HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Born in central Africa, Congo and reside in the valley of the sun in Phoenix, Arizona USA. I first discovered voice over during one summer in 2007 when I first saw the Geico commercial with the late legend Don LaFontaine.
Currently I do most of my work through Voices.com and receive clients through my site (www.IzakiVO.com) while I acquire new skills and learning about the industry.
I also speak Swahili and have worked in many projects speaking swahili.
I’d like to invite you to join a group I’ve started called “Voices of Colors.” There members offer information and advise each other on navigating this business as people of color. Just go to "forum" (up top), then to "groups," then join "Voices of Colors." Looking forward to hearing of your experiences.
All the best and continued success.
Izaki Happy Summer!
Welcome to VU. You're in good company here!
I wish you the best of success in all your adventures! I'd love you to join my group Ask a Casting Director. There's a lot of useful info that might help you there.
I'm a Casting Director and experienced actor (4 octave range) for Video Games and more. It's a unique genre, unlike any other that requires a lot of differentiation in voices because there are so many parts with so few lines each. It requires a huge vocal repertoire. If you feel you're experienced as a voice actor with a lot of diverse and useable characters, and you can hit the ground running, you can go to my Talent Assessment page. Classes and coaching links are also there, if you'd like more instant help to get where you need to be to land those jobs.
