I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I was a really shy kid from the Midwest until I “found my voice” on the stage of the Lincoln Theater in Central Illinois. In early childhood it was easier to slip into the character of someone else than to be myself. Eventually I became the proverbial “triple threat” (actor, singer, dancer) performing into my late teens. I transferred my lifelong affection for visual medium to the “theater of the mind”, graduating from the Broadcast Center in St. Louis, (where among many other things, I learned how to hand splice reel-to-reel tape with a razor blade), and worked as on-air radio talent for six years. But I moved from center, to backstage, as I became intrigued by the inner machinations of the industry. I left the Land of Lincoln for Seattle and a burgeoning independent film community. After a few years in the lovely Pacific Northwest I hit the road again, leaving the gray skies in the rearview mirror, and headed toward the sunny ones in California. Alas, after many years working in film & television production/development, talent representation, and casting, I realized how much I missed the creativity that only comes with performing. So now it’s full circle, back to the art and craft of actor. All of those years in front of the footlights, on the mic, and behind the camera offer an insight to the process of selling through story like few others can provide. This experience within the business of show is what colors my ability and allows me to be deadly direct, yet still diplomatic. Although the energy has not dissipated, the road ends in Los Angeles, where after completing intensive coursework with Nancy Wolfson of Braintracks Audio I have finely honed my varied skills into one singular purpose, serve the story.
