Sam started working in the trenches of broadcasting as an airman in the USAF stationed in Europe in the early '90s working production for Armed Forces Radio and Television, also known as AFRTS. He received a commendation medal for his work during Operation Desert Storm. Sam then returned to Kansas City and worked extensively as an on camera talent for local television commercials. One, he is proud to say aired during the Superbowl in 1994. His work also included the stage and voicing radio spots while he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Theater from the University of Missouri Kansas City.

Sam turned down the offer and moved to Los Angeles. Out of 3500 applicants, Sam was one of 10 chosen to take part in the University of California-Los Angeles' coveted Master of Fine Arts Program in Theater, Film, and Television Performance. For the next three years he worked with the finest teachers and actors in the nation learning the nuances of the Stanislavski method of acting. The program also concentrated heavily of voice and speech as well as script analysis and character creation and development. Upon graduation, Sam found his niche in the world of commercials as well as going on the road with Crown City Theater Company where he honed his skills as a Shakespearean actor.

Testimonials

"In the industry for Voice Over talent, it can be a challenge to find that certain someone with just that...talent. For the 'need it yesterday' experience we had with our biggest client, we had to deliver a high quality brand essence piece and find a talent that captured the true essence of the brand with little prep time. Luckily, Sam was able to listen, understand and deliver a top notch read that we're still getting compliments on today."

Brian McInerney, Head of Production.

Barnstorming, Inc.

"Sam Williamson narrated my novel, “The Last Nephilim”, and he really brought it to life.
Before casting him, I interviewed over thirty talents and what put him over the top was that in addition to possessing a rich clear voice, he suffused each character with personality. The latter is likely a by-product of his of his impressive acting background. I thoroughly enjoyed listening his rendition of my book and very few do-overs and edits were required to get a great product!"

William Guy, PhD MD

Author of The Last Nephilim

“We used Sam for a project, and he did an excellent job. Not only was Sam’s quality of work great, but he also provided us minor, client-requested revisions in a timely manner to help us keep the project on track.”
