Ep #12: Knowing What You’re Meant to Do in Your Career with Tom Aglio

Hello VO Podcast with Tom Aglio

In the very early days of my voiceover career, I landed the role of the villain in a YouTube web series called Project Infinity. Tom Aglio is a Voice Actor in New York who landed the role of the lead, and we’ve known each other now for over three years working together on Project Infinity. 

Before I really knew anything about voiceover or running a voiceover business, I relied on Tom for information. Tom was not only willing to help me out but I give him and Andy Field credit for really helping me jumpstart my voiceover career. 

Tom has had a lot of voiceover success so I’m excited to have him on the show today to talk about how he got started and what he loves about voiceover.

Note from Tom: Check out my commercials for AT&T in various podcasts/internet streaming radio channels, I have two national Valentine’s Day commercials airing this week, so check those out too!
