Lyn, thankyou! I appreciate your feedback. Lucky you, to be in this biz early! I discovered it as I approached retirement from day-jobs in community sector, so it's a steep learning curve but huge fun. Lovely people on sites such as VO and Voices.com share their knowledge - a great help as the industry doesn't have quite the same buzz here in UK. All best wishes to you - may your Snowball keep rolling. Howard.
He's a Dogue de Bordeaux (aka French Mastiff). He's the "Turner and Hooch" breed. If you visit my website www.hersmoothvoice.com and click on his picture, you can hear a narrative about his breed. He's alot of dog, alot of fun, and alot of poop.
Thanks for the compliments!
Glad to see our little NorCal VO group growing (I'm in the East Bay). How is it going for you so far with VO? I think Kerry said it best. the VO community is the nicest, most uplifting group of folks I've ever met. Best of luck to you!

I started taking classes in the Spring of 2008 and come from neither an acting or broadcast background.
I've only been able to take weekend classes due to my job. I started with the introductory weekend seminar with Al Bedrosian. I've taken a couple of classes with Thom Pinto, and Samantha Paris, I've also taken Improv, Scene Study, Mic technique, and a couple of character classes with Bob Bergen. I also attend Voiceone if I can't get the class I need on the weekends at Voicetrax.
I do do plan on attending Voice 2010 because I want to cast my education net a little wider. It is the perfect forum to screen potental VO teachers and coaches.
