Since Bob Hurley was a young boy he has always wanted to be an actor. His guidance counselor dissuaded him and suggested that he become a policeman or fireman.
After 25 years at ABC news as an Editor and then a Supervisor, he was laid off at 53 years old.
So, he thought of his childhood dream and took acting classes. Then he reinvented himself as a voice over artist working remotely from home in rural Virginia.
Something possible due to the wide range of voice over jobs nowadays and the invention of the Internet.
He is the voice of Orbit Showtime Network in Dubai and also accepts freelance work. He also has his own business kitchenBOB LLC - cooking for guys!
His story is in the video attached.
I discovered Bob Hurley's story through this article in the Huffington Post.
