Hi there. I’m John. Thanks for visiting my site. I make my living as a voiceover talent, but that wasn’t always the case. So, who am I? Where am I from? How did I get here? We may never know, but clues from my murky past help paint the picture.
I’m from right here in Los Angeles. I was a big reader as a young kid, and connected early on with the fiction of Kurt Vonnegut, P.G. Wodehouse, and in particular Ray Bradbury. His fantastical evocations of mood and ambience struck a chord with me that still resonates. Throw in spooky and scifi story lines and I became a fan for life. I’m also a big fan of British comedy, Bob’s Burgers, gasoline-free gardening, volcanology and Japanese monster movies.
Eventually my voice and wisecracking ways led me to voiceover classes (improv too), and I knew that my professional place was behind the mic. I started small, voicing ads for local cable and radio stations, and worked my way up from there.
The present day…
Things have changed a lot since I started. We used to work in recording studios exclusively, but I do most of my voice acting in my home studio these days – which, though not as social as the old days, does spare me a lot of time in traffic.
