I started my voice acting career when I was around six years old, so by the time I was ten, I’d been to pretty much every big casting studio for all sorts of different roles. They say, “Time flies when you’re having fun,” and to me, voice over is nothing BUT fun! I never really notice the passage of time until I think of all the places I used to audition at that have closed down since. That’s why it’s always both refreshing and nostalgic at the same time whenever I get to go to places like Kalmenson & Kalmenson that I used to go to over nineteen years ago. It’s hard to believe that I was getting direction from Harvey Kalmenson as a ten year old, little boy and am still getting direction from him as a twenty-nine year old, little boy! Whenever I audition there, I can still hear my ten year old voice in my head say, “Gee, I really hope Mr. Kalmenson thinks I’m good enough!”

Not to worry “Big Ben, you were good enough when they first “schlepped” you in to audition for me and you have improved with time.
It never ends, does it? Studying and practicing ones craft is a never ending process.
I do believe remaining a little boy is an important part of this game we play.
Thank you for the kind words.
