“Hope you all are well. Finally out of the weeds and able to write an update! The last 2 years have been remarkable professionally, but I still fondly remember my first voiceover workshop with K&K in May 2017. I was new to Los Angeles and new to the VO world and had not a clue how to compete in the big leagues. That all changed, of course.

Kalmenson Grad, Maya Aoki Tuttle says:
“I've taken the Foundation 1 + 2 with Steve Staley, Animation 1 + 2 with Dino Andrade (multiple times! I love these classes!), and Improv with Stephen Tobolowsky (life changing class!). I loved taking workshops with Cathy Kalmenson, Kathy Grable, Ted Sroka. Not only did my Kalmenson classes give me a great bedrock of voiceover skills, they were incredibly fun!
Last year, I signed with LA agency VOX. I can't announce much yet, but I've booked 5 guest and recurring roles on various major network animated series through Vox. I also booked my first major role with performance capture on a large video game franchise, which I'm in the process of recording (see pic! so futuristic!).
Kalmenson was fundamental to my growth as a voice actor. Anyone that asks me for advice, I always steer them toward Kalmenson classes. Thank you, Kalmenson!”
