Our mission: In an age of social disconnect,

our goal is to provide personal connections via our authentic and inspired voices.

James Mandell

James Mandell, Agent | CEO

James began his career in a New York jingle house, then moved to LA, where he was an Elektra/Asylum recording artist before moving to VO and post services. A seasoned artist, he’s intimately aware of the challenge and opportunities from both sides of the mic. Since starting up VoiceOver LA in 2002 he’s worked with hundreds of companies, searching for just the right take to help each production succeed.

Callie Ray | Audio Engineer

Callie Ray, Marketing Director | Audio Engineer

With a background in post-production, most recently working for 4 years at Warner Bros. Studios, Callie joined us in 2014 bringing her expertise in studio engineering. But like all good ‘millenials’ she’s multi-talented and also handles our marketing and web development. Strictly vegan, Callie is a committed lover of avocados and red wine. She has a bunny called Kitty (its ironic) and her rabbit obsession is beyond socially acceptable. Just check out her Instagram.

 

Quan Jamison| Finance and Accounts

Quan Jamison | Finance and Accounts

Running a tight but friendly ship, Quan has had a hand in managing several entertainment-oriented vessels. Her reliable expertise masks a quick sense of humor known best by those who tend to wither in the unforgiving light of seemingly undecipherable Quickbooks algorhythms.

Martha Mayakis

Martha Mayakis, Agent | Casting Director

As one of the best-known casting directors in the country, Martha was at the Voicecaster for 14 years before moving to VoiceOver LA in 2007, where she now heads up her own casting division, Talkshop. A veteran coach and teacher, she’s nurtured the careers of hundreds of actors, all with wit and style.

 

Gary Giambo, Casting Director | Audio Engineer

Gary worked in TV and movie casting for years before moving into the VO biz in ‘99.  He joined the staff at VOLA in 2008 and has been booth director-in-chief ever since. His low-key approach in concert with an innate prowess for coaxing out killer performances comes on the heels of literally thousands of creative auditions and talent wrangling.

 

Jemima Worlock | Business Development

Jemima Ham | Business Development

As a stereotypical Brit, Jemima has no sense of humor and constantly corrects everyone on their spelling and grammar. Her Irish drinking ethic is somewhat redeeming. With an extensive background in marketing and development- most recently with an international beauty brand, hence her newborn-baby skin- she is a delightfully snarky, invaluable addition to our core team.

 

The notorious video that took 27 videographers to create. Literally.
