512tech/Austin American-Statesman used a photo of our panel “Using Professional Voice Actors in Your Indie Games” for the recent article “The state of Austin’s gaming sector: Stable, diverse in size, due for some shakeups.“ Photo details: “At right, Frank Coppersmith leads a panel discussion on voice-over actors’ involvement in video games with Alexander Brandon, Bonnie Bogovich, TJ O’Leary and Kelley Huston at Capital Factory in Austin..

With all the voice acting, singing, and opera shenanigans I have been up to lately, I finally took some time to update my Voice Acting and Vocal Performance page as well as created some reels and collections for my SoundCloud Playlists. Still needs a bit of work, and lots of fine-tuning, but at least now it’s not a year out of date:) Do you need any human, cat, chicken, or critter vocals for your upcoming project? Send me an email, I am happy to chat about collaborating! #gameaudio #vo
I had the pleasure of singing on another beautiful choral arrangement by May Claire for the Materia Collective album “SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X”. She asked us all to video record ourselves singing our parts, and here is the result! Enjoy, “Hymn of the Fayth”! – Get the track on Bandcamp – Get the album “SPIRA: Music from Final Fantasy X: Besaid Mix – Watch the Youtube Music Video
While in San Fran for GDC last year, Brennan Anderson asked “Hey, can you pop by my studio during the week to record some… cat sounds?” and obviously, I said YES. Turns out it was for a cat music track for “Cat Sorter VR”. You can finally hear the finished track on Soundcloud:) “This is an original choral piece from the game Cat Sorter VR. This song begins playing when you are short on time, and there are too many cats on your conveyor belt! Featuring Bonnie Bogovich, Grey Robbins, and Kurt Heiden as the cats!” #gameaudio #vo #vr
