Has any one ever told you 'You should do Voice-Over?'. So many people have been told this and mistakenly think that a nice voice is all you need to work, but 'HUGE spoiler alert' it is NOT. You need to have a solid, easy-to-use, 'go-to' structure of techniques that you can use over and over again so that your reads pop every time, and I will show you how to do this. I don't waste half of the course talking about microphones and which gear to buy. Why not? Because a.) that is the easiest part of all of this(***read a little further down in a sec) and b.) even if you have the most expensive gear, if your reads suck you won't book it anyway. c.) you can learn about mic placement and editing in your manuals or on youtube for FREE. The truth is that you don't need the best, most expensive and amazing gear to book V.O. work (although it doesn't hurt to have awesome gear!) but you DO need reads that pop, and that is why I created this course.
Sometimes all you need is an iPhone or smartphone to practice and/or book a job, and I show you how to turn bland and noisy phone recordings into recordings that are punchy and awesome. Another thing that Voice-Over 101 Plus has that no other course has, is the "Performance Trainer", a practice tool that makes you stronger and stronger every time that you use it, and you can use it through your smartphone and/or tablet so you can practice anytime and practically anywhere with it!
My goal is to help you de-mystify how to get great Commercial and Animation/Video Game voice-over reads and to make it fun for you at the same time. That is what Voice-Over 101 Plus is all about. Plus, there is a risk-free 30-day money-back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. It's time to unleash your inner Voice-Over acting power right now, so try Voice-Over 101 Plus today!
P.S. - I am going to be adding more content to the course with time, so those things will automatically be included in your course as well. If there are any topics you want covered that can help you,I want you to let me know.

I am a lifelong student, teacher and coach. I believe that we never stop learning and growing. I believe that success is something that is different for each person and that our individuality and character is our power, not our money, possessions or popularity. We have the choice every day to make our lives better, and it’s never too late to start pursuing your dreams...
Growing up in Springfield Virginia, I first developed my love for imagination and creativity when I first saw Star Wars as a young boy. Movies and music were so much a part of my life that I decided to learn as much as I could about the many sides of entertainment. I was forbidden from acting as a kid, in spite of being offered a contract at a talent agency. That stuck with me for a long time and when I was an adult I decided to pursue my creative dreams. I did find a way to teach myself how to play multiple instruments and began playing music and writing songs in bands. My journey of learning about music and production took me to both New York and Florida where I earned two associates degrees. Once I graduated I immediately left for Los Angeles California.
My first paid job in Los Angeles was as a dialogue recordist on some of the most popular animated shows from the early 2000's from Warner Brothers, Universal and others. It was there that I discovered what Voice-Acting was and how I wanted to be doing that on the other side of that glass. It was a great learning experience but the creative side of myself needed to be set free to fly... I left that studio to work as an actor on stage and on-camera, taking the very long and indirect road to becoming a Voice-Actor. It was an exciting and difficult time.(The entertainment business is not what most people think ). I did plays which won some awards and secured a great agent winning co-star and guest star roles for such shows as ABC's "Son's and Daughter's" and WB's "the Gilmore Girls" .
I am also a songwriter/musician and currently have original music currently running on such TV shows as "Say Yes to the Dress", "Tiny House Nation" , "Randy to the Rescue", NASCAR and more.
I have always had a passion for helping others and became certified as a Holistic Life Coach and an NLP pratctitioner some years back. I have always had a deep connection to spirit and learned that I had the gift of Intuition, that when tapped into it, could help me navigate through challenging experiences.
I began working at the SAG Foundation’s Voice-Over Lab to help myself and others develop their strength as a voice-actors and starting noticing that the people I helped started booking jobs. This lead me to creating what is now the the best-selling Udemy course: Voice-Over 101 Plus to help people book national commercials, animated series, video games, e-learning, audiobooks and live-announcing. Clients have booked jobs for companies like: Disney, DreamWorks Animation,GoDaddy, and Maybelline just to name a few. It’s all of the information I wish I had when first starting out in Voice-Over.
I am currently represented as a Voice-Over artist in Los Angeles with DPT and in Texas at TAG. I am also the creator of the self-empowerment programs:"The System of Strength" and "Rebel Confidence" and "Develop your Intuition" among others.
I enjoy working as a one-on-one coach, helping people unleash their inner voice and power.
Some of my Voice-Over bookings include:

Pokemon Masters (as Wallace)
Beyblade Burst Turbo (as Count Nightfell)
