For more than a decade, George Whittam - one of the world's leading experts in voice-over audio technology - has been helping voice actors and VO recording studios sound their best.  
Last year, he founded to assist people who record voice-over with tech support, training, studio design and audio processing templates.
A 1997 graduate of Virginia Tech with a Bachelor's degree in Music and Audio Technology - and a minor in Communications - he worked with many musicians and recording artists, and gained broadcast engineering experience before focusing solely on clients in the voice-over industry.  
Based in the L.A. area, his many voice-over studio clients include the late Don LaFontaine, Bill Ratner, Melissa Disney, Randy Thomas, Joe Cipriano, Scott Rummell, and many more.  
He is also co-founder and designer of the SAG Foundation's Don LaFontaine Voice-Over Lab in Los Angeles.
And on Monday night's, we find George in studio as co-host of the popular 'Voice Over Body Shop' webcast covering all aspects of voice-over - especially home audio studio technology.
"George is one of the best guys I've ever found in Hollywood - up on all the jim cracks and hi-tech gizmos that make my studio run like a Ferrari. He's served me and my voice-over studio so well, I feel I should give him 10% of everything I earn (forget it, George, just kidding)."  
- Bill Ratner
"George streamlined my studio to where I've had zero problems ... and it's so simple now that even a chimpanzee could use it, and that works for me. George really saved my life."
- Vanessa Marshall
"Sometimes you really need a team, and George is definitely an important part of mine." - Mary McKitrick
"I've had several compliments from mixers stating how incredible my set-up sounds compared to the other sessions they have throughout the day and night. I tell them it's all because of George Whittam."  
- Jim Tasker
"Thank you, thank you, thank you for your unwavering support, your incredible expertise, and your steadfast guidance in helping me improve my audio quality and home studio."  
- Anne Ganguzza
