“The year is 3037 and Shadow Wood is dead.

Of course, you knew that already.

There is no Foreverman, no immortal shadow wood agent ready to swoop in and save the day at the last second. In real life, you have to step up and do things yourself.”

The folks over at the Shadow Wood Audio Drama production team approached me a few months ago to narrate this AWESOME episode of the Shadow Wood Archives. It’s a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic audio drama series that you’ll only find ONLY ON YouTube! Based on BBC’s Torchwood, this Production out of Guildford is the real deal.

I hope you enjoy this 34 minute story packed with action, diverse characters and a very cool heroine all narrated by yours truly. It’s probably one of my best works yet!!

Thank you @shadow_woodtv for inviting me to be an evangelist of your series and a member of your esteemed cast. 🙏🏼🛸

What a joy to support Rob Oliver of @yourkeynoter in his endeavor to CRUSH the @guinnessworldrecords goal of longest interviewing marathon on the topic of perspectives on healthcare. It's a very timely conversation, given the state of our rights in healthcare and experiences with current healthcare.

The questions every guest from all around the world are answering is...

1. Briefly tell me about yourself and your experiences in healthcare.
2. Have you met a "Healthcare Hero," someone who was doing it right?
3. What does quality healthcare mean to you?
4. What do you wish your medical providers understood about you?
5. What is one thing medical professionals can start doing today to improve the quality of healthcare?

What do you think people do all day when they say they “work from home”?

Here’s a rare peek at a day in the life of a full-time, working voice actor, in case you are wondering what my “busy” looks like. ☺️

WEEKDAYS

6:00 - 7:00am - Check emails, texts and anything else on phone before waking up.

7:00-7:50am - Wake up, make breakfast for little, get bags ready and take kiddo to school (thank goodness we only live 5 mins away!)

8:00—8:30am COFFEE and breakfast. Let it gurgle down. lol Maybe a shower in here if I really, really, really need it.

8:30am-9am - prep for the day (letting coffee gurgle)… set up camera, iPad, computer, ice packs (bc ARIZONA) and notebooks or client notes, etc. Check/respond to emails.

9am-11am - Zoom meetings and/or Record #allthethings (auditions, audiobooks, my podcast, any client work like VOG, YouTube vid VO, etc. etc.) and/or VO coaching - Before the Air Force sends every plane in the hangar over my house - I try to record. Morning = the 1st quiet time.

11am - noon - Crapshoot. Flexibility is key. Whatever needs done. If it’s an audiobook editing day - I can do laundry simultaneously and run the dishwasher. 30 minute lunch.

Noon - 2pm - Do everything that doesn’t require QUIET (Audiobook editing, bills, errands, marketing, invoicing, planning, etc.). If it’s a quiet day, I may record another chunk here.

Between Noon and 3pm on any given different day - pick up the kiddo from school.

3pm-5pm - Lessons for kiddo (swimming, gymnastics) and homework OR more working on stuff that doesn’t require quiet.

6pm - 7pm - Family time. We play Roblox, Minecraft, VR, Barbies, Whatevs.

7pm - 8pm - Pack lunch, pack bags, make lists for next day, bath time for kiddo, “first” bedtime. Maybe a shower for me if needed. Clean kitchen for the third time that day #allthedishes

8pm - 9pm - If kiddo won’t go to bed, more reading, more time with her, more coaxing, more listening to podcasts for sleep.

9pm ———> 6am - I’m passed out. I may wake up to check social media or write a list, but I go back to sleep HARD.

WEEKENDS

Chores. Fun outings. More chores.

What happens when a Founding Father and a coquettish Redheaded Time Traveler go toe-to-toe in Science and Philosophy? Tune in to find out!

President Jefferson is paving the way for innovations in education, science, religion and philosophy for the very young United States. He pulls up his long red hair into a hair tie and runs to meet the visitors.

Can time travelers Edward Patrick and beautiful redheaded Ellis Alexander convince the President’s childhood friend, Bishop James Madison, of the unconvincable?

The budding Washington D.C. builders may need a little nudging from the future to get it RIGHT.

Enjoy the newest story by Howard Loring, author of The Crazy Old Sandman!

It’s May! Mother’s Day is just around the bend. We hope you enjoy the very personal love story and tribute to parenthood - with a twist.

