Profile Information

I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I am a voice actor with an unfeigned love of science, technology, and learning.

Not only have I trained as an actor but I also have years of real, hands-on experience and training in the sciences, cutting-edge manufacturing, engineering, and high technology design.

It's not unusual for me to browse around Pubmed and Science Direct reading articles just out of my own curiosity and love of learning (quite the wild lifestyle, I know ). I'm the guy people want to sit next to in biology class.

Bottom line? When I perform a script involving "g-coupled protein receptors," "ultra-high-vacuum cryo pumps," or "response surface methodology" I have some real personal context.

I also love humor, improvisation, and bringing characters to life.

Rich,
I just heard your demo's on Jim and Penny's blog. They sound great.

I am a student of theirs as well and will be in San Diego in a few weeks to record my demo's. Any advice?

Thanks,
