46-year-old Tim Friedlander (Music, '98) founded and runs five voice studios in the Los Angeles area and one in Colorado. He’s a 1992 graduate of Mount Vernon High School and a graduate of the Western Washington University Music Department. He has been in Los Angeles since 2002.

Friedlander has a masters in music education, has taught music for many years and plays guitar in The Urban Renewal Project, a 12- to 16-musician collective described on its website as “Brass. Bars. Beats. Original soul and hip-hop big band from L.A.”

“I actually started training up at Western in 1996,” he said. “I took my first voice-over lessons with some instructors in Seattle, and kind of — off and on — explored voice-overs over the years.

“I taught music in the private schools in L.A. for 10 years, and during all that time I was kind of pursuing voice-over a little bit. I went back to grad school in 2014, and at the same time I was exploring voice-over more professionally. Then in 2016 I went full time into voice-over.”
