Jon, you're a huge inspiration. God Bless, brother!
Congrats on your move to LA! Best of luck out there bud. Hope to be out there joining you one day!
Congratulations on keeping so busy... I'm doing interviews with other VO artists, including and particularly some segments on game VO. I don't think you're in game VO yet? But either way, good to touch base and I'll be in touch if you are open to interviews. Also, sometimes we work so hard our lives pass by... be careful of "seasons in the sun" paradox! Be well my friend...
We met at VAU during one of the conference calls. It's rare that I get to listen, so glad you were there that day. I know you recently were added to a great agency's roster... Hope you are doing great, your wife and your kids too. Since you had your August break, I've been swamped... Stop taking breaks!!! Kidding - be well!
