Voice talent and audio producer Dave DeAndrea always did voice-overs as a kid.

When he grew up, he veered into radio and learned the foundational production skills that would help him transition into voice acting.

Hear Dave's story in today's VOX Daily.

I Like Voice-Overs!

Having been bitten by the voice acting bug, Dave DeAndrea knew that voice-overs was the way he wanted to go to both use his gifts and support his family. Dave shares his story in the video below.

A Launching Pad For Clients

Coming from radio may give people a head start on the technical aspects of voice-over but when it comes to finding their own work, building a relationship with a marketplace or agent is more than beneficial to help get the word out about your skills and receive opportunities to audition.

Dave DeAndrea relates, "Voices.com has proven to be an integral part of my career as a Voice Actor over the years. It's served as a launching pad for several of my clients who have used my voice gain and again. I'm more than happy to be able to tell people about the services that Voices.com provides."

        Hi George,

        Thank you for your question!

        I've asked someone from Voices.com to reach out to you to help answer your question about finding a voice-over coach. For now, you might want to listen to a number of podcasts on Voice Over Experts to get a taste of the teaching you might want to explore:
