Viktor Aurelius (The Voice) is a character that I enjoy playing. My own voice is FAR different. He's been with me since 1996 when my group "Dragon's Lair" began recording parodies and dramas based on the TV show "Forever Knight". I played LaCroix / the Nightcrawler (Vampire Master nearly 2000 years old) who taunts his former protege (Now a Toronto Cop and 700+ year old Vampire) through the radio with speeches that are designed to "guide" him and remind him of his earlier, darker life. Our group created several full-cast parody and drama CDs based on this show.
The LaCroix voice is a favorite of mine (I even met Nigel Bennett and performed the voice to his satisfaction!), so I expanded my use of "The Voice" to performing poetry and short stories for my Yahoo Group http://tv.groups.yahoo.com/group/LaCroixPoems/ where I would be given the opportunity to read poems and stories by authors who wanted me to read them aloud. One of whom was Lanaia Lee - who I have known since 2003. Her words and her friendship has made "The Voice" blossom into its own entity. Now named "Viktor Aurelius".
We have been asked to appear on several Radio shows and the challenge was presented to me to create my OWN show! So.... I have been doing my own Radio show on Blog Talk Radio : http://www.blogtalkradio.com/viktoraurelius where I am "The Voice / Viktor Aurelius", performing dark, Gothic and romantic poetry and short stories. I've had many guest poets and authors who let me perform their works on my show and then we disciuss their work, helping them promote thier books. More recently the Radio Show has had MANY great guests from the worlds of Paranormal Investigation, Literature, and Comic Books.
I also write. For the longest time I had written poetry - I may return to it soon.
I also have several novels in the works (One is complete). Two are at 50%. I would love to see them published.
The past few years of hosting my Blog Talk Radio show has brought me much pleasure and a different direction to my work. I became involved in doing Audio dramas with several friends. I acted in several productions for my friends. I now write, produce and direct many Audio Productions with my friend Jeff Niles as "All Better Audio" and "The 4077th". http://the4077th.blogspot.com/
My first series "Lilith's Children" was VERY well received! Reviews said that I tackled an Epic Story my first time out and succeeded wonderfully. A 10-episode first season and more seasons will be coming. http://the4077th.blogspot.com/p/liliths-children.html
"Victoria! Empress of the Universe" is my Steam Punk Universe. http://the4077th.blogspot.com/p/victoria-empress-of-universe.html
I am also busy networking myself and my skills as a Voice Actor / Artist. I have a wide range of voices, accents, dialects and celebrity impersonations. I would love to do radio commercials and voice overs for others. Contact me if you need me!
