    Voice Actor

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago

    If you live in New England, you may have heard my booming voice on the radio, or narrating the occasional TV commercial. I've recorded work for Subway, AMC, Aroma Joe's, Maine and Vermont Lotteries and Powerball, in addition to a number of commercial video games. Some of my most popular voices include "wise wizard" for adding a Gandalf-like gravitas to narration, "Biker" for a hardened, manly sound and "epic announcer", modeled after the great Don LaFontaine himself (and used in several radio spots). My voice can range from deep and intimidating to light, pleasant, or professional, with the ability to impersonate many popular characters and certain celebrities. I can perform a range of accents and ethnicities as well.

    Writer / Designer / All-Around Reliable Dude

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 5

    BIRDS-EYE VIEW OF BARRY: Self-starter with strong written and verbal communication skills, with an ability to quickly understand complex, technical concepts. Strong analytical and project management skills with an ability to identify needs, develop effective solutions, and manage projects through to completion. Excellent at research, planning, estimating and writing skills. Highly proficient at meeting established deadlines with a history of delivering fully on commitments. Extensive knowledge with delivering positive customer service experiences, both for internal and external customers. Well-versed in business and consumer technology with specific expertise on iOS and Mac OS X platforms. LET'S ZOOM IN A LITTLE: I work full time as the Technical Training Content Development Manager for the Global Education team of a very large software company. Prior to that I was the first/only Technical Instructional Designer and before that was a Technical Proposal Writer. I majored in Communication and Rhetoric Studies at a small, liberal arts university, with a minor in Spanish. I additionally attended graduate school to become an elementary school teacher, but ultimately decided to leave that program for a career in technology. I also hold multiple certifications from Apple on both hardware and software, along with certifications for securing and managing corporate deployments of mobile devices. I have written for feature news and hard news publications and have won multiple awards for both my field reporting, creative writing, poetry and photography. I am also an experienced writer and deliverer of speeches and presentations, ranging from small rooms to thousands of attendees. I am excellent at resume/CV design, and have helped many individuals find gainful employment through my belief in clean, modern design and effective communication. Basically, I have a lot of experience writing a lot of different types of things. That list certainly doesn't comprise all of the them, either. HOW CAN BARRY HELP ME? Need something done well and quickly? I can do that. Need something creative written on demand? I can do that. Need a presentation that flows smoothly? I can do that. Need high quality, in-depth editing with quality feedback that won't sound super negative? I can do that.

    Voice Talent

    United States - Last active: 06/01/2014 - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 4

    I have been been voice acting since 2007. My voice is naturally medium-high, and tends to fit typical heroine type of characters. My range varies--I can voice a cute, innocent little girl, a hyperactive spoiled teenager, or a serious and mature adult figure. I can even voice little boys! My acting is rooted in anime or cartoonish ways, though I am completely capable at the more realistic acting as heard in Bioshock Infinite and The Last of Us. I'm known for my range, my acting ability, and the great amount of energy I bring to every character I play. I've provided the voice for Sierra Ops, Tree of Life, Deadstar, and various other content. I can voice act in Japanese, Spanish, and English.
