Wow – I did not anticipate a five-month hiatus from updating this blog. Good intentions as a paving material and all that. But there were several life moments, health concerns, and public commitments that ended up taking precedent, and I accepted that voiceover had to take a back seat for a while. It’s good to be back
I did end up getting some VO work during that time, including three more TV spots as the voice of Tony The Tailor men’s clothing store in Charleston WV. I also picked up a radio gig, volunteering my time at Columbus non-profit jazz station. I started providing voiceovers for their commercial spots (technically referred to as “underwriting”, just like you hear the announcer say on PBS), plus I now host a 2-hour program one day a week at the station, playing music only by artists from Ohio, more so from central Ohio.
I’ve continued to attend my monthly Meet-up group for Central Ohio Voiceover Pros, and continue to soak up as much learning and info as I can.

I hope all of you are enjoying the Christmas season in 2017, and I wish you much health and success in 2018. In January I’ll resume my “travel voices” post, starting with Buffalo NY where my father is from, and look at a few other locales that are important to me as well.
In addition, I’ll be testing out some new looks for this website and hopefully make it easier on your eyes.
Until then, keep giving thanks for the blessings you enjoy on a daily basis but somehow forget, and keep your best voice forward. Take care.
