Christopher Dumbreski came from humbling beginnings. When he was a young child way back in the day he had a huge desire to be a voice actor on cartoons. Finding he had a knack for being able to produce interesting voices, he was going to make this dream a reality. Unfortunately he got scared of the idea of working in such a competitive industry and quickly abandoned it going through several career ideas after the fact, video game programmer, graphic designer, website design, etc. but eventually landing in the IT field fixing computers in a local school district. Later in life Christopher became a fan of podcasts, specifically The Order 66 Podcast on the D20 Radio Network where he learned all about the ins and outs of Star Wars Saga Edition Role Playing Game, as well as how to podcast. Getting the idea he decided with the help from his friend and co-host The Pseudonym, to create their own podcast The Real Basement Dwellers, where they review games you play with friends, as well as other relevant geeky news, and what do you know it was successful enough to join the D20 Radio network and is still running to this day.
His love of podcasting lead to the purchase of better recording equipment, and to warrant spending an obscene amount of money on it thought it best to do something else with it. Eventually he found Librivox, a website that allows you to volunteer to record public domain audiobooks. Being that many people have stated how he had a great reading voice and had the ability to really convey emotion and humor in a unique way, especially when playing Cards Against Humanity, he felt it best to share his talent with the world even if he wasn't getting any money for it. Volunteering for several projects and continuing producing his podcast, guest on the show Greg Stolze, author of several pen and paper RPGs such as Reign, Better Angels, etc. Referred Christopher to ACX where he immediately joined and started auditioning for professional audiobooks. He is now trying to make a name for himself in his spare time as a professional Audiobook Narrator, something he has always wanted to do since childhood but only finally got around to doing now, at the age of 27. It just goes to show, you are never too old to follow your dreams, for they will always remain just dreams until you do something about it! He draws major inspiration from James Marsters who narrates the Dresden Files books.

"I tried for a few weeks to hire several of the known voice actors on ACX. I thought I'd get lucky and snag one of them, thus lifting my little book to grander status. I really can't tell you how pleased I am that it was you, and not one of them, that answered my ad. I am certain no one would have been as willing to perfect this work as you have been. I've said this before, but you gave me such a compliment every time you humbly corrected the recordings. I know I asked a great deal of you, yet you never once complained. You are correct when you say that this experience will benefit you greatly down the road, but this is because of your effort, not my demands. You chose to make this as great as it is, and it is now great. No matter where this goes now, you've given me a great gift, and I thank you."Kyle W. Russell
