HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Hey, my name is Patty Mo, and I am just breaking into the voice over community. I have worked on several student projects, and a few local commercials including Kravings Restaurant and Lounge, and All the same wild and tame animal shelter. I used to be the host of Patty's Playlist which was an online radio show that aired live on the internet. I am looking for any and all suggestions on how to advance from here... thank you in advance
so here is a little about my story... I have loved making up voices since I was a kid, my parents made the mistake of giving me a tape recorder to play with when I was about 4-5 years old. I used it so much that my mom would have to keep replacing the batteries about once every few weeks.
When I graduated High School, I started as an intern at the local radio station "KBIG 106.3" in Merced County. I was an intern for less than a month when they decided to give me my own radio show.. I was not live, at first but I did go on air every night from 9pm-12am. I had found my dream job... Well a few months later the station got bought out from a different company, and my show was sadly canceled.
I went on to college then my sister and brother in law were moving to LA and they dragged me with them... I then worked in the promotions department at KZLA 93.9 (while it was still a country station) then again there was a different company that bought KZLA and turned into MOVIN 93.9. So from there I created my own radio show on the internet called Patty's Playlist... I hosted my own show for a few years then I had to let it go due to financial hardships. Meanwhile I was going to school to get my degree in Performance Broadcasting for RADIO/TV.
Now I have finished school, finished my demo and now I am ready to jump back into doing voice overs that I have long awaited to do.
So Here I am!!! That is me in a nutshell...
English, very very little spanish
I have a very youthful sounding voice with a very wide range of personality. I can perform little kid voices, all the way to elderly. I can sound very sexual, or very angelic. I am wiling to try any voice or character male or female.

southern, very non authentic British, very character Russian
VOICES I AM ABLE TO PERFORM
Senior Female, Middle Age Female, Young Adult Female, Teenage Girl, Child Male, Child Female, Baby
Patty....that's an excellent story, and you've got a lot more background than many who are starting in LA. (btw, I used to listen to KZLA and KICK FM, back when they were really country stations...anyway) hope you make it down on the 19th. We have several regulars who share a similar background. Bob
