On The Floor at CES

On The Floor at CES

This blog as little to do with voice-overs, and everything to do with being a fool for technology.   It's true that many of us in voice acting are not afraid to show our geek colors.  After all, we depend on electronic devices to do our work. CES, though, takes the appreciation of hi-tek to a near...

Send Me on a Mission

Send Me on a Mission

My world is awash in CES this week. The TV station where I work is only 3 blocks from the Las Vegas convention center, so I'm literally swimming in attendees -- 150,000 of them -- as they come and go.  Traffic is a nightmare. On top of that, our news is rife with local and national reports...

Regardless, there are lots of smiles, and...

(sniff) I'll be living vicariously through the attendees tweets and FaceBook posts. In fact, my bestie Derek Chappell and I will be riding herd on all the social media posts we can...

WoVO/FaffCamp Coupon

In just a little over a month, FaffCon's latest offshot:  FaffCamp will take place in Charlotte, NC.  (see details here).  More like a typical conference (rather than FaffCon's "un-conference format), FaffCamp will nonetheless have a very faffy feel, and you'll see a lot of your friends there....

Get Campy

In the interest of absolute fairness, It behooves me to underscore the opportunities available at the OTHER major Voice Over Conference taking place during the first weekend of May  (I've already blogged about Voice World Toronto, organized by the fine folks at Voices.com). What's cool is that the...

Bits ‘n’ Pieces

Bits ‘n’ Pieces

We operate in an amazing world of information and connectivity, and voice actors are perhaps more in tune with that than other professions, 'cause we make our living online. The VO world seemed to be humming yesterday.  Many of you who frequent social media like I do, may have seen some of the...
