Subject: Fremont Native Goes On To Become A Famous Voiceover Artist
My name is Jonathan Tilley and I live in Germany. I hope things are going well at ________. I'm originally from Fremont and I remember picking up _______ as a kid. What you do for the local community is fantastic.
The role of ____________ is never boring. Writers waiting until the last millisecond to submit their articles, coffee-infused late nights to finish everything, and the electricity bill skyrocketing due to literally burning the midnight oil does not a happy ___________ make.
I'd like to be the reason why you get home at a reasonable hour. As mentioned in the subject line, I'm originally from Fremont, have performed on stage from the age of 9 - 30 in productions of Mamma Mia!, Cats, 42nd Street, and A Chorus Line - mostly throughout Germany where I currently live. For the past 10 years I've switched over to voiceover lending my voice to clients like Facebook, Google, Red Bull, IBM, and Unicef. In between takes at the mic, I thought it might be fun to give back to the community where I grew up. And the Fremont Native Goes On To Become A Famous Voiceover Artist story came to mind.
Feel free to check out my media kit to learn more about what I do as a voiceover artist at www.jonathantilley.com/media
If you have any questions or would like to brainstorm similar story ideas just say the word. Since I am 6 hours ahead of you, what time in the morning (your time) would work for a quick 10 minute phone call? My contact info is below in the e-signature for your referral.
Thanks for your time and give Fremont a big smile for me. Haven't been back in years.
