HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Lesley Bailey is an award-winning Casting Director, Voiceover Coach, Demo Producer, and Consultant who comes as a highly recommended voiceover coach in the inner circles of the industry. She spent the last fifteen years as the Head of Casting at a major production company in NYC as well as coaching and producing demos. Lesley has consulted at BBDO Worldwide Advertising and has also done freelance voiceover and on-camera casting at some of the top casting companies in the nation such as Donna Deseta Casting and Broadcasters.

Lesley brings out absolute magic in her actors, teaching them to express themselves naturally and honestly while fostering a safe and relaxed atmosphere. Her style focuses on script-analysis and those little "tricks" of the trade that she has gathered over two decades of working with the best producers, directors, writers, agents, and actors in the business. Lesley loves nurturing voiceover stars all across the universe and is delighted that her students get the results they want in their careers.
