A VO's Journey is about helping new voiceover artists grow their business by listening to my journey to becoming a full-time voice actor. I have been an actor, coach, director, and teacher for over 20 years. I started two years ago in the voice-over industry and wanted to create a way to document my journey so other voice over actors could benefit from it. Voiceover is now my life, and I love every moment of it.

Are You Gaining Or Losing Voice Over Business Because Of Your Production Value I have listened to so many samples and demos from all sorts of voice actors and I can tell you that the biggest thing that separates them, is the production value of their performance.
