Thanks for adding me to the Group. Started in 2014 while still working in Hotel Management, full time in 2016 when I got tired of dealing with Jackhole (can I say that here?) ownership groups who buy hotels for their wives as a hobby!?!? Nothing against that if you can but learn something about the industry first.
Did a lot, a LOT of P2P auditions, fortunately one led to a TV Doc Crime series (13 ep) which led to 2 more TV Doc series with teams that spun off the original production company. I've narrated 23 one hour documentaries, over 65 audiobooks, a whole bunch of explainer and eLearning videos and a nice assortment of commercials.
This has been a blast, new challenges, variety of work projects and a supportive VO community.
As for level, I would put myself at strong Intermediate, always learning and enjoying the ride!
Thanks for having me!
Lee

Welcome, Lee!
As Bruce said... that's a nice pile of narration work under your belt!

Welcome Lee! I've done some docs myself - not as many as you. Good to have you here!

Hi and Welcome Lee. I grew up in Ottawa, IL. Got my start on radio there. Been on the West Coast since 1980. This is a good place to hang out. I am mostly retired but teaching law classes part time at a community collge. I am just dabbling in VO these days. I turn down cheap jobs.

I am trying to get the motivation to update my website. My demos won't play anymore. Demos need updating too.

Welcome, Lee, and thanks for sharing who you are. You will learn who we are. Don't be overly scared. Just remember the cake. The seat next to me is for D3 otherwise I'd ask you to sit here. (OMG, I just thread jacked with an inside, inside joke I don't even remember the beginning of...I'll be in time out...)

you'll likely get an award for that.
