That question is about as open ended as a question gets, of course. In this case, the “why” I’m addressing has to do with how I got to this place, 30 plus years later, doing voiceovers for a living.
Why? Because, honestly, I have to.
This work doing voiceovers for audiobooks and documentaries and eLearning and radio imaging and television commercials and lots of other stuff that spins in a myriad of directions is exactly what I was born to do. Since I was a little boy I have enjoyed telling stories. Sometimes they are my own. Most of the time, they come from someone else. But the beauty and the power of the story are just as real, no matter who creates it. The joy, at least for me, is in the telling of the story.
I have tried lots of other pursuits, lots of other occupations. Nothing else, for me, has the soul satisfying “rightness” that doing voiceovers does.
May you find the same kind of satisfaction and delight in your work.
