My first trip to VO Atlanta

Phew. Well, my very first VO Atlanta has come and gone. Now that a few weeks have passed, I’ve finally caught up on sleep enough to reflect on it all and write down my thoughts about my experience as a first timer. Hopefully it will help other voice actors who...

A Day in the Life of a Voiceover Actor/Mom

When people find out what I do for a living, their first reaction is “Wow! That’s so cool!” Then they look down at the two adorable little boys I have in tow and ask, “how do you find the time to do all that with the kids?” The answer? It’s...

ISDN, ipDTL, i-what?

When you're building your voice over business and trying to set up your home studio, one of the most confusing things you'll stumble upon is the subject of ISDN. You may hear other voice actors talking about terms like ipDTL, Source Connect, Telos Zephyrs...what language are they speaking?!? Well, I...

Agency Representation

I am proud to state that I am now officially represented by AB2 Talent in San Francisco! This is exciting, as I've heard great things about them, and I am on the roster with some voice talents that I respect and admire. Looking forward to working with them!  

REVIEW: Voicezam Demo System

I recently had the opportunity to try out a fairly new service called Voicezam, and wanted to share my experiences with it. Voicezam was created by former agency producer Bob Merkel after he kept getting frustrated having to listen all the way through talent's demos to maybe hear the one...

Braiiiinnnsss!

It's always fun to get to see my voice in action, and even more fun to get to hear myself kicking zombie butt! 🙂 I just found out that a game I voiced a character in, Contagion, has recently been released. It's available on Steam for the PC. I play...

New online course on Breaking Into Voiceovers!

I always get asked "How do you get into voiceovers?" Well, that requires a long, detailed answer that I don't really think I can do justice in a short reply. So I created a whole video course series that teaches you how to break into the world of voiceovers! It...

My Review of the Kaotica Eyeball

One of the big problems I've been noticing while recording an audiobook vs. my usual shorter copy is the fact that I get interrupted by outside noise pretty frequently. I can often hear lawnmowers, the dogs next door, thumping bass music in someone's garage, and noisy trucks passing by on...

My first audiobook: Part 4 – Oh no! The plague!!!

Just when I had escaped the evil cricket and gotten back on track.... I'm starting to wonder if recording a book called "Virulent" was tempting fate, haha. When my infant son started sniffling and then developed a nasty fever early last week, I started to worry. While snuggling him and...

My first audiobook: Part 3. Jiminy Murder

(Read Parts 1 and 2 if you missed them.) Yesterday, since my husband was home for the weekend, I thought it would be a great opportunity to knock out a bunch of recording. The plan was that he would take the dog and the baby on a long walk, so...

My first audiobook: Part 2, time to record!

Read Part 1 here! Now that I finally finished reading the book (so exciting! Can't wait to read the next one and see what happens next!) and making character and pronunciation notes, I'm ready to record! The first thing I did was to take a good look at my recording...

My first audiobook: Part 1, Doing the Research

I just booked my very first audiobook narration job through ACX! 🙂 The idea of narrating an audiobook is both exciting and a little daunting. On one hand, I am super excited to dive into a story and get to play all the characters. Acting is something I tremendously enjoy,...
