For years, my husband, Mike, has been begging me to invest in a top-tier sound room for my voice-over business. According to him, a business owner should invest 10% into their business each year. He says that, but I think he’s just tired of my grouchiness. What can I say? There are only so many leaf blowers, barking dogs, and idling trucks, a voice talent can handle. Either way, he was right.

Breath is vital.
In life, it sustains us.
In voice-over, it gives our chords flexibility.
As a voice actor, it is easy to get anxious while reading copy. How does this director want me to sound? Did I interpret the copy correctly? I’ve got to nail this! Before you know it, you are ten takes in and your chords have a death-grip on the copy. It’s so hard to work with all that vocal pressure. Relax. Continue reading “VO Tip Friday: Remember to Breathe”
This Easter is a special one for our family. Glen, our beloved 18-month-old, is at the age where he can independently jump into the fun. He was only 8-months-old last Easter so we basically carried him from egg-to-egg while his cousins zipped around us. And while everyone else searched for prize eggs, Glen had the best time snuggling with Mom and Dad and giggling at all the fun. Life was simple. But I have a funny feeling that this Easter Mike and I will be racing to keep up. Yep, Easter will certainly blow his mind, as if Christmas hadn’t done that already! From his good morning Easter basket to the family egg hunt, from the Easter piñata to our family confetti egg war…
Glen will have a blast!
When asked what we’ll bring to the table this year, I decided on something sweet that would not demand a lot of time or effort. Welcome, Lemon Crinkles! Continue reading “Lemon Crinkle Cookies”

As a self-employed creative in charge of a business and a household, I am always interested in new ways to trim our monthly budget and keep as much of our family’s income in the bank as I can. This week, our family officially cut-the-cord and switched to streaming television. Ahhhh… so liberating! Another way I like to keep our monthlies in check is by giving less-and-less to Uncle Sam each quarter. Continue reading “VO Tip FRIDAY: Medical Tax Deductions”
I am the biggest fan of copy that inspires a VO talent to go off-script. Straight-up call letters won’t do the trick, but fun, playful copy certainly will.
