    1. I feel like I just woke up. I started in Voice Over by chance when I took an acting course for the fun of it. On the way into the studio a fellow with a studio asked if I was doing voice over as he liked my voice. I replied “Voice over what in H&&& is that ? ” He ahd me to his studio and I did a couple and enjoyed it. I have been working on voices for 2 years now but just came across these great webinars… Man colour me Christopher COlumbus on a voyage of discovery Thank you Voices.com these webinars are amazing..Well organized and now as I turn shy and “RETIRING” I will be out of my wife’s hair 🙂 A new world has opened up thanks Voices.com 🙂
