I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
From lying through my teeth in order to get my first radio job (I told my new G.M. I was founder/proprietor of WCLO-AM...It was true. I just didn't tell him I was twelve at the time,) to studying v/o in Noho with a mind-altered radio star from the '70s, I flap my lips daily in order to pay my daughters' tuition and keep my wife in second-hand Hollywood ball-gowns. I had the good fortune of being cast as "Flint," in the original Sunbow/Hasbro TV Cartoon and have reprised the role in episodes of Robot Chicken, and Family Guy. I'm "Ambassador Donnell Udina" in Mass Effect 1,2, & 3. It's been a great ride down the v/o highway and it continues today (I tell ya, there's no accounting for taste.)

Just wanted to introduce myself ... I was in attendance at Don's Memorial this week and particurarly enjoyed your beautiful words and support of your dear friend. As a matter of fact, it was the BEST speech of the evening. I was blessed to have met Don in 07 who in turned helped/mentored me with my commercial and trailer demos. Those two reels are a result of Don's suggestions/tweeking if you will. We had kept in touch via email and he had just sent me an email mid August to say hello and ask how things were going.
It's been a bitter sweet week as our daughter gave birth to her fist child/our first grandchild ... but I DON'T feel like a grandfather. Maybe the kid should call me "Coach"! Anyway, be well and look forward to our paths crossing one of these fine days ....

I have to tell you- You are a master storyteller-you had me riveted on Tuesday evening. The whole evening really took my breath away-
I arrive Sunday the 21st and will be around for a week. Hope to see you then!
I've found that there aren't many substitutes for a real ball peen, especially a mic. Yeah, I use the 416 as well, I just picked up a Shure desk mic though for my mobile set-up. I thought it looked like the demolition tool in your picture.
On a side- note. I just signed up to take a short course with Wally Burr, I trust you know him. He's coming to Seattle in October!
You're The Bomb!!! [really]...glad you like my stuff ;-) Since I just relocated to Miami, no I don't really know any agents here yet. I will do my homework and see who I discover. If you know any good ones it would be great if you shared that info=)
Bill, you have made my day, week, month....well you get the idea...LOL
Really, your critique, comments, advice and compliments mean so much to me! Thank you!!!
I am getting right on it, as you read this message. I'm based in Miami, FL and yes this is one of the main things I do for a living=) I am working and looking for an agent too.
I think you covered the most important aspects, however, at the very end of my demo list there's one episode of an audio drama that I was cast in called Red Monday...have a listen...I play the role of Dana [the mom of Daniel and Gabriel].
Not sure if you listened to any of the Jamster TV spots...and there's an animation I did also, where I impersonate Laila Ali in a parody of American Gladiators...
And thanks for the heads up on my website...it's actually under construction now so I removed it for now.
Thank you again...
Is that a Shure mic on your desk? If so, how do you like it?
Sending you lots of love today!
