How far….

sean daeley….would you travel to go to a voiceover conference?

Well…Sean Daeley traveled 6827.6 miles.  That’s how far it is from Nagasaki, Japan to Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Like me, Sean is a “hybrid” voice actor who does something else to help pay the bills (for now).  Only… he does it all the way across the Pacific. Sean teaches English in Japan…but meeting him, you quickly find out his passion is behind the mic.

At VO Atlanta, Sean took the time to do interviews with a few people, and I was lucky enough to be one of them. You can watch that interview below.  It’s probably more about me than you’ll ever want to know, but Sean asked good questions, and I did my level-best to give honest answers.

My hat is off to this guy who obviously has a lot of energy and drive to get ahead in our business.  And my guess is, he’ll advance more quickly toward that goal as the winner of the VOA grand prize: a brand new Sennheiser MKH-416 microphone. 

Congrats, Sean!…and thanks for making me look good!

    Hi Dave! Thanks for this beautiful post and video!

    VO Atlanta 2016 had talent coming from the most amazing countries. Particularly at our Spanish Program, we were very lucky to be joined by colleagues who came also from the most unexpected countries, like Jorge, a Mexican VO Artist who actually lives in Warsaw. He found out about our conference while visiting some relatives in NYC, and immediately after he took a plane and landed in Atlanta.

    We also had people from Uruguay, Argentina, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela… Just a trip from Uruguay to Atlanta demands about 15 hours!

    I was so happy to see you, but so sorry we didn’t have time enough to catch up and talk. These conferences are so intense, that the time given to interact with other colleagues is so tiny, and in my case I was practically in a parallel planet during the entire event…

    Thanks so much for being such a great inspiration.

    I admire you a lot!
