"Interesting delimma. That's a big audition. Like doing the whole play or reading the entire script. All I can say is, if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck and acts like a duck, well buddy, it must be......."

Big Llou with Courtney Cox during a VO session for WE's "Mix it Up" She gave me the nick name "Sweet Llou".. I wonder why?


After a busy week voicing in LA I found time to relax in Malibu with my best buddies, former clients and now fellow artists.. Peter Black of Hidden Beach Records and Actor/VO pro Rhomeyn Johnson.. who is on about 100 natl TV spots already this year! Well.. it seems like a hundred...

RIP OFF ALERT or Not?

Posted on August 24, 2010 at 12:31pm 7 Comments

I was awarded a job from a voiceover site today but before the session I got this very interesting request from the client which I've posted below.. Please read and respond with your thoughts.. Thanks



"Before we talk on the phone, it might be helpful listen to a full draft of the script in the same way you did the demo. That way we have a reference/base to work with. It was really helpful to hear the first demo. Could you do a draft of the full script before we meet?"

Big Llou...
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say 'Thanks' for hosting and moderating the very first 'Diversity In Voiceover' panel at VOICE 2010. many real issues were discussed and even though there was no clear resolution--we at least had the platform and opportunity to shine a light...
Thanks again to you and the distinguished panel

Hi Big LLou!

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.

I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!

Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!

Best to ya!
