HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Lance has been acting professionally on the West Coast since 1983. Originally plying his trade on the stage, he has now counted himself among the residents of the “City of Angels” for over ten years to focus on voice-over, film and television.
Originally from San Jose, California, he has traveled to over seventeen countries entertaining our troops with the Dept. of Defense Overseas Shows Division, performing murder mysteries where they need it most - like Bosnia, Italy, Iceland, Greenland, Spain, Turkey and Greece! In 2004, Lance traveled to Morocco to portray one of America's great unsung heroes at the start of the Barbary Wars, starring as "General" William Eaton in the History Channel's The Battle of Tripoli. In 2006, Lance donned the mantel of Captain Henry Morgan in the History Channel's True Caribbean Pirates - filmed in San Juan. Here at home, Lance has performed with the Seattle Children’s Theatre, The Seattle Repertory Theatre, Ft Worth Shakespeare in the Park, and locally with the Theatre Banshee and the Glendale Centre Theatre. He began his training at San Jose State University, progressing to the Pacific Conservatory for the Performing Arts in Santa Maria and the Professional Actor Training Program at the University of Washington.

Hello Lance, the fact that you do all those accents and have worked on at least one video game gives you bonus points in my realm.
Welcome to VU. You're in good company here!
I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.
I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.
Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!
I hope you'll check out and join a group that we started not too long ago called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT.
