HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
I have been working as a voice actor and coach for 16+ years in San Diego, CA. My partner, James R. Alburger, and I own VoiceActing.com and The VoiceActing Academy. I am the author of Demo & Marketing Magic for Voice Actors and I am the co-Executive Producer of VOICE, (The VoiceOver International Creative Experience) which is the only convention specifically designed for voice actors. I am also the VERY proud grandma to three beautiful little girls and one little boy - all under the age of 6. They keep me running, but being a grandma ROCKS! See their pictures below in the slide show! I'm just a "little" proud of them!

I was going to write to you all about VOICE 2008 big success and there you came first.
Just wanted to tell you this: You have done it again, and in great style. Once again many VO people felt more united, made new friends and got new visions. Congratulations, you all deserve it.
I have been “present” in VOICE 2008 by the hands of VO’s blogs, and I felt all the positive energy, the wonder of the new and all the human dimension present in LA, (as I experienced in Las Vegas). Kara’s blog was one that expressed all the wonder using very nice words.
I’m building a pro vocal booth (What a hard time), I am pretty good by now using ProTools and have been doing Spanish voiceover projects from time to time, I’m sure that once I have it all set up I’ll be able to expand my working.
It will a pleasura t take part in the Positive Thinkers group. And yes, I still have your lucky penny in front of my working place.
I am honored to be a part of such great people and wonderful voices. Although I'm new to this industry, I already feel like I'm part of the family. I look forward to learning from you and the rest of the great voice actors on this site.
a true honor to hear from you!

Thank you very much for the warm welcome! As a whole, there isn't a more gratious group of people then those in the VO industry. I hope I can always learn from the examples of those at the top of their game to always be as giving to others as they have been to me.
