About Dean T Moody

Dean T Moody, Voice Artist.

Who am I? Why, the Most Annoyingly Versatile Man in the World. Thanks for asking!

-Hollywood-born, raised all over the USA
-US Air Force Intelligence translator for the NSA
-Hollywood projectionist
-4th grade teacher
-ADR and Looping artist for films and TV
-Read the entire Harry Potter book series out loud to friends and family (no, not all at once)

From the tender age of seven, Dean and his little brother would indulge themselves in old radio theater albums, where the “theater of the mind” held sway, and the power of voice acting made a deep impression. The Lone Ranger, The Shadow, Fibber McGee and Molly, and many other old radio shows competed for Dean’s attention with the classic TV cartoon voices of Paul Frees, Stan Freberg, Paul Winchell, Daws Butler, Gary Owensand of course, Mel Blanc. In the following years, Dean took pleasure in reading MAD Magazine movie satires out loud into his 3″ reel-to-reel tape recorder, using different voices for each character. After four years of high school Drama and two years of community theater doing Brecht, Coward, Inge, Wilde, and Shakespeare, Dean joined the US Air Force, where he entered Slavic Language Studies in order to work for the National Security Agency, both stateside and in Southern Italy. While in Italy, he had his own radio show on the base station. Later, Dean was asked to become a member of the looping group Visual Voices with Disney voiceover legend Ginny Tyler, with whom he worked as a VO and ADR artist on over 10 films. Currently, as a 4th-grade teacher, Dean has many opportunities to use his skills as a storyteller to engage a most highly demanding audience: a room of 30 nine-year-old kids (as opposed to 39-year-old kids).

Today, Dean strives to provide his VO clientele with a colorful range of vocal offerings, professionally recorded in his home studio, and easy directability (if that’s a word). All this is performed with a fast turnaround time to help the client solve their problems, assist them in realizing their creative vision, and ease their worried mind.
