I think that I won't be able to even consider keeping up with a blog. It's not that I don't write a lot - I do that - but I find that I am responding to posts - or updating the blog for a class I teach - not creating new topics. So until I figure out how to work that into my day, I think I will just read and respond to posts and blogs as they appear on my monitor.
But - to close the circle - an update on my mom - she is doing pretty well! Knee replacement has healed up completely.… Continue
..So, in addition to studying and working with my acting, I started a booth. I did not start taking pictures till I had the bottom built, but I think the narrative thread is still there. I'll post a few more as I move it further along. I got some plans from DAWBOX, but I have modified them quite a bit. They were an excellent springboard, though, and well worth the 50 bucks.
Mine is 4x6', has a window on the right side, will be carpeted, (I have a burgundy carpet piece, but I may go… Continue
Let's see next January I will have been away from radio 2 years. That was my career for 10. I always felt like I knew it so well and that I should be able to be an IMAGING VOICE!
However up until now not much has come my way. My bread and sometimes butter is in Commercial work.
However recently I met up with a voice talent named Jeremy Ryan. That's what he does mostly. I sent him some dry tracks and low and behold the demos sound great. We have teamed up and hopefully 2009… Continue
I got sent this from FOX...but alas...I suck a video editing. They give you all the clips etc to make up a spot. Just thought you guys might be interested in this.
Cheers and comments are very welcome
PS...you could make up your own trailer for this too

As usual, my friend Philip Banks knocks it "out of the park" (to use a US sport analogy) with his blog post of 21 October 2008 asking you to imagine yourself standing in front of Simon Cowell getting ready to perform.

I have just added new versions of my two commercials demos and a new narration demo to integrate some new material.
It's a bit daunting because I have parked my demos on quite a few internet sites, each of which has somewhat different protocols.
Now my VU page is up to date along with my personal website and all the sites around the world.
OK seekers -- come and get me!!!
There’s an interesting article by John Higgins on the John and Muriel Higgins Home page. The article is entitled, “I Speak Analogue, You Hear Digital” and you can find it at the following link: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/wordscape/wordlist/analogue.html
Check out the digital speaking test and the supra-segmentals section. The latter section relates to how pausing can change the meaning of a sentence. The article contains some good practice materials.
I have been getting some great invitations to hot tub and butter and rice parties as result of lising my equipment as 8 inches. I should have been more specific. I meant my UVULA.
Hope this clears up a terrible misundertanding, although I have made some swell friends in the interim.
I've been so busy "helping the Halloween Haunter" put together his episodes of the Halloween Haunt, I've forgotten to alert you to the presence of them. The Halloween Haunt is a short podcast which surveys Halloween traditions, general spooky things associated with Halloween and classic gothic and horror poetry and stories. It's in its third year and is the number one Halloween podcast on iTunes and can also be found at… Continue

"Whether you're a seasoned pro or just starting out, I cannot highly enough recommend Voice For Hire by Randy Thomas and Peter Rolfe. This invaluable book addresses EVERY subject you need to know and more about the world of voice overs. I continue to utilize this book as my personal study guide and refer to it on a consistent basis. Clearly, Randy and Peter's sound advice AND experience will bring your game to the next level."
The only singing impression that I can do (other than Willy Nelson) is Neil Diamond. I thought it might be funny if Neil sang some songs that were ...let's say ...a little out of his element.
I am not personally a huge fan of the Hip/Hop genre ...though with three teenagers ...I have been inadvertently over-exposed. I must admit ...after playing around with this clip ...I have a new respect for the hip and for the hop. And it made me realize that I am neither…Continue
Julies post got me thinking about how close we are all to life changing and ending moments. I wrote this for a online magazine awhile ago. SOME of you have read this story, please excuse me, but I thought I'd share just one more time...What you're about to read is 100% TRUE....
I decided to leave a 25 year radio career and work following my dream as a Stand-Up Comic. Things were going quite well, but every time I turned around, businesses were asking me to voice their…Continue
This past week, Voice Over Experts hit 65 episodes.
I want to thank all of you for listening and subscribing over the past year. When we started this podcast in June of 2007, we kicked off our show with Marc Cashman, a gentleman who many of you know as Ask The Voice Cat through various publications including a blog hosted at Voices.com. Since then, he has been joined by a number of his colleagues and peers from around the world, giving back to the community in a very special and… Continue
