A Platform for Chasing Dreams

By Trisha Beausaert

March 4, 2014

Homer thanks to David and Stephanie Ciccarelli, as well as to the staff at, for providing this 70 year old "newbie" with a wonderful platform to reach for his dream job!

Once I became a member of I never felt like a number; I felt more like a family member. There is kindness everywhere, from the tutorials to returned phone calls. What wonderful people!

I recently joined this great company and have received many opportunities to audition for interesting projects, never doubting success would soon come.

On February 17th, my birthday, I realized that I had my first notification from I thought, "Could it be a job?" I reasoned that it surely could have been, not with all of the competition out there. It must have taken me 5 minutes for me to open the message; I wanted to savour the excitement! I felt like I was 20 years old again. Upon opening the message, I learned that I had been selected for an 18 page read, and that the direction was that the client wanted me to "soften up just a little."

Two days later, I sent the completed project to my client. I received the acceptance notice the very next day. My immediate concern was their thoughts, wondering how I did in following their direction. Long story, short, I received 5 stars and the script was accepted in its original take! Not bad for this old timer.

My bride of 42 years is very proud of me, as well. She loves the new me as I pursue my voice over dreams.

Once again, from the heart, thank you to and their fantastic team.
