Today, I officially signed the paperwork with Stewart Talent to be represented for union commercial VO (and audiobooks!).

I know some of you have already heard the news via Facebook, but it means so much to me to share this news with everyone here. This milestone is a direct result of the relationships made and lessons learned here.

I sent Jason at Stewart my first demo almost exactly five years ago. He responded that his roster was full in my category, but that I should stay in touch - which I did once or twice a year for the last five years. So persistence does pay off!
