It is always nice to be invited to a party.

It means people enjoy your company, you usually have interesting or funny things to say and people generally like having you around.

Voice Talent Natasha Marchewka published in Backstage MagazineSo I was honored yet surprised when I got an email from my friend, fellow Faffer and female voiceover talent Natasha Marchewka a few weeks ago. She was writing an article for Backstage Magazine about the best ways for voiceover talents to secure new business and she wanted to interview me.

Naturally, I requested a private plane to NYC, a suite at a 5-star hotel in mid-town Manhattan for 7 days, 24-hour chauffeur, clothing and food allowance (no more than $5,000 per day, as I am not greedy). I also said the 10 tickets I would need for Hamilton on Broadway could be within the theatre’s  first 10 rows. Only divas demand front row. I am hardly a diva.

Plus sometimes the actor’s spit when they talk and if you’re in the front row…ewww!

So Natasha emailed me the questions and said IF (and only if) my answers were any good, she might include them in the article.

Oh well, you miss 100% of the shots you never take. 🙂

Somehow I made the cut. Natasha was very kind to include me at all and the editors of Backstage were also kind not to hit the delete key after seeing my name in the article….sometimes my life can feel like one long edit with a dull blade (old time radio people will get that reference).

Here is the link to the Backstage article HERE.

pleased to welcome big mouth talent to my voiceover representation team

Some nice news to share with you.

I am pleased to announce that I have added Big Mouth Talent in Chicago to my team of stellar voiceover representatives. Kelly Wilkening and her team will handle voiceover opportunities for me across Chicagoland, Illinois..and elsewhere as they have contacts around the country.

It’s kinda of a fun story about how this particular arrangement came together.

NBC Chicago Jan 30, 2019

This is what -23 degrees F (with crazy wind chills) looked like from outside my hotel on January 30, 2019.

You might remember a few weeks ago when I was in Chicago during their record cold spell of -23°F with wind chills that made it WTF Cold (#chiberia as it became known).

Well just before the BIG freeze (oh it was still plenty cold), I needed to do a recording for a client. I looked up studios in the area around my hotel and one voiceover studio, Chicago Recording Company, was three blocks from my hotel. I booked the session and over I went.

Yes I walked to the session, I’m from Buffalo, NY for goodness sake! My lips unfroze….eventually! 🙂

The people at CRC were great – amazing set up there, the session went very well and they were very complimentary and gracious. They noted that they often work with Big Mouth Talent in Chicago and, based on what they heard, maybe I introduce myself to them.

So I did, we communicated for a bit, saw it would be a good fit for both of us and I am now part of the Big Mouth Talent VO roster.

But next time I head to Chicago, I’d like to try and do it during baseball season.
