My Disney Channel Appearance!

Hey guys! I have a bunch of announcements coming up about stuff that I’ve recorded over the last year or so. It’s the way the voiceover world works; you record something, and then forget about it for a year (sometimes two) before it comes out. There’s so much work involved in post-production that sometimes it takes a while. 

Today, I’m happy to announce my first-ever Disney Channel appearance. In Lego Friends of Heartlake City, Episode 17 (or 19, depending on the region) entitled “Dive In,” you can find me as Tad, the dreamy/cheeseball lifeguard who also has somewhat of an obsession with clean teeth.

BREAKING: Trump Pardons Hurricane Harvey

WASHINGTON - Just days after pardoning serial racial-profiler and former sherrif Joe Arpaio, Donald Trump has followed up by fully pardoning hurricane Harvey, sources say.


As was expected, presidential policy was executed via tweet.

The pardon comes after the hurricane reportedly devastated thousands of acres of land and forced some 30,000 people from their homes, at least three or four whom may have possibly been illegal immigrants from Mexico.

“I was very sad to see aggression on both sides of the natural disaster,” Trump said in a statement. “I think both sides were at fault.”

Trump followed up two days after the devastation by finally condemning the destruction caused by the hurricane.

“We condemn, with the strongest possible words, this egregious display of rain, wind, and flooding…on many sides.”

Many believe that this quick - yet still somehow ambiguous - change in attitude had to do with President Trump being threatened on twitter by leaders of the National Hurricane Destruction League

“Take a good look in the mirror and remember who put you in power,” Darla Dutchess, leader of the NHDL, said in a tweet. “And it wasn’t…not hurricanes.”

The pardon drew heat from several organizations, including the ACLU. Cecilia Wang, the deputy legal director, said the president “has chosen swirly cloud patterns over justice” and that the pardon amounted to “a presidential endorsement of wanton, natural destruction and people driving boats through city streets.”

Hurricane Harvey had already been sentenced to being reviled throughout history as one of the most devastating hurricanes to make landfall in the United States. Now, because of the presidential pardon, official records will only indicate that “Houston and the surrounding areas became slightly moist.”

This post is satire, and not real news. If you had to read this to figure this out, I am sorry. I write for the military satire newspaper Duffel Blog, and occasionally have ideas that don’t fall into our lane, as they don’t deal enough with the military or politics. Since keeping them inside is physically painful, I occasionally publish them here, instead. If you liked it, you should check out my book, Mechanical Failure, which is also satire.

Hiring a Voiceover Artist: Union and Non Union

This article is part of the Hiring a Voiceover Artist series. You can find the rest of the articles here. 

SAG-AFTRA. A combination of two unions that now represents every aspect of voiceover work in the United States. But what is it, what does it mean, and what path should you take in your project?

This can be an awkward and confusing topic for several reasons, and let me start by explaining why I think this is the case. This is only my opinion, of course, and even among voice actors this is a divisive, contentious issue.
