Congratulations on keeping so busy... I'm doing interviews with other VO artists, including and particularly some segments on game VO.  I don't think you're in game VO yet?  But either way, good to touch base and I'll be in touch if you are open to interviews.  Also, sometimes we work so hard our lives pass by... be careful of "seasons in the sun" paradox!  Be well my friend...

I'm sure it was you...but this was many months ago, prob should've mentioned that... What I remember was that one of the guys had asked me to record the conference call and I was thrilled to do it because you provided 3 takes of some copy that was a real great example and continues to be so! It could have been at the beginning of this year.  I never knew you before that, and to hear you provide your examples was better than chat!

Creating a Brand - Always improving your image

Posted on November 26, 2011 at 11:44pm 0 Comments

For the very select few, it's job after job after job... in the studio almost all day every day. Those in the next slightly larger group are those who are fortunate enough to just stay busy but get lots and lots of auditions so you still stay pretty booked in the industry. Then there are those in the much larger group who book a gig every once in a while and do not get an enormous flow of auditions streaming into your e-mail or by other means but you still very much want to make your mark in…


Staying afloat during slow times

Posted on October 11, 2011 at 6:09pm 2 Comments

I'm not nearly as busy as I have been these last few weeks. But I'm managing to float by. One thing I have tried very hard to learn is how to get by during droughts. I have had to get a couple of check advances and/or title loan every once in a while to get by til paydays arrive. I try not to borrow more than a couple hundred dollars and immediately pay them completely off when I get paid. The best way not to lose your head is to pre-plan when you're supposed to be receiving checks. If you…


First slow week all summer

Posted on August 15, 2011 at 3:11am 0 Comments

For once "getting my big break" actually means the opposite of what I would normally want it to mean. I got my first big break from work this past week. I've spent so much time in the studio lately that I haven't had time to do much else. Every time I try to leave my house to go to the store or go hang out with my wife or take the kids out or whatever, my cell rings and I'm doing a u-turn and heading back to my home studio again. After doing as many as 6 sessions and 3 union…


Just when all hope seems lost...

Posted on May 7, 2011 at 12:22am 2 Comments

I have had a very slow couple of months and I had all but given up hope. I was starting to look up jobs in the paper and on-line. I had already broke the news to my wife that I was going back to regular employment. I just didn't have enough savings to make it another month without a paycheck. Then all of the sudden the floodgates just opened up. I have been busy for several weeks non-stop with work. I have worked on over a half dozen trailers for movies and tv series on DVD... even a…
