Hey folks. My name is Chris Orbach, voice-over artist and singer-songwriter from NYC, USA. I am totally in awe of of the Dielselpunk and Steampunk communities, and I just thought I'd join up and say hello!
Thanks, Tome! I mostly do commercial work -- my biggest jobs have been for L'Oreal, Ethan Allen, Delphi, and Kodak. I haven't had much of an opportunity to do the more fun aspect of v/o work, such as cartoons (most of those are done out in L.A., and I'm in New York). But years ago before I joined the unions, I did a bunch of anime stuff under the pseudonym "Hideo Seaver".
That's what I hear! Texas for one chunk of the animated biz, L.A. for the rest, NYC for the commercials. Just don't know if I could leave NY. I've lived here all my life (you know, back when it was still wonderfully seedy!) I do have a Telos codec in my home studio, which allows me to work with anyone anywhere. But there's no substitute for being there, as far as the personal networking aspect.
