JoJo Fun Facts!
Oh the irony! A woman who reads everyday for her career started out with a big, fat reading disability. Bs and Ds, and 3s and Es looked a lot alike to me back then, and still do some days. My amazing parents got me reading tutors all the way through grade school, so I didn’t fall behind. I still stumble over these letters occasionally, but you’ll never hear any mistakes in your projects – that’s what the edit button is for.
My Destiny Started With Toothpaste
Growing up, I read the back of toothpaste tubes into the mirror selling the benefits of dentifrice. I still have zero idea what dentifrice actually is, but that’s where I got my start. While I haven’t recorded any commercials for toothpaste (yet!), I’m totally prepared should they need me to say the magic word.
I Have An Addiction To Airborne
Who has time to be sick? I don’t, because if I don’t work, I don’t get paid. And not getting paid makes me a Grouchopotomous. While a sore throat might enhance the gravel in my voice and make me sound like a porn star, this really isn’t the way I want my career to go. So everyday, I take Airborne. And Vitamins. And drink a gallon of water. Excessive? Never. Health is my moneymaker.
I Have Bat Ears
You know how mom’s have eyes in the back of their heads? I have ears like that. I hear everything. Everything! Every unidentifiable sound in my studio – I hear it. Don’t even get me started on leaf blowers. And if any funky noise is on my recording, I remove it or I re-record it. I simply won’t send back less than stellar quality audio, because I figure, if I can hear it, you can too. So, all projects I send back to you are Bat Ear approved.
I’m An Author
The same week I decided to become a voice talent, I started writing a book. How’s that for crazy?! My book Dirt Farmer Wisdom, about family wisdom passed down through the generations was published five years almost to the date of when I started writing. By the time it was published, I had been a working voice talent for three years. I’m still writing, but voice over is my one true love.
