As a teacher, James R. Alburger works with people who want to break into voiceover. As a producer, he works with business owners and advertising agencies who use radio advertising, and with other clients who want exceptional sound design and audio production. As a director, James takes an actor’s initial performance to a new level through his understanding of the nuance of interpretation and timing.
For more than 35 years James has worked with voiceover artists as a director, performer and studio engineer in Los Angeles and San Diego. For 25 years, he was a director and audio producer for television station NBC 7/39 in San Diego, receiving eleven Emmy Awards, Omni Intermedia Awards, and Silver Microphone Awards for his work. He is currently an independent audio producer, voice-actor, speaker, author, and teacher.

He has clients in Los Angeles; Las Vegas, San Diego, San Francisco, New York, and other major cities.
In addition to his skills as a teacher, speaker, audio producer and creative sound engineer, James R. Alburger has more than 35 years of performing experience on stage (as a professional magician) and in the recording studio. His extensive knowledge and experience in radio, television, theater, communication, and sound design is brought together in his workshops and seminars to teach the skills needed to break into the business of voiceover and develop a successful voiceover career.
His critically acclaimed book, The Art of Voice-Acting, focuses on the voiceover performer as an actor. The book is the foundation for comprehensive workshop and seminar training in which James R. Alburger teaches his voice-acting techniques with his partner Penny Abshire. James, and Penny also provide a training resource to help business executives and sales/marketing staff more effectively communicate their company's message to their audience.
James has also written one of the most comprehensive books on how to build a home studio, The VoiceActor’s Guide to Professional Home Recording and a pocket book titled How to Get Jobs for the Voices in Your Head designed to give anyone interested in voiceover the information they need to make an intelligent decision as to whether voiceover is something they should pursue.
