Profile Information

I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor, Copy Writer, Voiceover Coach, Vocal Coach, Linguist, Dialect Coach, Speech-Language Interpreter
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Raised on a working cattle ranch on the edge of the Badlands, and first introduced to acting at The Yale Summer Drama Program, I've since studied voice with Will Lebow, Cynthia Songe (@ Sue Blu/Blupka), Patsy Rodenburg (Sir Ian McKellan & Dame Judi Dench's vocal coach), and at the National Voice Intensive. Over the past 15 years, I've brought to life tons of animated characters for Humongous/Atari, Microsoft, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, in addition to working on regional (Colorado Lottery) and national ads (AOL) both behind the mic and in front of the camera in both Spanish and English. On stage, I've been anyone from a pregnant West Texan to a manic Meryl Streep. Currently, I'm working on writing both a short film and a feature, exploring cross-cultural and gender constructs, and the short IFP Spotlight Award-Winning project I had a supporting role in, "Betty", which investigates mental illness, just premiered as a work-in-progress to exceptionally positive reviews in Seattle.

Hi Michelle!

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 called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!

Best to ya!

Hi Michelle!

I just listened to your Sara Palin parody on the Lunatic Press site. Very funny stuff. I loved your Palin impression. I am hoping to market some parody type audio to some morning radio types soon. I do over 60 celebrity voices including Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams, Bob Schiefer. All would be good interviewers for your Palin character. Maybe we could put something together in the future if my idea takes off.

Take care, keep up the good work!

Best regards,

Hey, Penny!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome into the UNIVERSE. I believe we've actually been rep'd or are currently rep'd by some of the same folks across the country. I've certainly seen your name pop up quite a few times!

I'll check out all the info you've sent along, and look forward to both continued dialogue and success for all of us out here...

Warmest regards,
Michelle Thorsob
