I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
Voice Actor, Copy Writer
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I'm a professional voice actor based in the Pacific Northwest. I had no idea how the voice over industry had grown since I left in late 80’s. I was a production director for two stations then, at the time when voice work was limited to TV and radio. Writing copy and producing commercials was a hoot, one of the most crazy but enjoyable periods of my life. After taking a look at the direction terrestrial radio was heading, I got out and moved on to tech were I spent over 15 years testing software. A good chunk of that time was at Microsoft banging on code for the Macintosh and Windows operating systems. It was an interesting job, one that I fell into by accident. I was a round peg that fit into a square hole, and not very well at that. Testing software is not overly creative but the pay was satisfying. I was swept away from Microsoft and became an Amazonian. While at Amazon.com I wrote copy, played with web analytics, created e-mail campaigns, hobnobbed with vendors and manufactures. I got in the pool again and took on two voice over projects. The first was multiple episodes of AmazonWire, a podcast that featured interviews with authors, musicians and celebrities. After that, I voiced a number of book descriptions for the website WindowShop.com. Both of these were freebies and I found myself wanting to do more and more voice over work and less and less of what I was hired to do. Not a good thing. I ended up totally bailing on voice over work in favor of focusing on what I was paid to do. I got out of the pool. Sad. OK, this is were it gets better. I left Amazon and took some badly needed time off to get my soul aligned with my brain so that I could recognize and understand my passions. The VO water looked temping and that’s when I realized what my number one passion with a bullet was. So, I’m in the pool again and I just wanted to say, hey. Based on what I see on the BB, there are a number of talented swimmers that I hope to get to know better. Right now, I’m on shallow end but gravitating to deeper waters. Thanks for giving me a place to swim.
