remember narrating a series of 26 shows called "Fooled by Nature" with the BBC for Animal Planet and I swear..i laughed the entire session..I love the british sense of humor. In Brasil we have a similar sense of humor..well, we're all crazy anyway..the last hippies on the planet!
Yes..absolutely..be in touch anytime and I'll do the same.
sorry I am just getting back to you..I sent an email about my new email address..firstname.lastname@example.org.
You sound great!!! Then again..I always had a thing from English men..lol. Gina
