Today on I Hear Voices, Will Friedle and Christy Carlson Romano sit down with A.J. Beckles AKA Takemichi Hanagaki AKA Musashi AKA Chocolove McDonell (Joco).

In this episode, A.J. details his winding journey of discovering VO, pursuing it as a career to now voicing main characters in multiple anime series.

Although new to the industry, A.J. has been passionately putting in the work for years to find representation, book jobs, and uplift fellow voice actors. A.J. shows how the hybrid model that the industry adopted during the pandemic opened up more opportunities to take workshops and receive auditions inquiries. A.J.’s faith in his talent allowed him to experiment with connecting with the right people who could support him as he continues to build his career.

We LOVED hearing A.J.’s journey and believe this is an excellent episode to engage in if you are interested in becoming a professional voice-over artist.
