The Boy at the Window

Early on in my radio career, weekday afternoons at 3, I would enter the control room in the original KTSA building located at 4050 Eisenhauer Road in San Antonio, Texas, to do what I have always loved: radio.
Around 3:40 pm a vision would appear at the studio window that I have never forgotten. As I turned to look out, there, amid a field of Texas…

Step Up Your Voice Over Performance with Your "Non-Verbal Toolkit"

Ever since we learned to read and write we've believed that all of speech can somehow be condensed down to words on a piece of paper. But of course that's not really true. Much of speech communication is what I call "Non-Verbal". It's the famous "it's not what you say, it's how you say it."

I'm sure you've sent an email to someone and had them take it the wrong way. Maybe you say something in a joking way and somehow it hurts their feelings. This is because we can't include the verbal…

Spanish the second language in USA - Espanol, la segunda lengua en USA

¿Es necesario divulgar el Español correcto? o debe dejarse que los medios de comunicación sigan usando modismos nacionales y "Spanglish"?

Muy pronto el número de personas que maneja el idioma Español en USA llegará a 60 millones.


Ahora ya los locutores en Español comienzan a ser tomados en cuenta por los colegas de Estados Unidos. Este año la Convención de Locutores en Atlanta (Marzo 11-15 de 2015) tiene un día dedicado…

Hiding Behind The Mask

My favorite time of year is upon us yet again.  For those of you new to my world, I love Halloween the most because I find most people more ‘themselves’.  If you go out for the evening, or on the streets with the kids, pay attention to how much more approachable people are.   I truly find people come out of their shell because they are behind a mask for protection.  Just like when people have a little drinky poo to allow them to feel more comfortable at a venue or to get up and…

Help! I need some direction!

The time has come to take my voice-over career to the next level.

I've been existing for years with a day job, using my VO career as a supplement.  

The two major clients I've had, literally fell into my lap.  I didn't seek them; they heard a clip on my blog and contacted me.

I still get a regular paycheck from one of those clients, for which I record phone surveys.

Now, I no longer have a day job, but I have a lot of talent that I want to put to use!
