I’m new to this whole blogging world, but willing to give it a shot and try anything.
A little about me, my name is Matt Wilson and I’m an aspiring Voice Over Actor. I began my pursuit in voice over after a ten year career in law enforcement. I felt it was time that I pursue a career that I feel passionate about, and haven’t looked back since! Voice over is amazing for me in that it allows me to interact with a wide range of people, and is therapeutic.
As some may know, before my voice over career, I served in the U.S. Air Force as enlisted Security Forces. Like so many unfortunate soldiers, I was diagnosed with PTSD after my tour in Iraq. Having been diagnosed with PTSD has been a challenge, but luckily with my friends and family, I have been coping. Times are tough though, and after a four year hiatus from the military, I re-enlisted into the California Air National Guard as a Space System Operator. Luckily, this alternative career move is not as high stress as my former deployment ready career, and I work with some amazingly smart and interesting people.
Thank you to everyone for your support with challenges I’ve faced, and thank you for your support in my move towards voice over. Like any job, it takes time and resources to be successful. I look forward to the future and the classes to help hone my craft, and developing a healthy relationship with the clients I meet and help make their projects a success!
