This evening I had the delight of visiting with a number of folks involved in voiceover in LA at the invitation of my voice coach Marice Tobias. We had such good conversation about all kinds of topics, at least some of which was business related.
The highlight of the evening though was surprising my oldest son Eric with a birthday surprise. Marice, when she discovered that Eric is turning 19 this week, suggested that I let the restaurant staff know that we have a birthday boy at the table and they brough out a fabulous surprise.
Eric is blowing out his candles while surrounded by our new friends as well as a few that we’ve known for a long time. And this is what his plate looked like after removing the candles.
You can see voice actor John Taylor reaching for one of Eric’s lemon cookies as I snapped photographic evidence of his attempted larceny. Eric says they were delicious.
It was a truly wonderful end to our voiceover journey this weekend. Oh, and Happy (almost) 19th birthday, Eric!
