Playing games.

My friend Dave Gilbert of of Wadjet Eye Games is an up and coming independent game developer. He asked me to voice the part of Dr. Quentin in his latest game The Blackwell Legacy. Before that, I voiced the part of Rabbi Zelig in his earlier game The Shivah. You should check out his site and try out the games. Big fun is guaranteed!

Studio 60 Picked up!

Good news! Studio 60 has been picked up for at least a full season. Someone at the studio must have recognized that the show deserves a shot. NBC took a big chance on The Office and it paid off for them big time. I hope Studio 60 wins the audience it deserves.

Save Studio 60

Dear Friends,

This is a bit off topic but . . .

Studio 60 is in danger of getting canceled by NBC. Sign this petition and tell NBC to keep Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip!

It's a genuinely good show. The writing is smart and compelling. It deserves a shot.

Being a plant

I am in the Brook Arts Center's current production of The Little Shop of Horrors. I play the voice of the Audrey II (The Plant). While it is live theater, in reality it is a voiceover gig. I am acting, I am alone in a room and I am reading the role into a microphone. OK, I'm not alone. The lighting guy is in there with me. OK, his wife is there too. But I am still the only Actor in the room! Anyway, it's been fun. The show ends November 12th. If any of you are in the Bound Brook, NJ area, please stop in and enjoy the show. Stay afterwards and say hi and let me know you read about the show in my blog. For more information about the show, go to

See ya!

How to get started in Voiceovers

Well, I am still exploring this question myself. I found a very interesting perspective on this question here at Dave Houston's Blog. Eventually, when I am rich and famous, I will compose an amazingly pithy and interesting answer to this question myself. In the meantime, I will share the resources I find with you so we can learn together!

A Fantastic Resource for VO People.

I can't remember where I found this board but it is fantastic. The site is The archives are chock full of information that will defininitely be helpful for anyone interested in the art of voiceover. I've spent a good week pouring through the archives before I even registered for the site! The people on this board know their stuff and are funny and friendly and love to share their extensive knowledge. I hope you find it as useful and interesting as I have.

What's in a name?

When I initially thought about making money on the internet, I thought I'd start an eBay business. Right away, I figured I'd buy a domain and set up a website to promote the business. I wanted to name the site something that would be cool yet could be an actual business name. I settled on SereniteBiz in honor of my granddaughter Serenity, and what I intended the site to be, an eBusiness.

The eBay thing cooled off.

When I embarked on my voiceover career. Rather than think up a cool new name for my Voice Acting website, I just recycled Well, the site has been up for a while and it has been duly crawled by various bots and such. I am actually in the #1 position in Google if someone searches for Bilingual Voiceover Actor!

As is the usual course of things, my SereniteBiz domain name came up for renewal. I started thinking that perhaps I should buy a domain that actually sounds like it has something to do with Voiceovers and Acting, thus the birth of I just bought the domain today and I want to spruce up the old site before I actually launch it. I am hoping that it will be far more successful than and hopefully, this blog will help too.

My Story

Let me tell you a bit about myself. I was born and raised in New York City. I am a native Nuyorican or as I like to call myself, a "Latin from Manhattan". I have always been what some might call a “ham”. It all started during my 4th grade Christmas pageant, when I uttered the immortal line “gee grandpa!”

I’ve been hooked ever since.

I have been acting, singing and hamming it up since the 1980s! Over the years , I've done stand-up comedy, several Improv comedy showcases, a Cabaret showcase and both on-camera and voice-over work. If you're wondering why you've never heard of me, that's because I had to take a bit of a hiatus from showbiz. Yeah, I know, 20 years is a long rest, but hey, I was really, really tired.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for taking the time to look at my site.
