Why I Love VO.

Marice Tobias (my voice coach) introduced me to Seth Godin, and his blog has become one of my favorite reads in the morning (along with Andrew Sullivan). His post “Workaholics” describes perfectly the way most talents I know think about VO. It’s our passion, something we absolutely love to do. It’s not easy. It’s the most challenging job I’ve ever had and I’ve had a few. But oh my. . . the satisfaction that comes from lifting words from a page and bringing them to life, hearing the beauty of the language and using it to communicate the client’s message . . . that’s what really floats my boat.
