Nice! So do you speak this way in everyday life? Lucky for your wife! So, how the heck do you get started in the VoiceOver biz? As a teacher I've always been interested in this possibility.

Hi Shawn,
Thanks so much for your kind words. This piece is actually pretty close to my normal voice... except for the bit of extra gravity and emphasis that narrations usually call for. This particular project just landed me a series of radio and TV commercial narrations for Smith & Wesson... a really great break!
Hmmm, that would be my "almost wife." My fiancé and I split a couple of years ago, so I'm back to single status... she was a huge supporter of my getting started in this business though!
As for the how... well that could take up pages!! In short, it starts with putting together a demo, pulling together a profile (voice description, any experience, etc.), setting up a website and trying out a few of the "free" freelance sites for jobs, before joining what are commonly known as Pay-to-Play sites such as http://www.voices.com, http://www.bodalgo.com/index_english.php and so on.

This page on my website has a bunch of helpful links:

There's also a ton of voice over discussion groups on Linkedin, if you happen to be there.
Thanks again Shawn and best of luck in your new venture!!

I appreciate your willingness to share your knowledge about your specialty. Thank You! Here's a bit of female knowledge for you: When meeting women, don't go for online dating... They need to hear your voice! Play to our strengths, right?
