All journeys begin with a single step

Ah, what a weekend. I spent most of it flattening my site- the one you’re visiting right now- and rebuilding it with the goal of documenting my journey into the world of professional voice work.

My name is Corey Snow and I’m a software developer by trade, a geek by choice, and have wanted to be a voice actor since I was about 20 years old. Like many others, I’ve heard the “you have such a wonderful voice” or the “you should be on the radio” comment from friends and acquaintances many, many times over the years.

I finally decided to put up or shut up, to really make a push into the world of commercial voice work. The purpose of this blog is to document my steps- even the ones that falter- into this new vocation.

I’m not going to be quitting my day job or anything, but I will be working diligently to accomplish my goal of becoming a serious voice actor and artist. To that end, I’ve spent a lot of time setting up demos and working on my skills as a sound editor. I’ve also created a “60 characters in 60 seconds” demo, which I hope you’ll give a listen to.

What can you expect from this blog? Well, I’m not totally certain yet. I have some ideas in mind, such as writing about what I’ve found really works for me for recording, editing, and so forth. I have a home studio recording booth I’m building in another week or two and I plan to document that process. Also I’ll be talking about the ins and outs of the voice acting “world”, for lack of a better term.

It’s an interesting one so far, and I hope you find my insights, such as they are, useful and entertaining.

    I just listened to your Librivox recording of “Meeting of the Board.” Nice job!

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Fr Matthew! I”m glad you enjoyed it. Look for more LibriVox recordings from me in the relatively near future, and with vastly improved audio quality! 🙂
