There were so many spectacular performances, we had to expand the numbers and even add an extra show!  Still, it was a difficult task for our panel of judges to narrow down the field. We listened to 1,821 auditions, we laughed, we cried, we battled it out behind the scenes for weeks to come up with our finalists. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR TOP 48!

Uduak Inyang, half man, half wizard, half droid; 100% wonderfully weird. Clowning around since age 9!

My voice career began in the radio department of Columbia College Chicago. After being a disc jockey and producer at a number of radio stations across the country, I transitioned to voice work full-time to put that same confident, engaging sound to work for companies such as Netflix, HBO, HULU, Comcast/Xfinity, Laureatte E-learnings, Merck, the City of Philadelphia, ASUS Computers, and Good Neighbor Pharmacy. And I’m proud to say that I am one of the in-stadium announcers for the Philadelphia Eagles NFL team…
…and YES, I have a SuperBowl ring!

Abbey Lee has loved the stage, the mic, the spotlight since the beginning of time. A Northern California native, she’s performed in dozens of musicals and plays in the Bay Area, even winning two San Francisco Bay Area Theater Critics Circle Awards for lead actress in two very different roles. Her natural versatility allows her to explore and excel in different voice over genres. She has been studying at VoiceTrax in Sausalito for the last four years, is yet unrepresented but can sense that is close, and having a wild time along this artist’s journey.

Well what can I say about me haha? My name is Jacob Mira and I am a voice actor and metal vocalist. I’ve been doing this for about a year now and loved every second of it. I’ve gotten the opportunity to work with and learn from a lot of wonderful people over at Closing Credits and several discord servers in that time. In my spare time I read books, play video games and D&D, and give metal vocals to songs that shouldn’t have them. I’m pretty active on discord and have a YouTube channel where I get scared playing horror games.

I hope to pursue voice acting as my full time career as I truly feel the happiest when I’m voicing.

From Batman in an online graphic comic to an old character in Bratislava conducting a two hour city tour, I’ve had the opportunity to play a broad spectrum of characters and standard voice overs.

Oh hey sup!  I’m George Nowik, and before we can be effective friends you need to know the “W” in my last name sounds like  “V” because I’m an Eastern European mutt. Now that we’re mates, I can tell you that I love voice acting, mixing albums, recording musical instruments for session and personal enrichment, writing, and being a video editing dork. Once upon a time I mixed live sound at MAGFest for like 9 years (ever lived on top ramen for 4 days straight?), I’ve played Chapman Stick and Bass in a band with Vince DiCola, composer of Transformers: The Movie and Rocky IV (he is the nicest guy alive), and I’ve sung in barbershop quartets to counterbalance my hair style.  Star Wars, Bacon, Laptop + Cubase + Midi Controller, Olives, and the Rush discography are my picks for being stranded on a desert island and I love effervescent views of the sunset.  Thanks for stopping by!

What can I say? I’m just a simple boy who watched way too many cartoons as a kid screaming along with my favorite anime characters powering up (I’m lookin at you SSJ3 Goku)… Nothing has given me more enjoyment than those cartoons and characters and I can’t even begin to say how much I love being some of those characters… it’s a motherluvin’ dream come true

Heyo! Let’s start with a few key features. I am: Tall, erratic, and stupid with a splash of genius. Oh, and my voice go deep. Not that that defines my voiceover life. In fact, Im generally pretty bubbly, sometimes even “girly”, which sounds HILARIOUS with a deep voice by the way. Motivating yourself to start voiceover just when it feels like its becoming the #1 most desired job in America is tough, you really gotta find a way to stand out in a crowd. Luckily for my lanky self, that’s never been a problem ;)

Hi there, I’m Laura–just your typical passionate, curious, often foot-in-mouth awkward…friendly neighborhood voice actor! I’m smack dab in between San Diego and LA in the beautiful town of Temecula, CA.  I blame that for my recently developed affinity for planting succulents.  When I’m not in the booth–and usually the hubby has to drag me out–I enjoy listening to audiobooks (I swear it’s for developing my dialect skills), cooking breakfast items, and attempting crazy DIY home projects that should probably be left to professionals.

Magnus Ocean Wolf: Voice Actor, Musician, Podcaster, Wanderer. I live to create and cultivate and have one foot in other worlds. UVOS is a beacon of light and I’m happy to be part of it.
Sam is like a well-travelled cloud: she’s multilingual, multi-accented and her multi-cultured personality means she can be bright and fluffy, ominous and stormy, soft and sensual, or anywhere in between.

Her versatility in voice will bring your character and story to life, exuding your message from within the clouds.

Animation & Gaming

Live Show February 15th | 7-10 pm EST

Growing up under the direct supervision of cartoons, Brian Doe Chua found his calling after realizing that the characters he watched didn’t actually live inside his parent’s TV. After being bit by the acting bug, he has been walking that path ever since.

Brian is perhaps best-known for lending his voice to the characters of Timber Spruce in the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls universe, Osamu Mikumo on World Trigger, Gabe Brunai and Katana Sakaki on Beyblade Burst, Alain, Ricardt, and Wu Kong in the Nintendo mobile game Dragalia Lost, and most recently Ying Zheng in the anime series Kingdom.

Brian has also been developing a portfolio of live action work that includes the FOX TV series Wayward Pines, and the CW Network’s Supergirl to go along with various independent film projects that can be seen at film festivals around the world.

