    When You Get Scared, Don’t Shrink, GO BIG!

    When I was studying voiceover, I took a number of improv classes. They were a lot of fun even with my horrible stage fright. All was fine, until one day we got a sign-up for a 2-day musical improv class. Hmm, how bad could it be? It was just one weekend. To this day, it’s …

    How To Shine On Camera!

    It’s Time For Your Close-Up!

    As you know, the holidays are full of parties and family/friend get-togethers. But sometimes just the thought of starting a conversation with new people can make me want to head straight for the bar and the nearest wall (preferably by an exit).
