. Listening to our astute panel for the December WoVO Rates Roundtable talk about the realities of being part of the Spanish-speaking and bilingual marketplace, I was struck by the sameness of their challenge for all voice-actors. Target audience Client relations Interpretation Dialect Fair compensation's all there. World-Voices Organization especially feels an acute need to be aware of these issues for people who speak something other ...

One thing is clear about today's VO rates:  there's little clarity. The pace of change in the business is swift, and compensation rates are either not keeping pace, or being re-invented out of thin air.  Legacy scale and historically good-paying jobs still exist, but only for a few, and mostly in LA and NYC.  The internet,  digital distribution channels, and online casting sites are re-defining the norm, and lack of unity in the trenches makes fo...

If you love bacon, and wonder why the world's Jews and Muslims can't eat pork...then you'll love this NPR article:
As long as pigs have existed, humans have weighed desire for their meat against disgust for how the animals lived and what they ate. Today we have fresh cause for worry about how pigs are living.

Interesting article Dave, I have to take heavy medication that is made from harvesting pig pancreas!

For a while, I was on fire to put together a new book from the archives of my blog.  One about Social Media. The first book from the annals of my 8 years of blogging is a success:  More Than Just A Voice: The REAL Secret to Voiceover Success. The pages of that book contain a relatively enduring message of voiceover information; suggestions that have a shelf-life that'll last as long as the current era of voice-acting permits.  Yes, things are con...

World-Voices Organization's popular "Rates Roundtable" series kicked off it's second year of monthly episodes yesterday...and it was a zinger! Our topic surrounded the paradox of newcomers entering the business, seeking experience AND reasonable rates, and not often being able to find both. The conversation ranged far 'n' wide into the issues of job vs. career P2P's marketing saying "no" to clients upselling your services job searches referrals...

Thanks for asking!

A conversation about the union often rises to the level of rancor usually reserved for Mac v. PC discussions. For today's WoVOChat, we're not going to go there...but it makes you wonder.  Why shouldn't SAG-AFTRA bring about universal support?  A union should in all aspects be FOR the actor, speak FOR the talent, benefit the career OF the member.  I'm sure the union CLAIMS to do why is there such disagreement about the value of the union...

I believe SAG-AFTRA is not what it once was. I live in a right to work state and this is something to consider.

It's OK, you don't have to answer.  In fact there may not BE a right or wrong could be sort of a personal thing. Talent agencies pretty much were the T-1 line to VO jobs back in the day.  Now  -- depending on who you ask --- agents are STILL the path to the best-paying jobs for top clients in NYC and longer a necessary part of your successful VO career at all. Then there's the chicken-or-the-egg argument.   It goes like t...

Voice-Actor, Las Vegas TV News Anchor, Social Media Bon Vivant, Rennaissance man. Information, communications, and-on-camera specialist.
*Anchor of Evening News at KLAS-TV (CBS) Las Vegas, NV

[I'm also a freelance Voice-Actor where I'm known by the name "CourVO".  (see]

People keep asking me when I sleep. Apparently I don't need much.

I love my job as a TV News Anchorman, and I keep busy in my off-hours voicing all sorts of projects in my private, ISDN-equipped home audio studio: audiobooks, E-Learning, websites, and Corporate Presentations. 

I'm strongly identified and passionate about children's issues.  I'm on the board of BoysTown, NV; Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA); Big Brothers Big Sisters of NV, and the Adoption Exchange.  For 30 years I've been profiling children seeking adoptive homes.  This has brought me national media awards, but more importantly, it's helped children find permanent homes.

I'm a father of three gorjus daughters. One is a college grad, one is attending TCU as a scholarship soccer player, and the 3rd is a Sophomore at Chapman Univ in Orange, CA. My wife of 30 years is a Nurse, Stephen Minister, and stay-at-home mom. 

I'm a prolific blogger:  Voice-Acting in Vegas, and as you can see from the list of links below, I'm also an itinerant Social Media gadfly.  I enjoy cutting edge trends, and dabble in most new things on the web.

I own one of a disappearing line of collectible cars: the Chevy SSR retro convertible roadster pickup. At 9 years old, it has only 51,000 miles.
