Now in the Pacific Time Zone, I’m up a little later than my friends and colleagues in the Eastern Time Zone where most of my voice work comes from… This means, if I wake at 6am, it’s already 9 and scripts are hopping, work is moving…but, my voice is not. Vocal warm-ups are now more important than ever for me, since I often have to hit the ground running vocally in the mornings. Once everyone has cleared out of the house, my first order of business is to vocally warm up as best as I can, as quickly as I[...]

A stranger asked me for my expertise the other day…that is, a follower on Twitter whom I'd never personally met. I was delighted to hear he'd been reading my blog regularly and asked me to critique a sample of his narration as he is interested in working in voice-overs and considering posting samples on Voices.com.
