HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I have been in the voice over world for almost twenty years, ten of them in Australia and the rest in New York City. I'm the GPS Girl - my speaking voice is in millions of cars worldwide telling people where to go right now! I'm the voice of Telstra's Talking Text in Australia, Mobile One phones in Singapore, and have been booked for hundreds of TV, Radio, Cinema and commercial spots for every product you can imagine. I have even done a voice over for a car wash!

Hi Karen, Looks like we have a bit in common. I am the voice of the Prius and some other systems. LOL
Accents are a plus in my realm!
I respect you are a coach but I bet we are in different universes.
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!
I hope you'll check out and join a group that we started not too long ago called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. 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! Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
Hey Karen, Great to see you here. Saw you on "Sunrise", mate and thought to myself now there's a familia face i haven't seen for far too long. I hope you and your family are well and flourishing.

Love, Sunshine & Smiles...
