HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I've been dabbling in voice since I was a child. My father worked at the local radio station, and I did a couple of voice spots and local TV commercials. I was selected as the first student announcer at my high school, and I was a choral singer from elementary school through college, as well as in community choirs as an adult. At the time, I didn't realize that "voiceover artist" was it's own profession; I thought that the only way to work with my voice was to be either a singer, or a radio announcer.
So, I got my degree in something else, and I went to work. But I always ended up being the guy who voiced any audio recordings that were needed: training materials, IVR prompts, etc.
Earlier this year, a co-worker of mine mentioned that she was starting a new career as a voiceover artist. After a little investigation, I realized that this profession had been waiting for me all along, and I simply hadn't realized it.
So here I am, with my voice (and my home studio) ready to go.
