I WORK IN THE VOICE OVER INDUSTRY AS A(N)
HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
My first paid gig was narrating a recruitment video for my alma mater, Oakwood University, in 1991. A decade later, while living in Portland, OR, I pursued voice over full-time in between a TV and Radio gig. I bought myself some gear, software, built a custom DAW PC and went to work for Bob Ancheta at internetjock.com. I also managed to book my own local and regional radio/tv spots in the Pacific Northwest. But I didn't stop there. I also trained with actor/casting director Elaine Clark of San Francisco, actor/casting director Rick Zieff of Hollywood, Della Cole of Your Act Acting Studios in Atlanta. Recently, I have been lucky enough to train with the legendary and premiere VO talent Randy Thomas. I am also currently training with automotive ad genius and the founder of the Dallas Voice Acting Meet Up Group, Cliff Zellman. I also own and operate Murphy Media Group, LLC, a social, digital and mobile media marketing company. Cheers!
