Voice Actor Greg Houser

Greg is proof that anyone from any background can become a voice actor. He originally joined the voice acting ranks through his background in IT and Engineering (no, seriously).  Earning advanced degrees from Pennsylvania State University and sudying drama with the Walnut St. Theatre, the Wilma Theatre, and the People's Improv Theatre.

Without ever leaving his native Philadelphia, Greg has had a fun career behind the mic for over 18 years providing vocal talent for companies such as American Express, Dupont, Lockheed Martin, CBS, Honda of America, Virgin Mobile, Petsmart, and both the MBA & NBA. In the anime world, he's had the privilege to be cannon fodder for titles such asEvangelion, Ikki Tousen, One Piece, Shiki, and Tales of Vesperia. (alongside Dino Andrade). 

The need to relocate to Hollywood (and/or any of those other entertainment centers of the world) for a career in voice over is rule #1. Greg is living proof that rules are made to be broken!
