Hello Everyone,
Just registered and looking forward to getting started with LibriVox.

A little about myself. My entire working life has been based on verbal communication. Brought up in West Yorkshire, my parents and teachers strived to instil in me a reasonable knowledge of grammar whilst remaining true to my Yorkshire roots.
Joining the army as a sixteen year old, I was quickly exposed to a wide range of accents and vocal styles and learned how to interact with their owners.
Upon leaving the army, I undertook a long career in sales, honing my communication skills. Latterly I have specialised in telephone-based work where it is imperative to use good oration to win in an extremely competitive environment – my distinctive vocal style has played a large part in my success.
My fondness for travel and meeting new people has further enhanced my love of the spoken language. And I now enjoying transferring my skills and experience to VO work.

Looking forward to hearing you around the place, Tony ... welcome to LibriVox. Please do just ask if you have any questions, and have fun here!
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!
