"I Hired A.J and had a great experience working with him as a voice talent. We were both clear and upfront with expectations about coming work and pay rates. He blew me away with his audition and once scripts were sent out, his read-through was thorough and delivered exactly to specification. A.J also delivered ahead of deadline, allowing me to ask for modifications without being short on time. This doesn't happen enough in audio post and I am thankful to have worked with voice talent as professional as A.J. My character was brought to life with his performance. To this day many listeners ask me personally about the actor behind the awesome voice and performance. I'll continue to say "That was A.J Beckles. He was Stellar to work with."

"AJ is a supreme actor to work with all around! He's extremely reliable, easy to work with, offers an amazing performance, and is beyond professional. I casted him for an audiobook series and have enjoyed, and continue to enjoy, working with him!"
-T.S Weisland Sem:Adventures across time
"AJ is an incredibly talented voice actor, with a wide range and a superb work ethic. I have worked with him for over nine months, and plan to work with him again for my final season. He absolutely nails playing Amad Khan in KALILA, showcasing both emotional vulnerability and excellent comedic timing with difficult material. He has always been willing to play with his character and experiment, as well as meeting the challenge of voicing side characters. AJ shows up to table readings ready and enthusiastic and is very communicative as a remote VA. I have already recommended him to other shows seeking talent like his. AJ would be a benefit to any show that takes him on."

For every single person answering this question whether they want to voice act, are a hobbyist or is already a seasoned vet, the answer you’ll receive will more than likely be very different. I am no exception. To me voice over is a safety net. When I was younger, cartoons, videogames and the such all…
