I've been a poet and writer--and teacher of writing--for over 20 years and was also in the VO market around 15 years ago when you had to pound the pavement and go to maybe five or six auditions a day! I loved it, but I didn't have the time or--at that period in my life--the kind of experience (VO and LIFE) one really needs to succeed. I've mellowed w/age, I think and now I'm in better tune. Someone once described my voice--the "experience" of hearing it--as listening to someone gargle with gasoline. And in the years I was auditioning, it was considered the voice of damage. There were a lot of us then. It was in fashion to sound like that. It was a damaged time. But I like to think my voice has become something more over the years of training and curiosity--that it's become a voice of romance and comedy and sophistication. In other words--a voice that holds both joy and sorrow--kept alive by talking and singing and reading poems out loud.
