I would like to be a voicepro. I have been doing part time voice over work since I was 15. I work in the broadcasting industry as a Television News Reporter while going to school full time. I enjoy voice over work so much. I have felt it has been my calling to use my voice somehow since I was very young. I love helping the members of Radio Daddy out by providing free voiceovers for non-commercial use, and I would love to grow my business by becoming a Voicepro and being allowed to offer my services professionally to people outside of the forum.

I am 20 years old, and am currently obtaining a BS in Telecommunication and Film, Broadcast News from the University of Alabama as a Junior. I have been a part of WVUA-TV's news team for two years, and have also worked as Music Director for WVUA-FM. I currently work at Best Buy to help pay the bills, but would love to grow my voice over business because I just absolutely love doing voice work.

Rates are negotiated per project since I am not affiliated with any union and I do the work part time.

Thank you so much for any consideration y'all will give me! :)

Having listened to the demo's available on the website. I have to vote no this time round. There is a difference between being a voice artist and presenter. Whilst I think the weather read on the site is by far the best demo there, the others don't showcase a range or any dynamics of your voice. Also the production is lacking the umpf needed to grab any attention.

Good luck

Am I the only one who had time to leave an appraisal? Wow I wish I was as busy as everyone else!! I'm sure Taylor would like to hear more than my opinion! There was 6 votes!

Actually, i couldn't think of anything else to add at the time, i agreed with spikes appraisal, but I will say this, do not give up just because it was a no this time. Refine the demos, remember you want them to WOW the listener, read and work your voice every single day, the more you practice and listen to yourself, the more you will come up with. Read the phone book and make IT exciting. Read a kids book and try a character....its about practicing every day. Your instrument, your voice, needs practice every single day...as with production as well, so keep at it!

As much as I love to welcome new talent in the VP arena, my opinion on this applicant has to be no. I wanted to hear that sense of joy and energy, the creative force and nuance, and the little something something that tickles the ear, and I could not find it. I think more time should be spent on learning the dynamics of delivery and developing a varied approach vocally... stretch your vocal register... create characters that can deliver varied formats... I think the potential is there... just needs more work....
