HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Mentored by Johnny Olson, I've worked as announcer and audience warm-up on game shows since 1990, playing second banana to Dick Clark, Wink Martindale, Ryan Seacrest, Chuck Woolery, Ray Combs, Todd Newton, and Howie Mandel. Working with Bob Barker on "The Price is Right" as fill-in and replacement for Rod Roddy took it all full circle from Johnny O's mentoring.
While I've had some success in the promo and commercial worlds, that work has always been secondary to the passion for the live-to-tape game shows.

I know you’ve been a member of Voiceover Universe for some time, but I wanted to introduce one of our groups to you.
I hope you'll check out and join a group called MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT. It's a group dedicated to discussing ways we can market ourselves - what works; what doesn't. You’ll find some very interesting ideas and concepts there! And we would appreciate your input. Click here for the link: MARKETING FOR FUN AND PROFIT!
Thanks for your time! I trust our paths will cross soon!
You might want to go to Randy's book site, www.voiceforhirebook.net and sign up for the email updates. That way, you'll get all the info on the release, etc as it comes. You can actually go to Amazon now and pre-order the book - for 30% off even!!! It's due out in October.
We're having a HUGE launch here in Fort Myers on Sat. Oct 11. If you're in FL, you should come! :) Seriously, it's going to be big - we have several sponsors lined up for giveaways like jewelry and a Vespa scooter, and a band that's going to be playing. It's gonna be a great party!
As for the book, nope, I'd never worked on a book before. But, in my previous life, I was in marketing and did lots of copyediting and proofreading. So I was able to help Randy and Peter with that. It's been a lot of fun working with the editor and the publisher (Random House).
That's so cool that you're announcing The Price is Right in Vegas. We seriously loved the show and had so much fun! Do you know Rich Fields, who announces the TV show? I connected with him a while back b/c he's a University of Florida grad, as am I. I thought that was pretty cool. Anyway, I sure would love to meet you live and in person... will definitely let you know if I'm in Vegas!! I will be in LA in August for the VOICE conference, but no trips to Vegas planned as of now.
THANKS for your reply and have a great weekend!!! Caryn
