WHO:

What’s your name? Grant Kenny
Job title: Account Executive

THE SIDE HUSTLE: VOICE ACTOR

How’d you get started in voice acting? What’s the journey been like?

I’m still at the beginning stages! I started with coaching and online training through a Studio in New York. My coach was the voice of a popular Saturday cartoon called Yu-Gi-OH.

Since then, I’ve trained with multiple coaches and made a lot of connections. I now have a website and an agent based in Atlanta.

I’ve worked on a few commercials for car and RV dealerships, a YouTube Web trailer series, and some professional narrations.

I also help run a conference every other year – the Mid-Atlantic Voiceover Conference, or MAVO for short. It’s based in Herndon, Virginia and brings voice actors from all over to meet and work with the pros. It’s a huge success, and I love being a part of it.

THE ADVENTURE:

Where did you go?

I flew to Salt Lake City, rented a car, and explored 4/5 National Parks in Utah. I visited Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, and Bryce Canyon over a ten-day span and hiked close to 100 miles in that time. I lived off of peanut butter sandwiches to save money, but every once in a while, I’d splurge on some deli meat and have the meal of a lifetime.
