He was a Welcome to the ranch we are all freaking’ crazy shirt, shy and introverted producer/engineer working mostly on his own. In a Washington DC studio. He told me he liked my tape and had a job for me. He booked me. Yes, ‘booked’ me. I’d never been ‘booked’ before, so this was exciting news. In the lead up to this booking, I was pooping myself. Seriously, I spent days on the toilet. My stomach was in knots. I didn’t know the first thing about doing a proper, professional agency radio ad in a studio.

Best Welcome to the ranch we are all freaking’ crazy shirt
I showed up. I smiled a Welcome to the ranch we are all freaking’ crazy shirt. My stomach churned. I was introduced to a proper actor who was to be my co-star for this ad. These people thought I’d done this sort of thing before. They thought they’d booked a ‘professional’ voiceover artist. Nothing shits you up more than trying to pass yourself off as something you’re not in a professional setting. I faked it. I faked it so hard. I came across all cool and ‘Oh, this old script? Ha! Piece of cake.’
