Joseph Etienne Bio: Experience and Skills

When doing impersonations as a kid, Joseph Etienne never dreamed that he could (or would) end up doing voice over work for a living. In fact, he took a bit of a detour, getting a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and working as a systems software engineer before realizing that voice over was his true passion, and he needed to act on it.

In 2014, Joseph enrolled in an Internet Radio Announcing course at the Columbia School of Broadcasting (now Dream2Destiny). He took courses on Tags, Promos, Anchor Roles (news, weather, and sports) as well as classes related to on-camera work.

Through these courses he discovered voice over work, went in that direction, and never looked back.
