HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I have been a voice-over artist for over 30 years, for local, regional and national clients. I have written and produced thousands of radio commercials and have directed scores of nationally known voice-over artists. I train both newcomer and professional voice talent to get the most out of their abilities, and I help people produce demos that get attention.

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.
Welcome to Voiceover Universe! You'll meet some old friends and make some new ones around here!

It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. With your experience, you would be a tremendous resource!
