What causes you a problem is actually a useful thing for me.
Many people seeing my name in print or my face approach me expecting a person with a foreign accent. When these
folks hear my "Soprano-ish" NJ voice, first they're surprised, then sometimes a bit intimidated. I usually try to milk both for all they're worth. :)

It's not just Southern accents that are so ridiculed. Those of us with
New York accents are often looked upon as Soprano-ish gangsters or
uneducated muggers
