I LOVE VOICE-OVER
(Can you tell?)
I've always been drawn to voices. And the art of telling a story just with a voice, no image, no video, not in person, is so magical to me. Because the voice can carry an image to the hearer's mind. A voice can contain truth and emotion and history and magic even without seeing the speaker. To be that magical requires the most beautiful skills a human can develop - empathy, imagination, presence and courage.
I started my own voice over career in 2014 as a bold move toward a secret childhood dream. And now I get to pass that permission and knowledge on to others. If you have even a spark of a desire to play with your voice, I say go for it. And if voice over is more of a requirement for your business or job then I hope you find what I did, the ultimate place to play, imagine, and create.