Beginning his career as “Brian Doe”, he decided to make an addition to his last name to honor the Chinese side of his heritage. In adopting his mother’s maiden name as part of his professional identity, he is embracing another side of himself.

When he’s not acting, Brian can be found indulging in his addiction to guacamole and can be heard bursting into song at random moments on the streets of his current city of Vancouver, Canada.

You can find Brian on Twitter and Instagram @BrianDoeChua

As a CA based voice actor, Manny Cristobal has been able to voice in a variety of genres since his start in 2019. Eager to hone his craft and grow his skill, he sought to train with industry professionals in different aspects of VO, from commercial to promo to animation and gaming. And with his arsenal of voices in his toolkit, he always seeks out opportunities to provide the necessary BOOM that people need for their projects.

Tom Edwards went to the University of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, where he obtained a BFA in Drama.  He began his explorations in acting somewhere in Junior high and High school, where the need to exhibit his hilarious takes on life began.  Upon graduation he began to obtain work in theatre and commercials and films and industrial videos, all of varying quality, in Edmonton and in Vancouver, B.C.  He’s worked in ADR for Anime cartoons and a bit of voicing for games with Bioware.  He has been to many voice conventions with Deb and taken many voice acting classes with Deb and Elley-Ray.  He met Deb Munro at a film audition in Calgary way back in the 2000s, where she invited him to get into voiceover and “Look her up”.  And Tom can partially blame her and Elley-Ray for the performance you will be put through now.  He takes most of the blame upon himself.

Who would have thought that making talking to yourself “interesting” would lead me here? If there’s one thing that I’d want to do for the rest of my life, it would be this. Talking into the void within my tiny purple Scream Closet. I need to support my crippling dice addiction somehow, ya know? It is my honor and privilege to be able to subject/I mean, share the voices in my head with the world.

Tim Heller is a voice actor based in Austin, TX. After starting out in the theatre and musical theatre world, Tim found his way to voice acting almost by accident. Chronic back issues took the live performance aspect of his life out of play for a while and thrust him into the wonderful world of VO. Talk about a silver lining! He is so excited to be on this ride and strives to create opportunities not only for himself, but for friends and colleagues both new and old!

Eli is a Canadian born, NJ bred recent transplant to Toronto, most recently, via Chicago.  She is a trained actor with a BA in Theatre Arts from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, and an MA in Acting from East 15 in London, England.  She is bilingual in Hebrew and English and proficient in French.  Being a first generation North American and the daughter of immigrants has created an intense curiosity inside of her and a desire to truly understand how other humans live around the world.  This makes for engaging and dynamic storytelling.  Eli and her husband, Justin, are the proud parents of an extraordinary son named Zev and a mouthy kitty called Mrs. Weasley.  You can see and hear her at www.elikatzvo.com.

It all started when I began recording my “stuffed animals” interviewing each other on their daily show when I was about 6 or 7, haha. Yes, I do still have some of the recordings on my little cassette tapes, and it’s hilarious. When I came of the working age, fate sent me to Disneyland as it was the only “LAND”  I could let out my inner child. I will forever be grateful for that. For 7 years I got to play pretend in the entertainment department of the world’s greatest playground. I performed as several world famous characters and got paid to “play”. It was a dream come true for this kid!

Surrounded by Talent, I was constantly inspired. I eventually left Disney to pursue what I went to college for, teaching. Feeling misplaced and incomplete, I eventually left teaching in search of what, I didn’t realize until later, I had once had, but left. After many failed career paths later, my path lead me right back to entertainment, to feeling whole again. I found myself in VO after a wild zigzag of trial and errors in life. The moment I realized that VO fulfilled what nothing else did inside me, and it was something I was able to do while raising my kids, Boom, I committed and made a career out of it for myself.

This is the BEST industry. I have found my place, my tribe, and I am committed to personal improvement on a daily, a passion I lacked everywhere else. I am here to learn, grow and continue doing what feeds my soul. I am inspired daily by my peers, coaches and legends in the industry. I feel blessed daily to do this for a living and can’t wait to see where I go from here. Until then, I am enjoying this incredible ride. Thank you for being a part of it! :) With lots of Love, Iman

Wisconsin native, California transplant, animation enthusiast, wannabe gamer, new mom, traveler, Disney fan and Tolkien nerd. Favorite hobby is reading to my son in all my character voices :)

When she’s not gaming, trying out new recipes or imitating actors in Korean dramas, you can find her hyper-fixating on mushrooms!

Jesse’s a Voice Actor based out of Los Angeles. His passion is creating and performing characters, anime/ animated t.v. shows, Dungeons and Dragons, and loves to run. (even if no one is chasing him…) He’s very grateful for his showcased audition, and would love to share how much fun he had performing it.

Will is a professional dragon tamer with a Ph.D. in wyrm biology who does voice acting in his free time. He was also – contrary to popular belief – the first man to walk on Mars, and is the founder of the SPCT (Global Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Toasters). To date, the organization has rescued more than seventy-two toasters and toaster ovens and given them better homes. Will is honored to be showcased grunting into a microphone, and prays that the aliens that left him here will see and come get him because it’s been two centuries now and he’s getting tired of human “food”.

Born in Hungary and currently residing in Dallas Texas, Livia Zita is an award winning multilingual voiceover talent and vocalist.
