I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Craig primarily works a performer for live events and film/TV projects and as an acting/singing coach, but has slowly been booking VO work on the side since his first voice gig in 1998. He also is the founder of an "edutainment" reading program for children that helps teach the craft of storytelling and how to create character voices (website forthcoming). Craig has taken VO training workshops and classes with Bob Bergen (2x), Bill Holmes, James Alburger, Penny Abshire, Richard Horvitz, Scott Hilley, MaryLynn Wissner, September Day/Bob Carter, Susan Berkley, Tony Gonzales and mentoring/coaching from Pat Fraley. Since 1999, Craig has been publishing Voice Actors in the News, an entertainment blog for voice actor fans and professionals. Craig also hosts the Viva VO Atlanta! group here on VoiceoverUniverse, and The Voice Actor Appreciation Society on Yahoo Groups and Facebook.
