2018: A Summary

Plenty of negativity transpired this year. Oh, how easy it would be to focus on the bad. Rather than do that, I’m gonna do my best to reflect on some cool stuff that I was fortunate enough to be a part of this year and just neat things that have happened. I believe I started…

One Of Few Audiobook is NOW AVAILABLE!!!

My first book ever is now available for your beautiful ears! Doing what few can. How fortunate I am. Locators are rare. Only 11 people can access chambers throughout the world. The fourth-dimensional pockets themselves are a mystery. They can hold anything from both known and unknown worlds. With a locator’s ability comes power. A…

Monica Rial Bloopers

Monica Rial voices Vera in the One of Few audiobook. What should have taken one session took two because she’s ridiculous and one of my best friends… Enjoy the random!

Headed To Retail

When I started this whole process, I didn’t know if One of Few would ever be anything other than a writing exercise. After I realized I wanted to move on to the next step, I eventually decided to take the “OH MY GOD, ARE YOU F***ING SERIOUS?!” route by going indie. In addition to self-publishing,…

REEL TALK

I’ve been doing demo reels for about as long as I’ve been doing VO. In the last decade, I have learned a lot both as a studio professional and a voice-over artist. REAL TALK — I reject more demo requests than I accept. The reason why is simple and, for the purpose of this post, I’m…

Soundproofing or Room Tuning: There’s a difference!

If you want to make it in VO, you’re going to need some kind of home setup. You can go all out for a fully-equipped studio, where you can record, edit, mix, etc for full productions. Or it can even be as simple as a laptop and a USB microphone. The technology is there. Why…

Do Re Mi Fa So La TeeDotally

Whether I’m singing or doing voiceover, warming up is important. Everyone has their way of doing it. Personally, I’ve got a soft spot for my old choir & theater warm-ups: “Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do”  “To sit in solemn silence on a dull, dark dock in a pestilential prison with a life-long lock awaiting the sensation…

SaikouCon 2013 Highlights

Another convention? So soon? Tis true, good people of the internet. Last weekend, I went to Breinigsville, Pennsylvania for the first year of SaikouCon! Guests included: Darrel Guilbeau, Jād Saxton, Jessie Pridemore, Greg Houser, Bill Rogers, The D20 Girls, The Slants, and many more!

The More You V.O.

Many before me have answered these questions & others like them: “How do I become a voice actor?” “Got any advice for someone trying to break into the industry?” “Do I need a demo and/or agent?” Yet, despite their best efforts, the inquiries continue. So here is my attempt. Voice Over (or V.O.) is everything…
