I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Hello, my name is Joshua Taylor. I’m a 34 year old male from Youngstown, Ohio. I am a father of two beautiful children and have been married for 8 years. Working in the restaurant industry the past 15 years, I use my voice often. It is a critical tool everyday
where I wait tables in a fine dining atmosphere. I’ve found that communicating at each table is like adlibbing on stage in a play. Every costumer has similar needs, similar outcome, but ultimately a different expectation of how they should be served. I use tone to express how each individual feels they need to be addressed. My register is low, I’m a natural bass to a low tenor. I can use a calm tone that will calm the most uptight diner, or I simply lift my tone to match the more care free guest. Working in management for a long stretch, I didn’t have the amount of time to spend with guest that I do now. I’ve found that when spending time with my guest I ultimately receive the same comment over and over. “You have a great voice! Do you work in radio?” I noticed the comment being repeated often after the first year at my current job. So I went to a studio, where I made my first demo. It was rough, and I noticed I lacked certain training. That’s what I’ve been working on since. Everyday that I work, I tweak my “performance” at each table. I think of how a director might have me do something different from one table to the next. Now I ask you, give me the chance to perform for you! I have a “can do, will do attitude”, and I will ad a great deal of professionalism to your project! To contact me, you can email me at kjswoob@gmail.com or call directly to my phone at 1-330-207-4401.

Hi Joshua!
