Hello LoL gamers. I am relatively new to the LoL forum, and another member, "EmissaryShadow", steered me here to Audio Feedback page. ES seems to think AF visitors would be interested in hearing from me. I assure you, I am definitely NOT the most interesting dude in the world (just ask my wife). That being said, I did provide the voices for Ryze, Shaco, Karthus, Mordekaiser and Kassadin, which was a very cool experience for me at least. Not sure how interested any of you folks would be about the whole thing though.
That being said, If anyone ever finds themselves with a gaming voiceover question, and they think a crusty old voiceover dude may be the guy who could answer it, I'd be happy to do so... to the best of my abilitys anyway. I only ask that you don't torture the newbie too hard.
Here is a short video I put together of my LoL characters (minus Kassadin, didn't remember I voiced him by the time I made this):

And here are quick clips of 50 different characters from a few of the games I've voiced. The video is only 3 minutes, so each character doesn't get much face time, but you may recognize a few of my characters... besides the LoL guys obviously.

I've also been working on an up and coming MMORPG called "Rift: Planes of Telara" that I'm very exited about. Here are a few of the 20-odd characters I've provided for the game so far. It's looking and sounding **** slick, and there are rumors it might just give WoW a run for it's money. A guy can hope anyway. Always searching for that next steady gig.

So there it is. I'm not usually a big forum guy, but I do like to check in with the people who play and love the games I've been lucky enough to perform in. Some of the most dedicated (and protective) fans in all the entertainment world. And in my 15 years talking into microphones for a living, I've miraculously managed to retain a tiny bit of knowledge on the voiceover in video games biz. I'd be happy to share what little knowledge I have with you, the gamers. I'm also one of the VERY few guys in my business who actually plays video games on a regular basis You'd be amazed, many of the voices you hear in games come from guys and gals who have never picked up a joystick in their entire life. True story.
I look forward to hearing from you (if anyone actually reads this, that is).