Have you ever wished you could capture the present in your hands and keep it forever? Jeff seems to have found a way to do it! Or… has he? And, is his wife Barbara happy about it? 🙏🏼❤️

BITTERSWEET. Isn’t that what life truly is? A wisp of smoke wrapped up in daily eternities.

You never think it’s going to end. With our ever-increasing technological breakthroughs, maybe it doesn’t have to…

Today we finished a tiny little project for a mighty little hamster buried in our backyard. A tombstone and little statue of remembrance painted by our little family. I think it came out really well! These rocks were in our backyard and we painted them. Reduce reuse recycle ♻️

I am DEEPLY, truly grateful to @jamiemuffett , @caringilfry and all of the amazing Voice Actors and VO Community for being awarded one of 27 scholarships available for this year’s VOcation Voiceover Conference. A VERY special thanks to my sponsor, @robscig for supporting my attendance to this AWESOME educational and career advancing industry event. Thank you for continuing to offer it virtually, so that I have a shot at attending it! Business ownership, voiceover equipment, coaching, software, motherhood and childcare are challenging AND expensive! So having the support of this awesome community is beyond humbling. 💰❤️🙏🏼🎧🎤

If you find yourself with a little downtime today and doing some mundane chores like CLEANING THE CRAFT CLOSET (like I’m currently doing), why not tune in to an entertaining banter between a New Yorkican and a Pittsburican talking shop!

I had the opportunity to have a lovely conversation about Voiceacting, feeling like a Hispanic imposter, how our voice really IS who we are, the career change journey that led me there and how everything we do contributes to who and what we want to become. And let your mouth water when we talk about our favorite Puerto Rican food! Wepa!

“Season 2 | Episode 5
If you’ve ever heard an ad, audio book, or narration that features the warmest, most inviting midwestern voice ever, you’ve probably been listening to this week’s guest! Melissa Del Toro is a voice actor from Peoria, Arizona, who runs her own production company, Melissa Del Toro International. In addition to being a killer vocal talent, Melissa is also a proud Puerto Rican who connected with her roots a bit later in life. Join us this week as Tania, Miguel, and Melissa explore how different the Latinx experience can look, how we can use our voices to share our stories, and how you can enjoy Melissa’s voice each week through her podcast, Untold Tales.”

Listen to Season 2, Episode 5 here! I promise we even kept some of the bloopers in.. Thank you Tania Lopez 🥘 and Miguel Xavier Diaz-Lopez at @morethanriceandbeans podcast!

💜🎧 I’VE BEEN VOICE ACTING MOST OF MY LIFE… without knowing it. Maybe you have too?

If you saw the movie “In A World” written and directed by and starring @lakebell , she gives a GREAT example of this concept when she interacts with a woman that uses a very high, pitchy voice to communicate. It’s funny in the movie, and a very real thing…

I worked as as Project Manager in a male-dominated construction industry and I’ve delivered Inspirational Speeches to teachers and elementary school kids in the New York City Public School system.

And in both environments, my success pivoted around one very important skill - the masterful use of my voice. Speaking to people so that they would listen. Often, I did this by using the lower or higher frequencies of my voice - depending on who I was speaking to.

In Voiceover, it’s all about connection. Finding that frequency the listener resonates with in a fraction of a second.

I have practiced and practiced and learned over the years how to use the broad range of frequencies in my voice to connect with the people to whom I am speaking. Now with Tania, a Bronx-based Puerto Rican New Yorker with a flare of her own, we talk about the sound of our voices and how we use them practically to be heard and get things done in this wonderful @morethanriceandbeans podcast episode!

Today I want to Insta-thank Melissa Del Toro International and cyber-shout it for everyone to hear!⁠ ⁠ I’ve never been the type to send thank you cards, but Melissa deserves it. She has been the most supportive mentor and accountability partner I could ever have dreamed of (and we still haven't met IRL😅).⁠ ⁠ I quite honestly couldn’t have built one creative business and pivoted to another without her to share ideas and everything we’ve learned along the way.⁠ ⁠ Thank you Melissa! 😘⁠ Your support means the world to me!⁠ #accountabilitypartners
Melissa, if I had to give the best possible advice to a loved family member. It would be this in their inspirations and choice of career. Never lose sight of your goals and always remain flexible to inaugurate change when necessary. Always be respectful and caring to the people around you that helps you to arrive at your destination. Good Luck to you at your new business.
Keep up the great work! ❤
