"Penny's story made me think about a quote in the book "The Artist's Way". Someone wanting to learn an instrument but feeling insecure about her age said something like, "Do you know how OLD I'll be once I become…"
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I am new to the VO industry. My profession is a Speech Therapist in Elementary Schools. But since I was little, I have always been told I do very good "voices" and can mimic voices well. So I took my first class with Marc Cashman in L.A. and absolutely loved it and want to do it professionally once I have developed my skill. I took the character voices and animation workshop with the wonderful Bob Bergen and recently completed the 8-week advanced VO workshop with James Alburger and Penny Abshire.
English; some Spanish; some Afrikaans (I'm from South Africa and still have the South African accent), some Hebrew.
Hey Lisa - Great to get to know you in that cyber way - I'm in LA - you must visit me next time you're up here. And Marc and I are doing a voice over intensive weekend next month - should be a blast. It's called the 3 VoiceKeteers and it's listed on the Events page on this forum. Cheers - Vanessa
