My First National Booking
From audition to final recording this VO job was a memorable one. It was my first National booking and I was so proud of the accomplishment. I’d just started working with a new voiceover coach, Mary Lynn Wissner and she had really challenged me to tap into the softer side of my voice. A tough task for a talent who’s often hired for that upbeat, cheerful delivery. This is why coaching is so important. Just like a personal trainer gets your body in shape a VO coach gets your voice in shape. They challenge you to try new things, give great constructive criticism as well as insight into current trends. Her direction and encouragement worked. I booked it and went on to record with a top ad agency here in Houston, a team that was conferenced in from Chicago and a fantastic producer behind the board at Audio Bob Studios. It was a great experience and the spot is a personal favorite.
