Dave and Jason's Bios
RETURN & REFUND POLICY
Dave Wallace is an LA-based, SAG-AFTRA actor who has had the pleasure of voicing projects for Fox, Disney, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, Old Spice, AT&T, Dodge, and somebody who once hired him to sing 'rock-a-bye-baby' in a death metal voice (...don't ask).
A passionate believer in SAG-AFTRA, Dave has rejected the notion that the union is a thing of the past, and firmly believes that it is possible to have a thriving career as a union voice actor--even if you're outside the LA and New York markets! Dave has grown his business by converting many non-union projects to union projects, and wishes to share that knowledge with his fellow voice actors by going into an in-depth discussion on how to convert jobs.

Jason Linere White
Always in constant movement, be it in social media, workout groups, ADR, teaching martial arts, or speaking at VO conferences - it’s no wonder that Jason has been referred to as the “Jackie Chan” of acting. Starting out as an on-camera childhood actor in Los Angeles, he quickly understood how to breakdown scripts, and find the “heart” of the story. Jason believes the reason is… The "inner-city."
Growing up in multiple rough neighborhoods, and experiencing hardships at a levity different than most, he taught himself to utilize these raw emotions to bring characters he would audition for, to life. With a smile on his face, and a cartoon version of himself everywhere, he’s known throughout the VO community to be genuine and reliable. His rare ability to translate “director language” into “actor language” is a skill that he has helped others to cultivate.
Jason's talent can be heard in countless video games, national college spots, and currently as the voice of "Scrubby" of Johnson and Johnson's - "Scrubbing Bubbles", as well as the national voice of Lids Sports apparel brand.
