VOICE. TALENT.
"...ability with pronunciations is remarkable!..."

If forty four years of life have taught me anything, it's that remaining calm is one of the most helpful things we can do for ourselves and others. Aside from the fact that it helps me daily in my business, there ain't no one that can't be helped with a cooler vibe, if you know what I mean. Maintaining calm is beneficial to our overall health. A calm mind and body allows our body to function optimally and heal continuously. In my Ten Top Tips for Talking, "staying calm" is right up there with staying hydrated and avoiding illness.

Hello Dear Reader! I am taking January off from blogging - both hibernating in Halifax and rejuvenating in Grand Cayman! Thank you for your readership in 2014. I am truly grateful. Back to it in Feb 2015! The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog. Here's an excerpt: A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 3,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people. Click here to see the complete report.[...]

There is no question in my mind that SLEEP is one of the most important factors in my success as a voice talent, a business owner, and as a parent. While a good night's rest may be obvious for success in parenting, and in general, as a person who works with my voice, it's absolutely key. If exhausted, there is nothing that replaces sleep in order to speak with an even, consistent tone. If you are working with your voice as a trainer, presenter, teacher, speaker, sleep needs to be a priority. While only #4 on my list of 10 Top[...]

My job requires me to be very, very precise. Certainly not brain surgery, but recording voiceovers does require crossing the proverbial "t's" and dotting the "i's", listening back to all recordings and making 100% certain that each word, no matter how small, be precisely read as written. I pride myself on the specificity and precision I bring to my work. This same precision is important in most jobs, I imagine – from doctor to waitress, being sloppy is not an option and lacks excellence. Equally important in getting it right the first time is in the role of passport administrator. And yet,[...]

I once threw a birthday party for my mom and invited all her friends to my house. She took the liberty of giving her guests “the tour” and since we happened to rent the rectory of a church at the time, a Heritage property (and the house where both my children came home from the hospital), it had the potential to be interesting. When my mom made the stop in my office / studio – she kept her friends in there for at least 10 minutes, offering a soliloquy of what I do for a living, or so I thought… Weeks later, my mom[...]
