We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelly Moscinski and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kelly, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
This is something I’ve always struggled with… trying to find the perfect balance. And over time, I’ve learned that that doesn’t really exist and it only made things more stressful for me to constantly be seeking that balance. Now, I believe that “balance” is something that works itself out in the end. It took me quite some time to realize that it’s not something that is possible in every individual day. Certain days family needs to take precedence and some days work will take precedence. I used to strive for a perfect balance each day and each day I was disappointed that I couldn’t achieve it. It wasn’t until I realized that my work-life balance would work out in the long run that I was able to truly start feeling more balanced.
What should our readers know about your business?
I own and run a voiceover casting and recording studio in Burbank, CA called The Voicecaster – a legendary VO studio that has been around for 45 years!!! I absolutely love my job! And I think a large part of that is that each day brings something new. I’m very fortunate to get to work on both the creative and business sides of the VO industry. I’ve been with The Voicecaster for over 11 years now and have owned the company for over 7. After sending out over 400 resumes and cover letter across LA seeking a job in casting, I was excited to take the job offer from The Voicecaster. I worked hard to learn everything I needed to and to better my craft in all areas – casting, directing, engineering, demo productions, etc. That work paid off and just over 3 years in, I was asked by my boss and the former owner to take over the company. My dream come true! Running any business has it’s challenges and each day I face those challenges, especially in the time of Covid-19 where our entire industry has changed; but our business is running as strong as ever and I’m proud of the way we’ve adapted to still brings our clients the very best in all VO services!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Some of my favorite things to show our guests: Hollywood – The Hollywood Sign is always a must! Probably from Hollywood/Highland area so we can see the handprints/footprints, along with the walk of fame stars. We’d have to eat lunch at Mel’s Diner. Probably check out the Wax museum and maybe catch a movie at El Capitan. Venice/Santa Monica – The Venice boardwalk and Santa Monica Pier, along with the PCH, would be a must-see for anyone who hasn’t had that experience. Eat along the way at various stands. Check out the sidewalk shows, the beach, and even the rides on the pier. Griffith Park – For friends with kids, Griffith Park is a great place. Whether it’s the Merry-Go-Round, the LA Zoo, or Travel Town, there is so much to do! Plus, movies at the old zoo and hiking around the park. Museums – I’d want them to check our LACMA and the La Brea Tar Pits. The Tar Pits are something you won’t find anywhere else and so fascinating to see. Santa Barbara – If they are wine drinkers, going up to wine country is a fun day trip, or even spend a night. Solvang – This would be at least a one or two night stay, but such a fun and unique place to see that’s just outside of LA.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My husband, Travis, and my son, Beckett are the two people who keep me going – my loves, my strength, my sunshine, my world. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them!
