    Experienced and Dependable voice artist, writer and humorist

    United States - Last active: 23 hours ago - Tests: 7 - Portfolio: 15

    I am a professional voice artist with over twenty years of experience. I have provided voices for animated features, training seminars, commercials, webinars, video games and audio books, including titles such as "Twelve Years A Slave", "Huckleberry Finn" and "Narrative of a Slave by Frederick Douglas". My range includes character voices as well as informational deliveries, whether dramatic or more subtle or conversational. My voice clients have included individuals, corporations and government entities in the United States, Canada, Israel, the Ukraine, Western Europe and Asia. I also provide my own editing and mastering in most cases, and can apply those skills to projects that do not include my voice. I am flexible, focused, provide quick turn around, and my rate includes any revisions needed up to 30 days after the close of a contract. I also have over twenty years of experience in customer service, Arts administration, teaching, management, creative writing, non-profit work, improvisational comedy and public speaking. I hold two BA degrees, one in Communication Studies and one in Theater Performance, and also a Masters degree in Liberal Studies/Interdisciplinary Studies. I have taught privately, in the NC school system and also as an adjunct professor (during which time I served on various thesis committees). Presently I serve as the Artistic Director of a non-profit theater company. I have also been the co-company manager of an improvisational comedy group for the last 20 years. I have vast experience in writing press releases, forming curriculum, training employees, and leading group activities and workshops (corporate and public sector). I am comfortable working as part of a team or on my own, and have a strong work ethic, accompanied by a professional attitude and good time management skills. Along with my "real world" experience, I have been a director of plays and variety shows for over 20 years, and have directed casts of over 100 people on quite a few occasions. I have strong leadership skills, enjoy helping others reach their goals and have an active imagination that I enjoy applying to projects. I have also organized several fund raisers and charitable events. Regardless of the work setting, whether customer service, writing, management or performance, I possess the ability to be creative and have relied upon my ability to think "outside the box" to the benefit of myself and my employers. I also have a strong sense of humor (which goes a long way towards avoiding experiencing or causing stress!). I enjoy researching and am a quick study of disciplines that are new to me. I have, for the last 8 years, also been a privately contracted in-bound phone call service agent. I am comfortable dealing with situations that require discretion, and am detail oriented. Please feel free to contact me about "unusual" jobs as well (legal of course!). Thank you for reading my profile, and I look forward to working with you!
