Hello to everyone!  My name is Dave and I've been voicing for many years. 

I'll start with where I'm from.  I live in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.  It's probably easiest to say that I'm about an hour or so west of Toronto, ON., Canada. I have had several jobs so far in my young life.  I have worked for a few radio stations in Southern Ontario both as a host and co-host.  But, voicing has always been a part if not 100% of what I do.  

In the context of what will I learn from others here on Upwork?  I have no idea.  But, I will take any direction, criticism, or counselling and help that anyone has to offer.

As far as who inspires me?  Oh man, some so many people & characters have already influenced what I do.  Those people who do inspire me aren't the individuals who people usually look up to in the sense of inspiration.  Robin Williams is one of the people/characters that I look to for inspiration.  Even though he is no longer with us - I still "draw" from his creative energy and wit.  As for the "what" inspires me?  Just knowing that at any given time I can receive a text or email to voice something for someone's project.  That definitely gets my juices flowing! lol. 

So, I'll leave it like this.  If you're looking for a deep, baritone, soothing voice with excellent diction, enunciation and pronunciation?  You've found your guy.  However, there is so much more to me than what you read here.  Check out my demo reels to hear straight reads, voice accents, character voices etc...  I am a complete package.  Ready to work for YOU! 

Thank you for taking the time to read this and getting to know a little bit about me. 

Cheers, - D. Currie

I'd like to understand how to get first clients from others to be successful in my career.

Lofi's music inspires me while I work, but I also find inspiration in the things I do. I spend a lot of time outside, and my current hobby is writing a book. I was inspired by my habit of writing dairy.

Hello:

My name is Lynn and I live in Los Angeles.  I'm a 4th generation professional musician and play trombone with a 70's horn band called The Gringos.  I'm also a long time real estate broker working in the field of Real Estate Investment.  I've been designing for both my band and my real estate business for the past 4 decades and my skills all revolve around sales, marketing and promotion.  My real estate investment business is struggeling and not doing very well currently, but the band is about to release it's third studio Album, (There is a gap of 45 years in between #2 and #3 but that's a story for another time.)  I would love to help other people in the sales world with their promotions and sales stratagies. Looking forward to finding some success in this new venture, and with a bit of help from this community, I think we all can be successful.  I've included the band's most recent single release from the upcoming album, titled RIDE.  I produced the lyric video as well as played trombone on the track. The cover art is by Jen Score, sister-in-law to the band's drummer.

Hi everyone! My name is Kayla and I'm an attorney based out of the great (lol) state of Alabama. My skill sets focus on legal work (obviously), but I also really enjoy proofreading and copywriting. I'd love to learn from more experiened members, just how they found success in getting jobs and building a steady stream of work invites. I would say the people that inspire are people just like the ones on Upwork who are tackling this new frontier of remote/flex work in order to either find a full-time job, make a little side money or just hone their skills in a new field.

Hi all,

I did just send an introduction a short while back, but will just say a few words again. My experience extends beyond 20 years dealing directly with clients, presenting products, managing queries and questions as well as objections. Also managing and resolving complaints, client service and retention.

Although new to this line, I feel I have plenty to offer our community as well as our clients. Looking forward to becoming a valuable member and gaining experience as well as adding to my resume.

Best regards, Mark
