If you work in one of these cities, share your stories of life in the fast lane!


As a voice talent living in either New York City or Los Angeles, you're in two of the most creative cities in the United States, and also residing in two of the most competitive cities in the world with regard to landing voice-over work or on-camera roles.

Let's take a look at the landscape...

New York City is home to 8.1 million people, the most populous city in the United States. Trying to make it as a creative professional is extremely difficult in any city, let alone the Big Apple. Everything is fast paced from networking to sealing the deal.

Los Angeles, although on the west coast and presumably more relaxed, is no stroll on the beach when it comes to finding work. Talents are up at the same time their east coast counterparts are, often starting the work day at the crack of dawn to get a move on the competition.

What unites you as talents in New York City and Los Angeles?

In order to succeed, you need to have the right connections, the talent, ambition, and a vigilant ear very, very close to the ground. That's just an observers point of view who serves voice talent at InteractiveVoices.

Here's an opportunity for you to share your stories.

What's it really like out there for you on a daily basis, how do you make ends meet, and how does working in either New York City or Los Angeles compare to other cities where you've worked?
