Hi and welcome to my news page. In the coming days, weeks, and months, I will be adding content related to the voice over industry. I will also add any news that pertains to my vo friends and of course what is going on with me in the world of voice over.
Words of Wisdom
One of the few gifts I have received since I've been a Voice Actor is that I can have all the talent in the world and that is not what keeps me working, it's my work ethic. It's being willing to put in the work each and every day. Will Smith says that "...talent you have naturally, skill is only developed by hours, an hours, an hours of beating on your craft."
Check out what else Will Smith has to say on this subject by clicking on the link below.

Someone asked me not to long ago how I work on getting better at voice over. Well, there are a few things that I do and I'm sure others will tell you what they do is similar, or not!
I do a lot of things and I will get to those things soon, but there is one thing I would like to share with you, and that is, I have to practice, oh did I day practice? YES...PRACTICE and one of the ways I PRACTICE is with a VO Workout group. I know that even the top VO artists workout. It's important to workout with others, if you can, because you get a different perspective on your reads and you get a chance to direct others, which is valuable because we spend so much time in the booth directing ourselves. If you are interested in working out with myself and my VO friends. Check out my good friend and fellow VO workout buddy, Larry Hudson's Website VOheavenWorkOuts!
He is the one who started this skype workout group and it has really been a great help to me and others.
Talk soon! Gene
